Read on to learn more on Rush Hour 4 and Blumhouse rebooting Paranormal Activity…
The first is the highly anticipated cross-cultural crime-fighting team in Rush Hour 4 starring martial arts legend Jackie Chan and frantic comedian Chris Tucker.
It’s been more than 10 years since we’ve seen Chan and Tucker together on the big screen. So far, Chan has confirmed that Rush Hour 4 is in development. While Jackie Chan sat down with The Cruz Show, to talk about his upcoming film ‘The Foreigner’, he spilled some tea that Rush Hour 4 was in development.
What we have heard is that Blumhouse Pictures would be open to a Paranormal Activity reboot, if writer Christopher Landon has an idea for one. Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse Productions, and Christopher Landon, are both currently out promoting Happy Death Day, which was produced by Blumhouse and directed by Landon.
However, when the idea of another Paranormal Activity came up, Blum and Landon were optomistic while speaking about another movie to Cinepop.
Here’s what Blum had to say about it.
“Paranormal Activity is on hiatus, but if Chris over here, who’s done four Paranormal Activity movies, if he has an idea to reboot it, we’re very open to hearing it.”
The Paranormal Activity franchise was created by Oren Peli in 2007, with the first movie getting a wide release in 2009, but Christopher Landon wrote four of the sequels (Paranormal Activity 2, 3, and 4). Oh yeah and the horrible spin-off, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones that we all just want to forget was made.
For the record, Paranormal Activity remains one of the most financially successful movies ever made, costing a mere $15,000 to make and grossing a grand total of $193.4 million. So it appears that a reboot would be good money.
