While a director still hasn't been named, it seems a sequel to last year's box office phenomena has found a new producer. Deadline New York is reporting that Akiva Goldsman will executive produce Paranormal Activity 2.
It was rumored that Goldsman was going to direct the film, but the new story reports that Goldsman is just on board as an executive producer and will help with the story for the sequel. Oren Peli, who directed the original Paranormal Activity film, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider are producing the sequel.
The site is also reporting that a May start date has been set for filming and that a director should be announced soon. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all updates surrounding Paranormal Activity 2 as soon as we have more information.
