Eduardo Sanchez Talks BLAIR WITCH 3

I remember a group of us going to see The Blair witch Project at the theater and I'd never seen a movie like this. Heck I thought it really happened for a while! Shut up, you did too! This movie paved the way for many of our new style horror flicks we see today.  Now it looks like we've made a few steps forward in making the long overdue third entry. Eduardo Sanchez talked to Bloody-Disgusting about BLAIR WITCH 3 and it looks promising!  Here's what he had to say;
"It's completely up to Lionsgate,  Dan and I are ready to do it. We've been toying around with a sequel idea that we really like. It's just a matter of getting our schedules in line and having Lionsgate sign off on the idea. We've been ready to do a 'Blair Witch' movie for a long time. We're as close as we've ever been to making it happen, but it's still not a guaranteed thing."
 It also looks like  Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2. will be ignored in the third installment, that's not a bad thing!
"I actually liked the sequel, but at the same time it exists in a world outside of the movie. So if we want to do a sequel to 'Blair Witch Project,' we have to stay in that world, which 'Book of Shadows' didn't stay in that world. 'Book of Shadows' created a different world. It's like if the sequel to 'Jaws' started with shots of people lined up to see 'Jaws' in the movie theater. For 'Book of Shadows' it worked in a certain way, but to me my biggest gripe with Artisan was you shouldn't have called it 'Blair Witch 2.' It would've been fine to call it 'Blair Witch Chronicles'. It wasn't really a sequel to our movie so it would be a direct sequel to our film living in that mythology of Burkittsville, being possessed, haunted by something."
No first person shaky camera? That's the plan for now!

"Right now the idea has no first person in it at all, but we'll see. There's always room for new ideas to come in. The plan is to have [Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams] back. They're probably not going to be the main characters, but they're definitely characters in the sequel."

So, who's excited about this cool news? I am and I really want to see this story they've been sitting on!
