During Lionsgate’s presentation at CinemaCon at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Adam Fogelson, chair, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group announced they are developing a reimagining of a horror classic “The Blair Witch Project” in partnership with Blumhouse.

This comes as Lionsgate and Blumhouse recently collaborated on the horror film, “Imaginary”. This next project with “The Blair Witch Project” is the first in a multi-picture pact with Blumhouse in which they will work together to reimagine other horror classics form the Lionsgate library.

Jason Blum will team up with producer Roy Lee on the new “Blair Witch Project”, Lee was a producer on the 2016 film “Blair Witch”.

“I have been incredibly fortunate to work with Jason many times over the years. We forged a strong relationship on The Purge when I was at Universal, and we launched STX with his film The Gift. There is no one better at this genre than the team at Blumhouse,” said Fogelson. “We are thrilled to kick this partnership off with a new vision for Blair Witch that will reintroduce this horror classic for a new generation. We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with them on this and other projects we look forward to revealing soon.”

The original Blair Witch film, “The Blair Witch Project” was first released 25 years ago in 1999. It became a worldwide blockbuster making $248 million and spawning two sequels. The film also became a source of inspiration for many found-footage style horror films to this day.

Currently there is no timeline on production or estimated release date.
