Whilst franchise off-spin 'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones' enjoys a smidge more critical respect than the rather lackluster 'Paranormal Activity 4' here's hoping that that long overdue "break" in proceedings will help Gregory Plotkin's 'Paranormal Activity 5' regain some series composure. Today MovieHole have scored some interesting character info for the fifth installment that appears to be dealing with a brand new family unit once more. How they all relate to the overall story is still anybody's guess, which hopefully doesn't include the makers themselves. Plotkin, who has edited parts 2-4 plus 'The Marked Ones' to date, will direct from a script by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark. It begins shooting in LA next month and is eyeing up its typical Halloween release slot. Check out the newly revealed character deets below.
"Ryan, Emily, their 6-year-old daughter Leila, and Mike, Ryan’s younger brother (essentially a less fitter, less funkier version of his brother) essetially.
Ryan, 26-31, is described as 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.
And it goes without saying, Ryan and Emily’s family quickly realizes something is not OK within their new house."
