‘Blair Witch’ Director Wants To Shoot Film In Abandoned Frederick Mall

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A horror movie director wants to shoot a film in an abandoned mall in Frederick.

Director Eduardo Sanchez lives in Urbana and made Burkittsville famous with “The Blair Witch Project” in 1999. He tells The Frederick News-Post that he’s developing a screenplay set in the cavernous, empty Frederick Towne Mall.

Cal Glorioso, director of the Frederick Film Office, is trying to negotiate a deal between Sanchez and Rockwood Capital, which owns the property and is trying to redevelop it.

Wal-Mart is eyeing the property, and the mall could be torn down soon. Sanchez says the mall is part of Frederick’s history, and it would be a shame not to use it before it’s destroyed.

Sanchez says he would probably need a few weeks to shoot the movie.
