“I’m scared to close my eyes, I’m scared to open them! We’re going to die out here!”

The Blair Witch trio of Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams mean business. The actors took to social media to share that they have asked Lionsgate for future and retroactive residual payments, want meaningful consultation on future films in the franchise and would like the studio to create a grant for aspiring filmmakers.

The trio also found support in the directors and producers of the original film as well. Both statements can be seen below.

Directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez, The Blair Witch Project was released on July 14, 1999. The film became an absolute blockbuster hit as it introduced a new generation to found-footage. When it was all said and done, the film earned $248.6 million at the box office on a budget that was well under $1 million.

The trio of Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams will be appearing at CT HorrorFest on September 21-22 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.
