One indie filmmaker who couldn’t be more hot right now is Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli. Though we’ve been talking about his next film, Area 51, for over a month now, the project has finally firmed up an official start date!
According to Variety production starts next week on Area 51, which will employ the “found footage” narrative structure of his last film and tell the story of three teens whose curiosity leads them to the notorious part of Nellis Air Force Base in the Nevada desert.
“I’d rather not say anything about ‘Area 51′ except that I am very pleased to be working with the same team who stood by me for the two or three years it took ‘Paranormal Activity’ to get into theaters,” Peli tells the trade.
Returning as producer is Jason Blum, who produced Paranormal Activity through his Blumhouse Prods. banner. Steven Schneider and Stuart Ford are on board to executive produce.
Look for more on this one soon!
