McFarlane Toys Signs Exclusive Deal with Artisan
Blair Witch Figures Top the List of Long-Term License
June 9, 2000
McFarlane Toys has signed an exclusive deal with Artisan Entertainment for first right of refusal on all toy licenses through early 2003.
Though specific details of the partnership remain hush-hush, word has it that Artisan is interested in a McFarlane-style take on the ever-elusive witch from The Blair Witch Project.
Blair Witch 2 is currently filming, directed by renowned documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger. Blair Witch 3 will be written directed and produced by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez (creators of the original film) and will be a prequel to the original.
