Lionsgate UK announced today that highly anticipated horror Blair Witch will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on September 15th 2016. Previously titled “The Woods”, Lionsgate surprised horror audiences at Comic-Con by instead announcing Blair Witch, the sequel to The Blair Witch Project.

Going back to its found footage roots, it’s been 20 years since James’s sister and her two friends vanished into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland while researching the legend of the Blair Witch, leaving a trail of theories and suspicions in their wake. Blair Witch documents James (James Allen McCune) and his friends Peter (Brandon Scott), Ashley (Corbin Reid) and film student Lisa (Callie Hernandez) venturing into the same woods each with a camera to uncover the mysteries surrounding the 1999 disappearances. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals Lane (Wes Robinson) and Talia (Valorie Curry) offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods. But as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realise the terrifying legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

Blair Witch is helmed by director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest, V/H/S, V/H/S/2), who has assembled an accomplished behind-the-scenes team that includes screenwriter and longtime collaborator Simon Barrett (You’re Next, The Guest, V/H/S, V/H/S/2); Producers Roy Lee (The Ring, The Strangers, The Grudge), Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious), Keith Calder, P.G.A. (You’re Next, The Guest, Anomalisa), and Jess Calder, P.G.A. (You’re Next, The Guest, The Devil’s Candy), And Executive Producers Jenny Hinkey, Daniel Myrick (Director/Writer, The Blair Witch Project), Eduardo Sanchez (Director/Writer, The Blair Witch Project) And Gregg Hale (Producer, The Blair Witch Project).
