A few weeks ago Entertainment Weekly did a 10-year anniversary "Where Are They Now?" piece on the people behind The Blair Witch Project, which had you all scared and maybe-sorta believing it was real this time in the summer of '99. The actors have either quit Hollywood or found modest success (Josh Leonard was in this summer's indie hit Humpday), but as for the filmmakers, it's been a whole lot of nothin'.
But wait! They still have their brilliant original idea to cling to, which is apparently exactly what they're about to do. In a retrospective piece at BBC.co.uk directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez said they are in the process of making a third Blair Witch, though probably one bearing little relation to the sequel that the two of them had nothing to do with. Says Sanchez,
Given that the film's 10-year anniversary was met with general indifference, is there really any way these guys can get funding, much less distribution, for this project? I'm willing to be proven wrong, but my best is that these guys are the only Blair Witch fans clamoring for a third film.
