FX shops team to bring creature to life
Eduardo Sanchez – the co-director of The Blair Witch Project – is jumping into Bigfoot lore with a planned film trilogy.
The director will helm Exists, a project he penned with his Seventh Moon scribe Jamie Nash.
WETA and Spectral Motion are teaming up to create Bigfoot (whoa!) and shooting is expected to begin this fall just outside of Austin, Texas. Sanchez says Exists will be the first film in a trilogy that explores and re-invents the Bigfoot myth and, as he says, make Bigfoot “scary again.”
Creature performer Brian Steele (Predators, Hellboy) will play the legendary monster.
Sanchez is currently in post-production on The Possession starring Johnny Lewis and Alexandra Holden.
