HOLLYWOOD – The breakout 1999 horror film The Blair Witch Project is back in the headlines as Studio Exec can exclusively reveal that the film “written and directed” by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez was not actually written and directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez.
In fact, the ‘found footage’ classic was actually found rather than made and everything that takes place on the video actually happened.
The publicity for the film made much of the idea that the film was based on found footage after three young people, a student film crew, went missing in the woods. A ground-breaking viral campaign used the internet to spread all sorts of rumours to create the impression that the film was indeed based on real events.
However, it now turns out that the producers were playing a double game, and in effect hiding in plain view the fact that the film is actually what it originally purports to be that is an actual document which seems to show deadly supernatural forces at work and explain, to some extent, what happened to the missing characters Heather, Josh and Mike who were ostensibly played by ‘actors’ Heather Donahue, Josh Leonard and Mike Williams, actors who incidentally have never appeared in anything ever again, despite having obviously faked IMDB pages.
It goes without saying that no one involved in the making of the film was available to comment (because they are all dead or worse).
The Blair Witch Project 3 is due for release in 2015.
