There was a big announcement at the 3rd annual "Boggy Creek Festival" in Fouke.

The Boggy Creek Monster will be featured in the next film in the Small Town Monsters, cryptid-documentary series. The film is titled Boggy Creek Monster and will focus on the history of Bigfoot sightings in and around the community of Fouke, Ark., that inspired one of the most successful independent films ever made, Legend of Boggy Creek. Boggy Creek Monster is a Small Town Monsters production in association with cryptid researcher, author, musician, journalist, and television personality, Lyle Blackburn.

The film is slated to go before the cameras next April with an eye toward release in late 2016. A Kickstarter campaign will launch in February to fund the production of the film. Among the rewards for backing the Boggy Creek film will be access to the upcoming Small Town Monsters’ release titled, Beast of Whitehall, a month before its official release.

Boggy Creek Monster will be directed by Seth Breedlove, and produced by Brandon Dalo and Lyle Blackburn who is serving as a consultant on the film. Blackburn will also appear on camera. Cinematographer, Zac Palmisano, a Full Sail graduate with previous experience in filmmaking, is set as cinematographer. This will be the third in the series, following Minerva Monster and Beast of Whitehall. More information will be available about the crowd funding campaign and production of the film this January.

Beast of Whitehall is set for official release next April.
