I wanted to put the cap on POV news this week with Chronicle, but when it comes to a project being directed by Eduardo Sanchez, I think I can make room for one more. The guy hasn't delivered one widely successful film since The Blair Witch Project back in 1999, but that one alone makes any other project he gets his hands on instantly intriguing and that's why I'll be keeping a close eye on Possession. According to Variety, that'll be Sanchez's next venture behind the lens and it actually doesn't stray too far from the concept that brought him all the notoriety to begin with.

Sanchez co-wrote the script with Jamie Nash and it's about "the thin line between demonic possession and psychosis, 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." Amber Entertainment and Haxan Films are the companies behind this one. Haxan actually produced Blair Witch way back when, so perhaps they're hoping lightening can strike twice. The folks over there better keep their fingers crossed tight because they also backed Sanchez's critical flop, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (which Sanchez only executive produced) and the widely unnoticed Altered and Seventh Moon.
