CinemaCon continues this week in Las Vegas, with major studios dropping big news and first looks at their upcoming film slates. Today during Lionsgate’s presentation, the studio revealed plans to partner with Blumhouse on a big project. It looks like we’re getting a new Blair Witch movie.

Lionsgate Chair Adam Fogelson and Blumhouse founder/CEO Jason Blum made the announcement today.

“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. There is no one better at this genre than the team at Blumhouse,” said Fogelson. “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. We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with them on this and other projects we look forward to revealing soon.”

Blum will also team with producer Roy Lee on the upcoming iteration of the horror film. Lee previously produced the 2016 version of Blair Witch.

“I’m very grateful to Adam and the team at Lionsgate for letting us play in their sandbox. I’m a huge admirer of The Blair Witch Project, which brought the idea of found footage horror to mainstream audiences and became a true cultural phenomenon,” said Blum. “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.”

The original film, The Blair Witch Project, released in 1999. Its “found footage” style horror helped make the film a worldwide blockbuster, bringing in over $248 million.
