|"We've had our little successes and our big failures, but this ("Blair Witch") is the first film that's been sold. And it was a complete experiment.
"We wanted to go after ultimate realism, so we just gave the actors an outline and let them improv. We decided, all right, we're shooting this thing in real-time format, eight straight days in the woods. Let's set it up so we don't have to interact with the actors and just see what happens. Daniel and I would go home and sleep occasionally, but we were actually making the film 24 hours a day--we'd wake up at three in the morning, walk out in the woods and scare the hell out of them." --Eduardo Sanchez to Michael Atkinson in MOVIELINE, July 1999
|In response to Jan De Bont harrumphing, "I kind of feel sorry for the directors who did 'The Blair Witch Project'. Where do they go from here?": "He's got a point. Although I don't know if he should feel sorry. You know, what filmmaker in the world wouldn't trade positions with us? Especially him. They spent a lot of money on 'The Haunting' [De Bont's pic slaughtered by "Blair Witch"] and I don't think he had an idea of how to scare people at all. But, sure, we know the only way is down." --Sanchez quoted in EMPIRE, November 1999|
Chris Hemsworth as John Smith? Yes, please. We cast (or re-cast) celebs as their Disney character counterparts.
You'll be surprised by the names on these celebrities' birth certificates!
Are these men drinking from the fountain of youth? Because we sure want some.
You won't believe how cute these celebrities' furry friends are! We want to adopt a dog of our own now.
We all know what Hilary Duff and Miley Cyrus are up to...but what about their best friends?
