A while back when news broke that Paranormal Activity was going to have an sequel the stories started to break who may or may not direct the follow up to the worldwide sucessfull microbudget flick.
First of all the first director many believed Saw Director Kevin Greutert would be directing, well he was apparently and due to something in his contract he had to go back to Saw Franchise and will be directing SAW 7 aka SAW 3D. Saw and Paranormal Activity 2 look likely to be at loggerheads this Halloween as both are been planned for a October 22nd release date. The next director in the firing line was Scarface director Brian De Palma then Akiva Goldsman I Am Legend, Hancock Producer.
So many of us believed the sequel to the movie reported of only cost $15,000 to make but rolled in $151 million worldwide would get a big name director? I’m afraid not, the director of Movie 2 is Todd ‘Kip’ Williams. Like me who is he? Kip Williams known movie to date is the mystery drama starring Oscar Winner Jeff Bridges & Kim Basinger Door In The Floor.
One rumour some sites got right was the involvement of the movie of Akiva Goldman who is on board as an executive producer with a script by Michael Perry and Oren Peli producing.
