Paranormal Activity 2 has found a director in Kip Williams. Who?

03.26.2010

Well PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 has found a director, and I'll bet you ten million dollars you didn't guess who they ended up picking. With a shortlist that formerly had the minds behind SAW, WOLF CREEK and SESSION 9 on it (not to mention a big fat rumor about Brian De Palma), this final decision arrives with a bit of a “WTF?”

Kip Williams will be directing PARANORMAL 2, according to a short and cryptic note posted on the movie’s page. Who the f*ck is Kip Williams you ask? Well, he’s directed WINGS OVER THE ROCKIES, THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR and THE ADVENTURES OF SEBASTIAN COLE, none of which I can say I’ve seen, but uh, the middle one has Jeff Bridges in it?

Why this seemingly insanely random choice? Oren Peli explains in his note:

“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 nows 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’ll surprise you. Stay tuned.”

Damn, that must have been one hell of a pitch. Either that or every single other horror director they approached turned them down or tried to sell them a concept of Kate pursuing a dream of becoming the first demon possessed woman to sail across the Atlantic Ocean or something equally idiotic.

So..."Kip," what the hell do you have for us?

Will he cast Amy?

Isn't Kip Williams the green slave alien from Futurama? I wonder if Zapp Brannigan approves of him directing!

Paranormal Activity is so overrated, i found it extremely boring & not scary at all, people are so gullible, at least Blair Witch was creepy but also a bit overrrated.

Didn't see the first one, don't care for hype.

Th Door In The Floor was a good one-time watch. Rented it, kept my interest, returned it. That's about it. Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger are in it.

Another unnecessary sequel that will probably spawn a series like Saw and be something for the fucktards to see every Halloween.

gdi...

part one was complete and utter shit, i sat there for approx. 2hours in the dark with surround sound booming waiting for the scare of my life and months later i am still waiting. the only reason this is hetting a sequel is because it made a boatload of cash at the box office, if they follow the same procedure (shoe string budget+lots of hype) then it might be another comercial success, but i doubt they can get any more substance.

The Door in the Floor was a competent adaptation of a John Irving novel. It had an interesting mood.

I remember seeing The Adventures of Sebastian Cole a long time ago, but cant say if it was any good.

Anyhow, I dont see why Id care about Paranormal Activity 2.

But why do they call him Kip suddenly ? He's been credited as Tod on all his other films.
