It has been announced by Lionsgate film chair Adam Fogelson and Jason Blum of horror production studio Blumhouse that another instalment of the cult classic horror movie series is underway.

Beginning with the hugely successful 1999 film The Blair Witch Project, the franchise has already seen two sequels – one in 2000 and a second in 2016. Now, a fourth film is in the works, with 2016’s Blair Witch director Roy Lee to return.

The revival is part of a multi film deal between Lionsgate and Blumhouse, which is set to reimagine some of the former’s horror classics.

Fogelson and Blum announced the news (via The Hollywood Reporter) at Lionsgate’s CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas on Wednesday (April 10), with Fogelson saying: “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.”

He continued: “There is no one better at this genre than the team at Blumhouse. 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.”

Blum weighed in, talking about the impact which the The Blair Witch Project had on his career, paving the way for his 2007 supernatural horror, Paranormal Activity: “I don’t think there would have been a Paranormal Activity had there not first been a Blair Witch, so this feels like a truly special opportunity and I’m excited to see where it leads.”

In other news, Margot Robbie’s production company LuckyChap announced at CinemaCon that they will produce a live-action feature film based on the board game Monopoly.
