It’s official: "Paranormal Activity 4" is on its way.

Paramount announced in a recent news release that the studio plans to release yet another scream-filled installment of the movie series in 2012.

The announcement reads: “In 2012, Paramount’s release slate highlights include ‘World War Z,’ a zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster, ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation,’ the next installment in the global franchise starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Channing Tatum, a new chapter in the ‘Paranormal Activity’ franchise, and ‘The Dictator,’ starring Sacha Baron Cohen and directed by Larry Charles, the team behind ‘Borat.’"

“Paranormal Activity 3,” which hit theaters just in time for Halloween last year, grossed more than $200 million worldwide, so it’s no surprise Paramount is planning yet another scare-fest.

Still no word from the studio on when we can expect to see the fourth movie in theaters, but another Halloween release may be in the cards.
