BLAIR WITCH Director Bringing Bigfoot To Life
Bigfoot will soon be captured on film striding across the hills and hidden places of America and given that it's Blair Witch Project director Eduardo Sanchez who will be capturing the beast on camera I think it's safe to say that this iteration of the hairy beast will not be the friendliest of the lot.
HAXAN FILMS AND AMBER ENTERTAINMENT
TO START PRODUCTION ON "EXISTS" APRIL 9, 2012
WITH EDUARDO SANCHEZ DIRECTING
Los Angeles, CA (April 5, 2012) - Haxan Films and Amber Entertainment announced today they will start production on Exists on April 9th at Spiderwood Studios in Elgin, TX with Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly) directing.
Produced by Robin Cowie, Jane Fleming, Andy Jenkins and Mark Ordesky. The screenplay is written by Jamie Nash. The ensemble cast includes Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn and Denise Williamson. Brian Steele (Predators, Hellboy), the well-known "suit actor" will play Bigfoot. The film's Executive Producers are Gregg Hale and Reed Frerichs.
Exists is Sanchez's first foray into found footage since The Blair Witch Project. The film is a horror-thriller that chronicles a group of friends who set out into a remote Texas woods for a weekend of fun and are stalked and hunted by Bigfoot.
This is the second film produced under a multi-picture collaboration between Haxan Films (Blair Witch Project) and Amber Entertainment (The Frozen Ground). The first, Lovely Molly garnered critical acclaim after bows at the Midnight Madness lineup at Toronto and SXSW and is being released by Image Entertainment on May 18th.
