Looks like Paramount is going to go ahead with the plans to release 'Paranormal Activity 2', the schedule release date is October 22, 2010. This time around it seems like both Paranormal Activity 2 and Saw VII will lace up the boots and go toe to toe, to do battle in the ring! Director Kevin Greutert of Saw VI is taking over this time around. Question is, will this sequel live up to its predecessor? or will it be like a bottle of ambien and put many viewers to sleep! Hopefully its euphoric and knocks a few of us into respirators.
As of yet the script, which will be penned by Michael R Perry, and title are strictly under wraps, which lead us to hope that they're going to avoid a direct follow-up and create something low-fi but also original. Oren Peli, the man who cranked out the original for $15,000 and saw it earn $151 million worldwide, won't be directly involved this time, but he is executive producing and dashed off a quick statement to belay our fears: “These guys get it, and the fans won’t be disappointed." Nice try, but we'll wait and see.
