Paranormal Activity 4 has a writer and a release date. We are halfway there! The fourth installment of the wildly successful found-footage series is keeping the plot under wraps, but one can only assume that, since each installment acted as a prequel to the film before, that this one will follow suit. So who is in charge of this mystery script?
Writing duties have gone to Zack Estrin. Estrin ought to have a good grasp of Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli's style; he is one of the executive producers on Peli's TV series, The River. Estrin has written and produced for a number of genre and genre-lite TV series: No Ordinary Family, Tru Calling, Miracles, and Charmed, to name a few.
Paranormal Activity 4 will open in theaters on October 19th, following in the franchise's pattern of opening for Halloween.
