Woodsploitation Comes To TV with BLAIR WITCH
“It’s inevitable. I think it’s a brand that will keep inspiring people.” - Eduardo Sanchez (director of The Blair Witch Project)
A few months back we reported on the potential of a Blair Witch, but it looks like we may actually see that rumor come to fruition!
Deadline is reporting that Lionsgates' newly branded digital content space, Studio L, will be developing Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick's Woodsploitation opus The Blair Witch Project for television. There is no other information outside of the fact that someone out there, right now, is thinking of new and fascinating ways to try and scare us in the backwoods of Burkittsville.
About the new platform, Studio L, Executive VP Seth Laderman said:
“In today’s fast-changing media landscape, Lionsgate is committed to creating and distributing various types of content for next generation audiences with some of the most exciting creative voices and innovative partners in our industry. The projects announced today signal our commitment to finding stand-out material, incubating new talent, and delivering authentic storytelling. We will also continue to cultivate and foster fresh opportunities with existing Lionsgate properties, all built around Studio L’s low-risk, high-reward distribution model.”
There are no further details at this moment, but with the way the last film went, TV may be the only way to continue discovering new mysteries about the Blair Witch. Either way, grab your maps and sleeping bags, because we're going for another excursion into the Black Hills.
