There have been several names mentioned lately as to who will be directing Paranormal Activity 2 and it seems they have finally decided on a director. Paranormal Activity director Oren Peliannounced that Kip Williams will direct Paranormal Activity 2. Here's the statement Peli released.
I have some awesome news for the fans of Paranormal Activity - 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 will surprise you. Stay tuned.
Previously, names such as Brian De Palma and Akiva Goldsman (who is also producing the sequel) had been mentioned to direct the sequel. Kevin Greutert was originally set to direct until Lionsgate forced Greutert to direct Saw VII 3D since he was still under contract. A release date has already been set for October 22. We'll be sure to keep you updated on any further Paranormal Activity 2 details as soon as we have more information.
