The success of Disturbia, which was a reworked teen version of the so hot right now Alfred Hitchcock‘s Rear Window, is unsurprisingly spawning another teen-Hitchcock movie, albeit puzzlingly a few years after the fact. Maybe The Man Who Knew Too Much has been tough to get on Netflix for the past 4 years?

Anyway, they’re getting around to The Kid Who Knew Too Much (is it really going to be called that? Good lord), and it’s apparently going to be a neat reversal of the premise for the first movie (movies, actually – Hitchcock made the movie once in the 30s, and remade it in the 50s) which has a couple traveling overseas trying to find their son who’s kidnapped as part of an assassination plot. The new version would have the “kid” of the title trying to rescue his parents, because that’s something that’s believable.

Film buffs will recall that the 1956 version of this story spawned a popular song for Doris Day “Que Sera Sera,” so it might make sense to cast a singer in the lead role. Might we be reporting in a few months that the movie is going to be called The Bieber Who Knew Too Much? (via SlashFilm)

The money train that is the Paranormal Activity franchise keeps plugging along for Paramount Pictures, with Bloody Disgusting reporting that Christopher B. Landon, the writer behind the Shia LaBeouf, Rear Window-redux Disturbia has been hired to pen the third installment of the young series with co-writer Michael R. Perry, the scribe behind Paranormal Activity 2. While most horror franchises are beginning to spin their wheels by the time the third part comes around, the PA franchise has found itself in the unique position of trending upward in terms of quality two films in.

Both installments thus far have been critically acclaimed, so the question of where the series goes for the third installment is on the minds of fans. While the default sentiment is that the studio will continue the story of the characters introduced in the first and second episodes, many believe that in order to prevent stale, familiar characters, the studio may go to a prequel the third time out, shedding some light on the history of the family and their macabre hijinks. Paramount has slated the film for an October 21, 2011 release date. Just in time for Halloween. Duh.

Regardless of the direction the producers take the third Paranormal Activity, one thing’s certain: if you watch a DVD screener of this franchise, it will lock you in your house, no matter how powerful you are in Hollywood.

Hey, kids! Christmas done come early here at Screen Junkies! And I hope you like melodramatic sci-fi, cause we’re about to shove the extended trailer for I Am Number Four right up your stocking.

The trailer brags about being produced by Michael Bay and directed by the guy who did Disturbia. That’s like bragging about being the guy who towels off Harvey Weinstein‘s armpits while he’s taking a schvitz. I assume Harvey Weinstein has a guy to do that. I know I would.
