No official plot yet.
- The project is still in the talking stages, as original creators Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez are interested in returning to the films, but it's all up to Lionsgate, who owns the rights.
- Currently, Eduardo Sánchez revealed that there is no first-person narrative in the story, but that may change somewhere down the line.
- Co-creator Eduardo Sánchez was intereviewed recently where he revealed that this sequel would ignore the previous installment, saying: "I actually liked the sequel but at the same time it exists in a world outside of the movie. So if we want to do a sequel to 'Blair Witch Project,' we have to stay in that world, which 'Book of Shadows' didn't stay in that world. 'Book of Shadows' created a different world. It's like if the sequel to 'Jaws' started with shots of people lined up to see 'Jaws' in the movie theater. For 'Book of Shadows' it worked in a certain way but to me my biggest gripe with Artisan was you shouldn't have called it 'Blair Witch 2.' It would've been fine to call it Blair Witch Chronicles. It wasn't really a sequel to our movie. so it would be a direct sequel to our film living in that mythology of Burkittsville, being possessed, haunted by something."
- It's said that original actors Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams will have small roles in this film.
- Writers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez have said that the film would ignore the previous sequel and take place shortly after the events of the first film.
- Original actors Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams may have brief cameo appearances in one form or another.
- It's said that the film would rely less on characters speaking directly to the camera, and more on something called "mixed first-person".
- The original script was said to be a prequel set in 1786 where the Blair Witch legend originated from. The premise was written as follows: "This film chronicles the events that led to the township of Blair driving an accused witch named Elizabeth Kedward into the woods, and the subsequent hauntings that plaqued the town for decades after her supposed death."
- A script was written and sent to Lionsgate (who owns the rights) back in 2004, with hopes of it going into production, but it never happened.
- This project has been in talks for almost a decade.
