Spielberg to launch UFO and paranormal social network?

Hollywood mega-director Steven Spielberg is reportedly setting up a social network for people interested in paranormal and extra-terrestrial activity, inspired by his own personal experiences with the unknown.

The focus of the network will be on people who have an interest in, or have experienced paranormal phenomena, and the network may feature multimedia content of UFO sightings, paranormal activity and user-based content.

Stories of Speilberg's own personal experiences with ghosts are widely known; his stay in the Excelsior House led him to become so frightened by alleged ghosts that he fled the room and moved 20 miles away, forming the inspiration for the movie 'Poltergiest'.

The network may have been originally in development with Yahoo, but the project was abandoned before it was launched. But reports suggest that the idea lives on, and a team of developers are aiming for a mid-year launch.

1. No doubt a tie in to his new film.
The latest Raiders of the Lost Ark sequel is all about aliens and crystal skulls.

2. Aliens? I thought it had Russians instead of Nazis

I watched the trailer yesterday and I'm not sure if I like the CGI.

3. Apparently part of it takes place in Area 51.

If you look real fast, there's a clip of a crate that has stenciled on it, "Roswell, New Mexico." Looks like the same warehouse in which the Ark wound up, too.
