'Blair Witch 3', a Sequel Rather Than Prequel


'...right now, Dan and I are actually working on an idea for a Blair Witch sequel,' says Eduardo Sanchez, the co-director/co-writer of 'The Blair Witch Project', on the proposed new installment.

The third "Blair Witch" movie is likely to be a sequel rather than prequel. To Bloody-Disgusting, Eduardo Sanchez, the filmmaker behind the hit 1999 horror "The Blair Witch Project", unraveled the plan he and directing and writing partner Daniel Myrick have for "Blair Witch 3".

"Between Dan and me and the Haxan guys that did the original Blair Witch, we are about as far along on a sequel idea as we've ever been," he explained. "This is the first idea that Dan and I have really latched onto that we thought, 'It would be cool.' It's a completely different kind of film, but we think it's in the original spirit of the first one."

"Everybody that I've talked to wants the prequel, that story of the witch," the filmmaker further revealed that he and Dan haven't thrown away prequel idea. "We still want to make that, but the powers that be will not let that happen right now. If we do the sequel and it makes some money and there's motivation to do another one, then maybe we can push the prequel a little bit."

As for when the confirmation on the project will be outed, he said, "In the next couple of weeks, something should happen; either a yes or a no or a maybe." He added, "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."

The original "Blair Witch" is presented as a documentary pieced together from amateur footage. Produced by the Haxan Films production company, it tells the story of three young student filmmakers who go missing while attempting to film a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch. A sequel called "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" was released on October 27, 2000.
