"Paranormal Activity" is slowly becoming a yearly tradition.
The franchise topped the box office in its debut weekend, pulling in $30.2 million with its fourth film, and Deadline Hollywood reports that a fifth movie is in the works. As with the rest, a rumored "Paranormal Activity 5" would arrive just in time for Halloween next year.
But studio Paramount isn't pausing there - according to Deadline, there are also plans to create a spinoff geared toward a Latino audience.
The untitled project would bring in the demon from the "Paranormal Activity" franchise, would be filmed partly in Spanish, and would feature Latino actors. If you saw "Paranormal Activity 4," then you might've spotted a teaser for the film, which is said to have Christopher Landon on board as director and a potential spring 2013 release.
It'll be interesting to see how these reported projects develop, as the franchise as a whole is slowing down. Although no one can sneeze at "Paranormal Activity 4's" opening weekend haul, considering the budget was only $5 million, the movie did earn less than its predecessors.
According to Entertainment Weekly, this year's fourth "PA" film brought in 43 percent less than "Paranormal Activity 3" did when it opened, and 26 percent less than the second film's bow.
Are you interested in seeing another "Paranormal Activity" movie (or two), or do you think this weekend's gross means it's time to let the franchise die?
