Petition Lionsgate for an Extended Version of "The Blair Witch Project"

[UPDATE 3/1/2017] Eduardo Sánchez Requested We Re-Launch the Petition for a Second Round of Signatures. If You Haven’t Signed, Now Is Your Chance!

The filming of The Blair Witch Project generated over 19 hours of usable footage. This raw footage was edited down to the 90-minute theatrical version we all know today. For diehard fans, the coveted 19 plus hours of unseen footage is the holy grail of Blair Witch lore.

On the latest episode of our Found Footage Files podcast [written transcript] we interviewed Eduardo Sánchez, co-creator of The Blair Witch Project (1999) and executive producer of the much-anticipated sequel, Blair Witch (2016)We’re excited to report that Sánchez is eager to create an extended version of The Blair Witch Project (akin to the original pre-theatrical cuts) using the untapped raw footage from the original 1999 film:

In a couple of weeks I could probably take the original movie and edit a longer version. The fans are like ‘everybody wants to see it’ . . . it would be cool to do, honestly. I wouldn’t hesitate to do that if Lionsgate Films hired me. I think it would a lot of fun.
aaa
Start a petition . . . if I can get enough interest from the fans, I can bring it to Lionsgate Films’ attention.”

This official petition to Lionsgate Films is the joint effort of Eduardo Sánchez and the Blair Witch fan community. The success of this project depends on the worldwide support of fans and the film industry. Here’s how you can help:
