“Blair Witch Project” director Eduardo Sanchez is set to helm the sasquatch thriller “Exists” for Haxan Films and Amber Entertainment reports Variety.
Jamie Nash and Sanchez penned the script about a group of twentysomethings who take a trip to a cabin deep in the wooded wilderness and are methodically hunted by a Bigfoot-like beast.
Sanchez says it’s the first in a trilogy exploring and reinventing the Bigfoot myth. Robin Cowie, Gregg Hale, Andy Jenkins, Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky are producing.
Weta Workshop and Spectral Motion are collaborating on the design and build of the monster. Shooting kicks off just outside Austin, Texas in October.
