area51signRiding the waves of his cheapie ghost story’s success, Oren Peli’s follow-up Area 51 is in full swing.

His latest project will tell the story of three teens whose curiosity leads them to the notorious Area 51 portion of Nellis Air Force Base n the Nevada dessert. As expected, shaky camcorder footage and faux-real-life activities will ensue.

This time around, Peli will be working with a much larger budget—approximately $5 million, as opposed to the $11,000 budget for Paranormal Activity, which grossed more than $106 million since September of this year.

It’s no wonder Paramount Pictures has landed U.S. distribution rights and Jason Blum will be producing Peli’s Area 51 through Blumhouse Prods. Banner, reports Variety.

The film will find its way into theaters some time in 2010.
