Producers of ABC’s The River are no stranger to the Paranormal Activity series. Executive producer Jason Blum acted as producer for Paranormal Activity and Oren Peli was the director/producer for the same movie. Now, another executive producer of The River has been tagged to contribute to the paranormal horror series. Zack Estrin has closed a deal with Paramount to pen the next installment in the series, Paranormal Activity 4.
Estrin has the genre experience, having been a writer and co-executive producer for Prison Break and writer for No Ordinary Family. This, along with his relationship and experience with Jason Blum and Oren Peli while working on The River, may give the viewers an amazing experience with this sequel.
Directors of Paranormal Activity 3 (Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman) are expected to return, but currently, negotiations have not been initiated with the pair.
Paranormal Activity 4 has a release date of October 19, 2012.
