The cast of The Blair Witch Project released a joint statement detailing what they would like to see from Lionsgate in light of the recently announced news of a Blair Witch reboot. Joshua Leonard, Michael C. Williams, and Rei Hance (formerly Heather Donahue), who starred in the original film back in 1999, released an open letter to the company via Instagram on April 20, 2024, just nine days after a post from Leonard went viral. MovieWeb was first to report on Leonard's post, in which he said, "It’s 25 years of disrespect from the folks who’ve pocketed the lion’s share (pun intended) of the profits from OUR work, and that feels both icky and classless."
