Paranormal ActivityHollywood just can't seem to leave Area 51. Fifteen years after 'Independence Day' made the notorious location of the Air Force's alien investigations wing a household term, Paramount Pictures has given 'Paranormal Activity' writer-director Oren Peli the go-ahead to tackle aliens in his follow-up film, appropriately entitled 'Area 51.'

The move comes in the wake of the breakout success of 'Paranormal' -- a low-budget indie about a couple terrorized by a demonic spirit -- which Paramount rolled out in a series of underground 'Rocky Horror'-style midnight screenings two weeks ago and is now expanding to round-the-clock showings this weekend in 40 cities.
