A True Sequel to "Blair Witch Project" Being Planned 


"Blair Witch Project" was a phenomenon and the filmmakers, Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick, were faced with a conundrum. How could they top its $250 million success?

Capitalizing on the film's worldwide buzz, the crappy "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" was released to a resounding thud!

Now, Sanchez and Myrick are planning a true sequel to the first "Blair Witch" although they admit they're still trying to figure out which direction to take.

Sanchez and Myrick revealed to BBC 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."

As for the actors? The filmmakers revealed:

"I (Myrick) talk to Josh (Leonard) quite regularly and Mike Williams as well. Actually, he had a role in my last movie.

"Heather, I haven't seen in years. The last I heard, she had got out of the business and gone up north and is living on a ranch somewhere.

"Maybe she's still traumatised," he adds.
