One of the surprises at San Diego Comic Con is that Lionsgate has been working on a sequel to 1999’s The Blair Witch Project in development for years under the working title of The Woods. Check out the trailer, posters and a film synopsis below.
The film stars James Allen McCune (Shameless), Callie Hernandez (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series), Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry (The Following), Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson. Blair Witch arrives in theaters September 16, 2016.
“In the film, a group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.”
