After the enormous success of the horribly over hyped Paranormal Activity, a sequel was inevitable. Paranormal Activity 2 is bound to see the same fan reaction as that of the much needed Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.
Well, the people behind PA2 have finally decided on a director and they have determined that the man for the job is none other than Kip Williams.
You’ve never heard of Kip Williams? He is the director behind the hit movies Wings Over The Rockies, The Door in the Floor and The Adventures of Sebastian Cole. Never heard of those either? Neither have we.
The director of the first Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli had this to say about the decision on the film’s website:
“I have some awesome news for the fans of Paranormal Activity – director Kip Williams will join us for the next chapter of the story. We are thrilled to have Kip working with us. He is the guy we want at the helm, because he nows exactly what we want to deliver to the fans…and I can’t wait to be a part of what he’s putting together. I don’t want to spoil the story, but I promise it’ll surprise you. Stay tuned.”
Director Kevin Greutert was originally signed to direct. However, when Lionsgate learned that PA2 planned to go head to head with them in October they forced their option and made Greutert the director of Saw 3-D. Yup, even the Saw franchise couldn’t resist the new trend.
Paranormal Activity 2 starts production this May. It will more than likely be in 3-D.
