About three months ago Bloody Disgusting reported that a new found footage flick was on its way from Universal called Paranormalists. After that we heard nothing. Now today confirmation has finally come.
Variety reports that Universal Pictures’ Syfy Films has acquired Paranormalists, a pitch from Rob Letterman (Monsters Vs. Aliens), who is also attached to write and direct the project.
Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer will produce, while Kim Roth and Sarah Bowen will exec produce. Gregory Noveck, Syfy’s senior VP of production, will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.
The storyline, which is in the vein of the “Ghost Hunters” reality series, follows two stoners and a tech guy who stumble upon some paranormal activity for the first time. More as it comes, but I say again, didn’t we already kind of/sort of see this with Grave Encounters?
