This bit of news really made my day. Kevin Greutert, director of last years box office failure known as Saw VI, has just been announced as director of the sequel to last years box office success Paranormal Activity. I really feel Kevin was the best director attached to the Saw franchise and I can't wait to see what he does with PA2. It's gonna be one interesting Halloween season. here's the official announcement from heatvisionblog.com: Something’s moving in the “Paranormal Activity 2” house. Paramount has hired screenwriter Michael R. Perry and director Kevin Greutert to create the sequel to 2009’s biggest surprise hit, “Paranormal Activity,” which scared up $151 million in worldwide grosses in the fall on a shoestring $15,000 budget and a shrewd, opt-in Web marketing campaign. Significantly, Paramount will unleash it in theaters on the pre-Halloween weekend of October 22, which sets it against that date’s reigning champion in previous years, the next installment in Lionsgate’s “Saw” series (this year would be “VII”). In a symbolic twist, Greutert made his directorial debut on the sixth “Saw” film, which grossed just $31 million worldwide, with observers thinking that the franchise may be bleeding dry. Jason Blum and Oren Peli, who masterminded the first “Activity,” are producing the second iteration. Steven Schneider will serve as executive producer. “These guys get it, and the fans won’t be disappointed,” said Peli of Perry and Greutert’s participation. Unsurprisingly, the filmmakers are keeping the story line — as well as the film’s actual title — hidden in the attic."
