As we know, Lionsgate is developing a new chapter in the saga of The Blair Witch Project and now, according to Bloody Disgusting , the studio would have found the director who will direct it.
In the latest issue of Production Weekly , as noted by the site, the name of Oliver Park , author of The Offering , is in fact indicated as director of Untitled Blair Witch Sequel . In addition, Production Weekly lists the shooting time as summer or fall.
But there is another interesting fact: the production company reported by Production Weekly is Haxan Films , the same as the original film, founded by the directors of the latter, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez , who are indicated here as producers. None of these details have been officially confirmed by Lionsgate.
Haxan Films was involved in the production of the first sequel, Secret Book of Witches: Blair Witch 2 , but not Adam Wingard ‘s Blair Witch . In both cases, Myrick and Sánchez attended as executive producers, but probably didn’t get a chance to give much creative input. This time, it could be that they intend to take a closer look at their creature.
