Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli announced this morning that Tod ‘Kip’ Williams (The Door in the Floor) will direct the sequel.
“I have some awesome news for the fans of ‘Paranormal Activity,'” Peli said. “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 knows 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.”
Made for about $15,000, Paranormal Activity became a box office hit as it earned $151 million worldwide.
The sequel starts filming in May and is scheduled to hit theaters on October 22. Peli, Jason Blum, Steven Schneider are producing and Akiva Goldsman will executive produce.
