The Blair Witch Project is something of a dead franchise that just won’t stay dead. Every so often, we hear rumblings about a potential third installment or remake and then those rumors end up being unsubstantiated or the project fizzles for one reason or another. Well, recently Bloody Disgusting reported that there was movement on the franchise and that we should gear up for a potentially bigger announcement in the coming days.
BD says that an insider has told them that LionsGate may already be working on a third installment in the Blair Witch series. As for whether it’s a sequel, a remake, a spinoff, or something else entirely is still unknown.
The outlet is wagering that the Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett collaboration The Woods could be the project in question but they are currently unable to back that up with anything more than speculation.
What do you think about the possibility (however unlikely) of Wingard and Barrett taking on The Blair Witch? Let us know in the comments below.
