The man who’s got the job of turning a Paranormal Activity sequel around by mid-October has been revealed…

However we look at it, there's still a distinct smell of poisoned chalice about Paranormal Activity 2. Announced at the back end of last year and with a release date of October 22nd already locked, the film lost its original choice of director, Kevin Greutert, when he proved to be contractually obliged to helm Saw 7 instead.

Then, last month names such as Akiva Goldsman and Brian De Palma were being linked with the project. As most of us suspected, De Palma was a no-go, but finally, Paramount has its man.

The announcement came in the form of a statement from Oren Peli, who helmed the first film. He wrote:

I have some awesome news for the fans of Paranormal Activity - director Kip Williams will join us for the next chapter of the story. »
