Exclusive Update on The Blair Witch Sequel

Dan Myrick and Ed SanchezThere have been some rumblings across the World Wide Web as of late with regard to a possible sequel to The Blair Witch Project, which just recently celebrated its ten-year anniversary. In order to find out exactly what’s true and what’s rumor, we contacted Dan Myrick to get the lowdown.

According to Dan, “Ed [Sanchez, his co-director on the original] and I are brainstorming a sequel idea, but that’s as far as we’ve gone.

Which pretty much fits in with what Sanchez recently told the BCC News: “Ideally, each Blair Witch film would be a completely different kind of movie. We’ve thought about doing a film that takes place in the late 1700s and looks like a [Stanley] Kubrick movie with gritty looking people and lighting.

But now, we’re thinking about going back and and seeing what happened directly after the first film finished. I think it will have some kind of video element in it, but it won’t be a first person hand-held movie.

What do you guys think of the sequel idea? It won’t be easy to re-capture lightning in a bottle like the first time, but we’re all for them trying!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.


    • I actually agree. I think if the second movie was just called Book of Shadows, and WASN’T a sequel to the BWP, it would have been much better received as a quirky standalone flick.

  1. I’d love to see exactly what happened immediately after the camera guy gets knocked over… but that’s all I’d be interested in seeing!

  2. The mythology in Blair Witch is absolutely terrifying, so I’m down for another go-around provided the original creators are behind it.
