While we patiently await the release of Image Entertainment’s Lovely Molly, director Eduardo Sanchez begins the hunt for his next genre project.

The Bigfoot found-footage film Exists has locked its cast ahead of its Monday start of production for Haxan Films and Amber Entertainment.

Variety reports that thesps Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn and Denise Williamson go to work next week at Spiderwood Studios in Elgin, Tex. with Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) directing from a Jamie Nash script.

Brian Steele (Hellboy) has been set since last year to play the monster.

‘Exists’ is a horror-thriller that chronicles a group of friends who set out into a remote Texas woods for a weekend of fun and are stalked and hunted by Bigfoot.

It’s the second film produced under a multi-picture collaboration between Haxan and Amber following Lovely Molly, which bowed at the Midnight Madness lineup at Toronto and SXSW and is being released by Image Entertainment on May 18. Producers are Robin Cowie, Jane Fleming, Andy Jenkins and Mark Ordesky with Gregg Hale and Reed Frerichs exec producing.
