Whether or not you thought Catfish was real (is this still a debate? Was it ever settled? More importantly, did anyone care?) the duo behind it are using it’s real success for better projects. Well, better in terms of being handed a highly successful and lucrative franchise instead of following one of your friends as he tries to land an internet “girl.” Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will take over Paranormal Activity 3 from the original and its sequel director Oren Peli. Paranormal Activity 2 writer Christopher Landon will also be returning to pen the third installment.
I guess this makes logical sense for the duo although one has to wonder what kind of direction a movie needs when it’s mostly security camera footage and doors opening. Boom, roasted.
