‘Paranormal Activity 3′ Goes For Even Cheaper By Hiring Documentary Directors

When it comes to just setting up a camera and seeing what happens, you get an overlap between the premise of Paranormal Activity and the philosophy behind many documentary filmmakers, as well as those super boring art movies you see in galleries.

Maybe that’s why Paramount is hiring Catfish documentarians Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to direct Paranormal Activity 3. This will be the first narrative feature for the duo, so it’s a little odd that they’re giving them the keys to a highly anticipated franchise film. Eh, I guess documentaries and scripted movies are pretty much the same, especially if you fake a lot of stuff.

Oh, not only is this Joost and Schulman’s first narrative movie, but it has to be ready for theaters by October, and they don’t even have a finished script yet. Have fun, guys. (/Film)
