Briefly: Earlier this week, we learned that Paranormal Activity 5 had been shifted from fall 2013 to January 2014. Now we know what’ll take its place.

The studio has announced that Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will take over Paranormal’s old slot on October 25. The $15 million 2D film takes a Borat-like format, following an old man getting up to no good. Fans of the franchise will recognize Bad Grandpa from previous┬áskits.

The new date follows the same pattern established by the three previous Jackass movies, each of which opened in the fall. The most recent, Jackass 3-D, was particularly successful; its $50 million domestic opening is the second-best October performance of all time. [Variety]

Though an official announcment has yet to be made, earlier this week Paramount registered several domains for a film that would be called Jackass 4: Bad Grandpa. Read more after the jump. Read More »
