BLAIR WITCH 3's STATUS
Looks like Countingdown and IMDB got our hopes up, and it's not actually true that Blair Witch 3: The Curse is in production....
The following was reported and claimed to be FALSE by Creature-Corner, 'Haxan Films' Blair Witch 3: The Curse has begun production. In addition, a teaser trailer and new site are on-line. You will notice the URL www.blairwitch.com is no longer active. The new URL is www.blairwitch-thecurse.com. Release is expected in October of 2003. You can also find out info on the productions companies at the site.'
The IMDB confirms all of this information even though they do occasionally make mistakes.
But more news soon followed...
Dan Myrick of Haxan Films talked today to Moviehole about how the rumors of Blair Witch 3 being in production arent exactly all that false........
Moviehole reports, 'The rumours about a Blair Witch 3 beginning production soon aren't exactly false. Moviehole talked to Haxan Films, Dan Myrick, today who said there's a chance you might see the prequel soon - but only if the studio decides they're taking it. 'The fact of the matter is, Ed and I have an existing deal in place to write a 'Prequel Script' for Artisan, but they have yet to decide whether or not they want to exercise this deal, so we've put it on the back burner for now and have since moved on to other projects. Ed is tweaking his script, 'White Trash' and I'm in the process of trying to set up my 'Tomorrow Man' project.', explains Myrick. 'We'll just have to wait and see what Artisan decides to do with the Blair franchise.'
