Blair Witch reboot gears up with Blumhouse

Blumhouse and Lionsgate have recently collaborated on thriller Imaginary which was released last month.


A reboot of 1999 classic The Blair Witch Project is in the works, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chair Adam Fogelson announced during the studio’s presentation at CinemaCon.

Per Variety, Fogelson says it’s a ‘new vision for Blair Witch that will reintroduce this horror classic for a new generation’

Blum said: ‘I’m very grateful to Adam and the team at Lionsgate for letting us play in their sandbox. I’m a huge admirer of The Blair Witch Project, which brought the idea of found footage horror to mainstream audiences and became a true cultural phenomenon.

‘I don’t think there would have been a Paranormal Activity had there not first been a Blair Witch, so this feels like a truly special opportunity and I’m excited to see where it leads.’
