Native Son Tries Hand at Television Writing

Sasquatch tries acting

Sasquatch, the legendary creature of the Northwest woods, is getting a movie break thanks to the enormous success of the movie thriller, "The Blair Witch Project."

Variety, the show business newspaper, says Sasquatch (a.k.a. Bigfoot) will be at the center of a feature-length spoof on "Blair Witch," with the working title "The Bigfoot Project." Filming had already begun.

In the story, three tourists get lost near the famous Hollywood sign, and encounter a Bigfoot monster. The ostracized runt of the Sasquatch family has turned into a bum, wandering the Southern California landscape. The tourist's bodies are later found, together with their video footage of the encounter, in scenes recalling "Blair Witch."
