Please read the linked article and vote in our poll if you would like to see an official extended version of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. We also encourage fans to post comments at the end of the linked article. I will share everyone's feedback with Eduardo Sánchez.
Perhaps a sizable response will spark some real interest to make this a reality.
[Admins - Can you please make this post a sticky in a prominent place on the forum to draw attention and help elicit feedback?] UPDATE
We're scheduled to have Eduardo Sanchez and a second surprise guest on our next podcast (if everyone's schedule holds out). We'll be recording this Monday (8/29) [and publishing later in the week].
I strongly encourage everyone to please visit the article in the first post and: (1) vote and (2) post your comments after the article. I'll be sharing the results with Eduardo.
Please share these links with other forums covering Blair Witch or friends who would like to see this happen and have them vote and comment! Thanks!
Actually, Lionsgate are the ones that will have to be convinced. They own the rights and Ed (or anyone else) can't touch it without the green light from LG.
Thanks for the sticky.
Eduardo is backing the article. And yes, Lionsgate would have to greenlight the project as the owners of the franchise. Again, I encourage everyone to also post comments at the end of the article (not just vote). The more the better!
Well, the article says the movie was filmed in 1999, Also, in a Q&A panel Daniel Myrick was asked how many hours of film was shot originally and his answer was simply "28 hours". (the article says 19 hours)
I asked Eduardo how many hours of footage there were. He said 19-22 hours sounds about right. Wasn't as high as 28.
Again, everyone please comment on the original article. The more written feedback we have the greater the likelihood of this becoming a reality.
