The Paranormal Activity team – Oren Peli, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider – is getting behind Barry Levinson’s new film called The Bay.
Formerly known as Isopod, the story is culled from a collection of camera phone accounts, 911 calls and other mediums and tells of a viral outbreak on the eastern seaboard. Much of the focus is thrown on the small town of Claridge, Maryland where chaos ensues.
Levinson – who has a wide career writing, producing and directing – was born in Maryland, so he’s bringing a little mayhem back to his home state. He recently directed Al Pacino in “You Don’t Know Jack,” the story of Jack Kevorkian.
