Time to once again ask the question, are you not scared enough? Lionsgate and Blumhouse are officially developing and producing a new Blair Witch Project movie 25 years after the original horror movie hit theaters, the companies announced at CinemaCon April 10. The original Blair Witch Project starred Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams, and Joshua Leonard as three film students who vanish in 1994 after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary about a local myth, known as the Blair Witch, leaving behind their footage. After grossing $248 million at the box office, it spawned a 2000 sequel Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, as well as a 2016 reboot, simply titled Blair Witch.

The rest of the spooky details of the upcoming Blair Witch Project movie will have to wait, as the casting and plot have not been announced yet. It remains unclear if the original stars, writers, and directors will be involved in the new movie. Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blum expressed his admiration for The Blair Witch Project, stating that it brought the idea of found footage horror to mainstream audiences and became a true cultural phenomenon. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chair, Adam Fogelson, expressed excitement about reintroducing this horror classic to a new generation through the upcoming movie.
