Daniel Myrick, one of the creators behind the 1999 film "The Blair Witch Project," recently revealed that he has considered continuing the series in a way that mimics how they are done in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a recent interview with NME, the director discussed the legacy of the groundbreaking movie. The story followed three teenagers who went deep into the woods to find out if there was any truth to the legend of the Blair Witch. Filmed with a budget of approximately $20k, "The Blair Witch Project" popularized the found footage style of filmmaking that many horror films utilize today.

Following the popularity of the movie, a 2000 sequel was created called "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2," which fans and Myrick widely disregard. It is said that initially, the studio passed on Myrick and co-writer Eduardo Sánchez making a sequel. Then, years later in 2016, another reboot was done under the supervision of writer Simon Barrett and director Adam Wingard.

However, Myrick believes there is a new path that can be forged in the Blair Witch universe in terms of moving forward.

"Oh, we've had tons of ideas," he revealed to NME, adding, "We even pitched them to Lionsgate."

Continuing on that same train of thought, the writer said that he is "still holding out hope that they'll come back to the original guys and maybe entertain one of our ideas. I always thought the mythology we created was episodic."

Myrick then stated that he had always wanted to venture into an exploration of Elly Kedward, the 18th-century witch in the mythology. He also shared that he didn't believe all sequels had to be found footage in order to work in the universe, saying, "Go with the Marvel approach. You can tell all these stories within one universe. The audience base is there..."

As for right now, the filmmaker shared that he is working on a movie called "Skyman," which is said to be about a man who claims he saw a UFO in the desert as a child and subsequently becomes obsessed with it later in life.

"It's sort of presented like a documentary. We're in post now and it should be finished by August," he concluded.
