'The Blair Witch Project' seems like such a long time ago for co-director Eduardo Sanchez. Can he ever get back to such horror heights? Possibly by putting 'The Blair Witch Project 3' into development he may get back on track, in the meantime however he is dealing with 'The Possession'. The new supernatural tale that he co-wrote with Jamie Nash is currently in pre-production and he has just nabbed himself two new cast members in the form of actors Johnny Lewis and Alexandra Holden (below). 'Possession explores the thin line between demonic possession and psychosis; it starts off as a simple horror film about things that go bump in the night but slowly turns into a thriller about the evil power that exists inside one troubled young woman. The film centers on a young newlywed couple that falls prey to a demonic spirit. ' »

Johnny Lewis (The Runaways) and Alexandra Holden (Post Grad) have signed on to star in the indie thriller Possession. The film was written by Eduardo Sanchez who will also direct. If Sanchez’s name doesn’t ring an immediate bell, chances are you’ve probably seen at least one of his films – 1999’s “found footage” hit The Blair Witch Project, which he co-wrote/co-directed alongside Daniel Myrick. According to Heat Vision, Possession tells the story of a “young newlywed couple that falls prey to a demonic spirit.” Lewis is set to play the groom while Holden will make a turn as the bride’s sister/maid of honor. The film is being produced by Haxan Films whose claim-to-fame (like Sanchez’s) is the aforementioned The Blair Witch Project. »
