Looks like part 3 of the Paranormal franchise is shaping up nicely!
Back in January, we heard that Disturbia writer Christopher B. Landon was signed on to write Paranormal Activity 3…BUT then he contacted us and said that nothing was confirmed yet.
Now it looks like Landon has been officially attached to write the script, and the film has also signed on Catfish's Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to direct.
According to reports, the story for PA 3 revolves around "a family being terrorized by the entity from the first two movies in the 1980s."
As we said in January, let's hope that this movie is written with the same care as the first two, and then kept as a trilogy. It would be a shame to see this franchise jump the proverbial shark, like the Saw series.
Are U excited for Paranormal Activity 3? Do U think the Catfish guys are right for the project?

Wow, they're not wasting any time popping these out, are they?
Paranormal Activity 3 has been well in the works since the stellar release of its predecessor this past October, but we're hearing now that the third installment will be written by Disturbia writer Christopher B. Landon, alongside the sequel's screenwriter, Michael R. Perry!
We LOVED the way the second one expanded upon the original, but we hope this one is written with the same care as the other two - and then is left as a trilogy!
We don't want this to become the next Saw series!
Thoughts? Are U excited for Paranormal Activity 3??
UPDATE: Looks like things aren't fully confirmed yet. Writer Landon reveals to PerezHilton.com:
"I have not officially signed on to write this film. I am a credited writer on Paranormal Activity 2 and that is most likely the root of this rumor. I had a great time working with all the talented people that made part 2 such a huge success but we are still figuring things out."

Check out the just-released 'Night Version' of the Rihanna/Doritos video for Who's That Chick? (above)!
It's essentially the same thing as the 'Day Version,' but with more of a Disturbia feel to it!
Perfect for Halloween, we'd say!

After being sued by a literary agent that owns the rights to Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, Steven Spielberg must have been relieved. The lawsuit claiming that his 2007 hit Disturbia was a rip-off of the short story was dismissed in court on Tuesday.
Judge Laura Taylor wrote the following in her ruling:
"The main plots are similar only at a high, unprotectable level of generality. Where 'Disturbia' is rife with sub-plots, the short story has none. The setting and mood of the short story are static and tense, whereas the setting and mood of 'Disturbia' are more dynamic and peppered with humor and teen romance."
The agent was suing Spielberg, DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures for copyright infringement.
Better luck next time!
