Kudos to Lionsgate for actually keeping a secret in this day and age.

At the SDCC screening for Adam Wingard’s The Woods on Friday night, it was revealed that the movie is actually a sequel hidden behind a working title. It is now known simply as Blair Witch.

A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

Blair Witch is slated for release on September 16th, but you can view the trailer, poster and an image from the film below.
