Tod 'Kip' Williams to helm horror sequel

Tod “Kip” Williams is set to direct the much-anticipated “Paranormal Activity 2” for Paramount.

He’ll direct the sequel from a script by Michael Perry.

Producer Oren Peli, who directed and wrote the original “Paranormal Activity,” announced the news Friday morning on Facebook. Jason Blum also is a producer on the fledgling horror franchise.

Williams’ previous credits include writing and directing Kim Basinger-Jeff Bridges drama “The Door in the Floor,” as well as festival favorite “The Adventures of Sebastian Cole.”

Last fall, “Paranormal Activity,” produced for less than $15,000, was a runaway hit at the B.O., grossing $107.9 million domestically.

“Paranormal 2” is set to unspool in theaters Oct. 22 — the same that that Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures open “Saw VII 3D.

Steven Schneider and Akiva Goldsman are exec producres on “Paranormal 2.”
