Since making his directorial debut with Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli has been working mostly as a producer — including two Paranormal Activity sequels, Insidious, and the currently-airing ABC series The River. While Peli might someday finish his second directorial effort, Area 51, he already has another completed producing project opening this year.
According to Deadline, the Peli-produced horror thriller Chernobyl Diaries has been acquired by Alcon Entertainment. The story, created by Peli, takes place in the city of Prypiat, where the workers for the Chernobyl nuclear reactor once lived. When a group of friends vacationing in Europe finds themselves stranded in the abandoned city, they soon discover they are not alone. more about Chernobyl Diaries >>
