2014 is set to be a big year for the Paranormal Activity franchise, as yet another sequel will be haunting theaters this October, in the wake of The Marked Ones. While this month's installment was classified as a 'spin-off,' the impending sequel is being considered the official fifth installment in the franchise, and plot details are nonexistant at the moment. All we really know is that another family will find their lives overtaken by a demonic entity, as is the typical set up for films in the series.
Late last week, the folks over on Movie Hole scored some exclusive details about the cast of characters that will fill out Paranormal Activity 5, which gives us a bit more of an insight into the family whose home will be the sight of the titular activity. According to the casting sheets, the film will center around Ryan, his wife Emily, their 6-year-old daughter Leila and Ryan's younger brother Mike, who are described as follows...
"Ryan, 26-31, is a ‘big kid’ - he’s a video-game designer who has relocated his family from New York to Pala Alto for a cushy gig at Rockstar Games.
Though somewhat of a hippie (she’s into organic food, loves the arts and music, won’t let her daughter eat Gluten, and sports tattoos), wife Emily is considerably more serious than her young husband – she’s constantly on the go, does Yoga, and though loving, has an air of maturity about her. Her sister died a year before.
Their daughter Leila seems to be a mixture of both – a bit of a fearless, opinionated tomboy."
Directed by Gregory Plotkin, Paranormal Activity 5 is set for release on October 24th.
