‘Blair Witch’ Sequel Reportedly Inks Director As Filming Nears

by Thomas Tuna

Will more footage be found?

Another sequel to the 1999 surprise found-footage horror hit The Blair Witch Project is in the works from Lionsgate, and it looks like a director has been selected.

Oliver Park (last year’s The Offering) will helm the new as-yet-untitled film, according to a report on Production Weekly. And plans call for the feature to start shooting in late summer or early fall. No release window has yet been announced.

The original The Blair Witch Project--written and directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez–is a fictional story of three student filmmakers who hike into the Black Hills of Maryland to film a documentary about a local myth–the Blair Witch.

The trio disappears, but their equipment and footage are found a year later, and the “found footage” is the resultant movie. Earning nearly $250 million worldwide, The Blair Witch Project is one of the most successful independent films of all time.
