Right from the jump my gut says that while De Palma has lots of polished flicks under his belt. I think it would be a mistake to turn the sequel into a seemingly bigger deal than it need be
The first 'Activity' out last Fall. had its marketing take off by low-cost word of mouth and online viral campaigns, the pic went on to make more than $100 million at the U.S. domestic box-office - stellar business for a movie made for just $10,000.
They should not slick up the sequel in any way or you might as well just call it Blair Witch 2 Surprised a big name De Palma is even on the list at all.
That film's director Oren Peli's has since moved on and as a consequence Saw VI director Kevin Greutert was set to helm the 'Activity' sequel. But Lionsgate flexed its option on Greutert to direct Saw VII -3-D which is opening the same weekend, October 22nd 2010 forcing Paramount Pictures to find another director.
