Ed Sanchez, one half of the creative couple that came up with "The Blair Witch Project" a couple of years back, is hopeful that his new film "Altered" will path the way for a prequel to his breakthrough flick.
Sanchez and co-creator Dan Myrick approached Lions Gate with an idea for a third "Blair Witch" film, one that tells the backstory of the film's titular character, but the studio passed, favouring the idea of a sequel more than a prequel.
But Sanchez tells readers on the Haxan site that he's still keen to make the prequel, and with "Altered", about alien abductees who get their own back against the aliens when they're lucky enough to capture one of them, getting some good buzz, it might just have a chance.
"I'm really hoping ALTERED does well enough so that LION'S GATE steps up and takes our PREQUEL idea seriously", he says. "As most of you know, last time we met they wanted to make another sequel and we all know how it went last time".
