Paranormal Activity Inspires Blair Witch 3

After idly watching Paranormal Activity become the new movie people talk about when they talk about enormously successful low-budget movies, the guys behind The Blair Witch Project have decided to get the Handycam out of storage. Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick are currently pitching a script for Blair Witch 3 to Lionsgate, which owns the film’s rights. Their script picks up after the first movie with the original cast members playing small roles. Blair Witch 2, which neither was involved with, is ignored.

“I wouldn’t be completely honest with you if I said I wasn’t jealous of Paranormal Activity,” Sánchez told The Toronto Star. “I’m happy for the guy … but at the same time, there’s the feeling that, man, I could have done this. It would have been different and might not have been as good. But I know how to make these films. To me it’s like, man, maybe I should go back and kind of milk this one more time.”

Sign him up Lionsgate. How can you say no to the man responsible for one of the most iconic snot scenes in cinema history?
