The Last Broadcast
Filmmaker John Stevenson hit Dread Central up to say that his planned remake of The Last Broadcast is not "dead" but is "severely delayed." Due to a wide variety of issues all coming to a head at the same time, it's looking less and less likely that The Last Broadcast will get a new life.
A while ago we reported on a 3D animated remake of The Last Broadcast, which if you remember followed two filmmakers, Stefan Avalos and Lance Weiler, as they had their own hunt in the woods looking for a nasty local legend pre-Blair Witch. Today we learned a bit more. Filmmaker John Stevenson dropped us a line with a quick update.
Nothing shocks us anymore. Nothing. Way back in 1998, even before The Blair Witch Project became the phenom that it was, two filmmakers, Stefan Avalos and Lance Weiler, had their own hunt in the woods looking for a nasty local legend in The Last Broadcast. The film played like an A&E documentary with an ending so polarizing that many either sing its praises or damn it to hell.
