Whether it's ghosts or aliens, Paramount Pictures keeps it in the family, as Variety reports the studio has picked up the distribution rights to 'Area 51,' writer-director Oren Peli's follow-up to his surprise-hit haunted-house thriller, 'Paranormal Activity.'

This acquisition is certainly a no-brainer, since Paramount has already reaped the rewards of Peli's hugely successful 'Paranormal,' which has grossed over $100 million on a budget of $11,000.
