Paramount snags followup from 'Paranormal Activity' director

Posted on

U.S. distribution rights for Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli’s next film have gone to Paramount Pictures, Variety reports. Area 51 is an aliens-related film using the same “found footage” format as Paranormal Activity, though it had a higher budget due to that film’s success. Shooting finished in early November, with a 2010 release expected.
