Original Blair Witch Director Wants to Bring Back Franchise in a Fresh Way
Nothing currently indicates that we are going to get a new Blair Witch movie. But if this day ever comes, one of the first administrators behind The Blair Witch Project has some very big ambitious ideas. Eduardo Sanchez, who co-directed the original and innovative horror film alongside Daniel Myrick, shared some of his potential projects for the future of the big screen franchise.
The Blair Witch Project was released in 1999, was one of the most revolutionary horror films ever published, bringing the concept of footage of horror found at the masses. There have been follow-ups, such as the much-maligned Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, and the surprise sequel to 2016, simply titled Blair Witch. But none of these movies match the original. In a new interview, Eduardo Sánchez explains how he would bring the series back to the big screen.
"I still think it's possible to bring back some of the mystery of Blair Witch., Which is its novelty.I am not sure that this is the way to go.For me, it would have to be a singularly strange film, it would have to be a movie I did not find the footage, of course, but something that does something that does not look like a normal movie, which is n & # 39; 39 not the same subject as a normal movie.I think the ownership of the film Blair Witch should have gone back We should have gone back in time and reproduce elements of mythology, but bring a unique vision, whether it's a new director, a new screenwriter or someone else, but we bring a unique vision, apart from everything in the universe, in this world. "
Indeed, there is a rich history behind Blair Witch herself, in addition to The films in which the films were shot have not yet been fully explored. One could say that the appeal of these films is a mystery, but, executed in the right way, a period piece that plunges into this story could be a unique way to revive the series. And that's exactly what Eduardo Sanchez wants.
"I've always wanted to make the original story of how Elly Kedward was convicted and banished into the woods, and what happened to that, Blair Township, toward the the end of the 1700s. For me it was the film I wanted to do after the first Blair Witch.We had a little piece of the window where I think we could have got it, it was done, but the calendar was not good.This was just not the case, for different reasons.I know Dan and me and [producer] Gregg [Hale] when we talk about the Blair Witch franchise, we have always thought that films should have their own signature, first of all, obviously they should not be found, especially the period pieces, and we thought to turn the story of Rustin Parr in black and white and that of Elly Kedward with completely unknown actors from Europe, with very thick, making it as unique and authentic as possible. the United States looked like that moment. I think it still fascinates me so much, whether it's Blair Witch or something else, I always have these ideas and I still have some movies I'd like to do, whether they're with Blair Witch or not, I do not know. "
Looks like it might have some vibrations from The Witch, whether or not this movie ever remains to be seen.At the present time, we know that there is a Blair A witch video game coming this summer, as well as a TV series that was unveiled last year, but we have not heard much about it since.
