Oren Peli produces and writes for The River
Paranormal Activity was a bona fide hit and it has made Oren Peli a very busy man.
FilmNation is to fully finance its first film, a prestige genre title from Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli set to go this summer.
Basner and his team will commence international pre-sales here on the untitled story, which Peli, riding high after producing the North American hit Insidious, wrote and is producing with Brian Witten.
“We are extremely excited about our new horror project, and while we can’t disclose too many details about it, rest assured it will be scary as hell,” Peli said. “We are honoured to have FilmNation as our partners.”
“Oren is a master of the genre and the timing was ideal to expand FilmNation’s reach and finance the project,” Basner said.
Peli directed and produced Paranormal Activity and produced the sequel. He also directed and wrote the upcoming Paramount acquisition Area 51 and produced Barry Levinson’s eco-horror The Bay, which Lionsgate will release in the US.
