Last week, we /saw-vis-kevin-greutert-to-direct-paranormal-activity-sequel/reported that Saw VI director Kevin Greutert had signed on to direct the sequel to Oren Peli's Paranormal Activity which would premiere in theaters October 22, the same weekend as Saw VII 3D, directed by David Hackl.

Now, according to Deadline, Saw franchise partners Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate have exercised their option on Greutert to direct Saw VII 3D, which effectively bumps Hackl, who will be assigned to a new film quickly. For the moment, Paranormal Activity 2 is without a director.

No new release dates were announced, so we'll assume game is on for October 22.
