Gregory Plotkin, who served as the editor and co-producer on Paranormal Activity 2, Paranormal Activity 3, Paranormal Activity 4 and the spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, is making his directorial debut with Paranormal Activity 5.

We reported last night that Almanac scribes Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark, who also goes by Andrew Deutschman, are writing the script, although no plot details have been revealed. Jason Blum and Oren Peli are producing, although it isn't known when production will get under way.

2013 marks the first year since the Paranormal Activity franchise launched in 2009 that there will not be a sequel in theaters. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, which is being directed by Christopher Landon, is hitting theaters on January 3, 2014, with Paranormal Activity 5 to follow on October 25, 2014.

Gregory Plotkin has previously served as assistant editor on Pleasantville, The Insider and The Break-Up, to name just a few.
