Music Video Director Hopes to Return ‘Paranormalcy’

I’m always interested in seeing what music video directors can do on the big screen. Coming from telling short form stories in 30 seconds, it’s a big leap to take on an hour and half project. People like Michael Bay have succeeded, while his predecessors like Sam Bayer (Elm Street remake) have failed.

Musicvid director Ray Kay, whose credits include Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” is set to make his feature directorial debut on the supernatural thriller Paranormalcy, which Mitch Klebanoff is adapting from the novel by Kiertsen White, reports Variety.

Story follows a teen who works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency and discovers she may be at the center of a dark prophecy predicting the destruction of all paranormal creatures.

I don’t like plays on words, therefore I don’t like the title.
