Back in 1999 Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick introduced the world to The Blair Witch Project, one of the most influential horror films of all time. Though it was, of course, followed up with a sequel, the duo had nothing to do with it…
…and now it seems they’re primed and ready to return to the woods. What’s the holdup? Read on for details!
In an interview with Movies.com while promoting his upcoming Bigfoot flick Exists, Sanchez hinted that he’s totally on board to revive the franchise, but the ball is at this point in Lionsgate’s court.
“You know, Lionsgate owns the property so it’s obviously up to them right now,” said Sanchez. “We’ve been talking to them for the past four or five years about doing it, but there’s nothing really in the works right now with us.”
Exists represents the reunion of Sanchez and Lionsgate, and when asked by the website if the reunion would further talks about another Blair Witch movie, Sanchez noted that it could potentially happen. Though again, nothing is planned at this time.
So what would Sanchez do with a sequel if Lionsgate handed him and Myrick the ball and told them to run with it? “Our plan for the sequel is definitely not doing a found-footage movie,” he says, seemingly intent on bringing a far different vision to the screen.
We’ll of course report more if there’s ever anything more to report in regards to this one!
