A Paramount executive revealed that the success of Paranormal Activity 3 has all but guaranteed that there will be another sequel.
"I can't imagine that we wouldn't make a number four, and I imagine [Paramount Film Group president] Adam Goodman this morning is thinking about the challenge," Don Harris, Paramount's head of domestic distribution, told The Wrap. "I'm sure he's thinking, 'Now what do I do?'"
Paranormal Activity 3 opened to $54 million (£34 million) in the US last weekend, becoming the highest-grossing September/October opening ever.
Harris went on to say that he believes another film could be ready within the year.
"It's certainly possible to have another October release," he said.
"I'm sure the right material and the right director will have to come together with the budget because they don't spend a lot of money," Harris concluded.
