WHAT HAPPENED TO HEATHER…???
After 17 years, moviegoers will finally find out what happened to Heather Donahue in the Maryland woods. Here are some things to know about the sequel to The Blair Witch Project.
2 of 7 New Director and Writer At the helm of Blair Witch are director Adam Wingard and writer (and frequent collaborator) Simon Barrett, who both caught the eye of studio chiefs with their work in the recent V/H/S franchise and You’re Next. The pair was pitched the idea of crafting a new Blair Witch movie in 2013, finally agreeing to a deal that entailed keeping the whole project a secret from the public. Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, who were already friends with the pair at the time, were kept in the loop.

3 of 7 O Sister, Where Art Thou? Blair Witch follows the exploits of James Donahue (James Allen McCune) and his college-age friends, as they head into Maryland’s Black Hills in search of answers regarding the fate of his sister Heather, who disappeared some 22 years prior. This is the same Heather Donahue character that is the central figure of The Blair Witch Project.

4 of 7 Surprise, Surprise The launch of the Blair Witch trailer at San Diego Comic-Con this summer was one of the event’s biggest surprises. A trailer for a movie entitled the The Woods was later revealed to be Blair Witch, causing a sensation on social media. The studio went to great lengths to keep things under wraps for years, shooting in secret in Vancouver and also releasing a diversionary trailer earlier in the year.

5 of 7 Scared on Set Adam Wingard used a variety of tricks during the shoot to ensure that the stars of the movie looked sufficiently scared on camera. He explained in an interview, “I found myself trying out all kinds of tricks. I developed my new jump-scare system. I have a collection of air horns … I call them my ‘scare horns.’ There’s nothing like a good air horn right behind an actor’s ears to make them jump and give you an appropriate scream when you need it.” Titles: Blair Witch People: Corbin Reid Photo by Chris Helcermanas–Benge © 2016 – Lionsgate
6 of 7 Back to Burkittsville Like the original, the sequel is set in Burkittsville, a real-life town among former Civil War battlefields in central Maryland. While principal filming took place in Vancouver, the town continues to be a source of fascination for horror fans, many of whom make a pilgrimage to the woods to get a firsthand look. In preparation for another wave of film tourism, town officials have taken the precaution of removing all “Welcome to Burkittsville” signs since a number of them were stolen after the release of the first and second movies. Titles: Blair Witch People: Wes Robinson , Valorie Curry
7 of 7 No Strangers to Horror The cast of Blair Witch may be 17 years removed from the original movie but they’re not new to the horror genre. James Allen McCune, who plays James Donahue, had a recurring role as Jimmy on “The Walking Dead.” Callie Hernandez (Lisa Arlington) appeared in two episodes of 2014’s “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.” And Valorie Curry (Talia) played the vampire Charlotte in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Titles: Blair Witch People: Callie Hernandez
1 of 7 Book of Shadows, What? While this is the third film in the franchise, Blair Witch is a direct sequel to The Blair Witch Project. After the success of that first movie in 1999, the studios wanted a quick follow-up, and Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 was readied without the involvement of co-directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez. This helps to partially explain why Blair Witch 2, which abandoned the found-footage format, appears so stark a departure stylistically and tonally. As early as 2009, Myrick and Sanchez shared their intention to produce a third film, one that would be more in keeping with the spirit of the original.
