The good folks over at Moviehole report:
Even after the critical bashing of √¢‚Ç¨≈ìBook of Shadows : Blair Witch 2√¢‚Ç¨¬ù √¢‚Ç¨‚Äú which was more a studio creation than anyone√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s √¢‚Ç¨‚Äú Dan Myrick and Ed Sanchez, creators of the √¢‚Ç¨≈ìBlair Witch Project√¢‚Ç¨¬ù seemed resolute to get their prequel movie made. It never happened. Talking to one half of the team today though, Myrick says it√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s still a possibility. √¢‚Ç¨≈ìNo movement on the √¢‚Ç¨≈ìBlair Prequel√¢‚Ç¨¬ù as of yet√¢‚Ç¨¬ù, he says. √¢‚Ç¨≈ìWe√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢re prepared to√¢‚Ç¨Àúre-pitch√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ the idea to the √¢‚Ç¨Àúnew owners√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ of Artisan if and when the time comes. We√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢d really like to do this film√¢‚Ç¨¬ù. The movie will address the legend behind the first film such as the original Blair witch, and the 1940’s serial killer of children mentioned in the first film.
Ok, I’ve met and talked with Ed Sanchez before, and I can honestly say he seems like a really nice guy… BUT. As good as the first Blair Witch Project was, the second was equally as awful. That film was so bad it actually scared me off of paying to see movies for about 2 months. Sanchez is a talented guy, so I can only hope he abandons the whole Blair Witch thing and pursues other projects.
