Universal Finds More FootageSee? We told you found footage flicks were coming out of the woodwork! Just hours after bringing your attention to three new ones from around the globe, Universal has announced that they have another one cooking!

According to Deadline Universal has completed a pre-holiday acquisition of a spec script written by The Strangers writer/director Bryan Bertino. The project was acquired to be produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum along with Marc Platt and Adam Siegel of Marc Platt Productions. Bertino and his Unbroken Pictures partner Adrienne Biddle will also be producers. Blum and Platt have term deals at the studio. Blum is producer of the Paranormal Activity films.

Deadline first reported on the script under the title Mockingbird, but at present it is untitled. Like Paranormal Activity, the Bertino spec is based on “found footage.” Bertino is not aboard to direct the film.

More as it comes.
