‘The Blair Witch Project’ creators Eduardo Sanchez and Dan Myrick are once again chit-chatting about the possibility of a second sequel to the global phenomenon that was the 1999 original. It doesn’t even seem that the idea’s been green lit or anything as yet but still news is news.
“We’ve been working on an idea and it’s a concept that we like a lot,” Myrick tells Bloody Disgusting . “I can’t say anything about it now. Ed and I feel that the timing is right and enough time has gone by that the backlash to BLAIR WITCH has kind of subsided and a new generation of kids are out to embrace a BLAIR WITCH franchise on the merits of the movie itself rather than it trying to live up or be what the first film was, which it never will be.
Sanchez adds that they should know soon whether or not this flick will ever happen. “I don’t know how we’re going to release the story or whatever, but something’s probably going to happen by the end of the year where we’ll either say, ‘No, it’s not going to happen’ or hopefully, ‘Yes, it’s gonna happen.’ But the news is coming soon.”
