Hollywood North Report brings some Canadian movie news that’ll thrill all you fans of PG-13 horror sequels: A director has been hired for "White Noise 2: Noisier."

(Just kidding about the "Noisier" part.)

"Brightlight Pictures announced its latest collaboration with Gold Circle Films on "White Noise 2: The Light," a sequel to the supernatural thriller and box office success "White Noise" that was shot in Vancouver in 2004. "White Noise 2: The Light" is a feature film scheduled to shoot in the Greater Vancouver area in early 2006. Patrick Lussier is directing on a script written by Matt Venne. The picture has not yet been cast. Rogue Pictures has acquired U.S. distribution rights with Mandate Pictures handling foreign distribution.

In "White Noise 2: The Light," the story follows a man who is brought back to life after his family is murdered. After his own personal near death experience, he undergoes a transformation that allows him to see people who are on the verge of death. Trying to save their lives, he realizes that a price has to be paid for trying to change the natural order of things."

For those who may not spend hours in the direct-to-video horror section of your local Blockbuster, Patrick Lussier is the director of films like "The Prophecy 3: The Ascent," "Dracula 2: Ascension," "Dracula 3: Legacy," and "Dracula 2000," which actually did get a theatrical release, but kinda stunk anyway. Mr. Lussier might be a better editor than he is a director; he cut flicks like "Scream 3," "Cursed," and "Red Eye," all of which, coincidentally enough, were directed by Wes Craven.
