Evil Dead Remake in the Works
07.12.11 by Chris
Is there nothing sacred in Hollywood anymore? First a Footloose remake. Now this?
Bruce Campbell, via his Twitter account, confirmed rumors that a fourth, "quasi-remake" Evil Dead is in the works.
Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.
The rumor mill got started when Dread Central first reported that long-time Sam Raimi editor Bob Murawski was heading to Detroit to start work on the fourth Evil Dead movie.
We can't decide whether the news of a fourth Evil Dead movie is either the most awesome news ever or the worst idea to come out of Hollywood since a Justin Bieber movie. It all rests on, of course, a great script that justifies bringing back one of the greatest cult classics of all time, and that Sam Rami is involved. According to one site, he'll be involved but not as a director (he's currently prepping for Oz: The Great and Powerful).
According to Bloody Disgusting, Fede Alvarez (Panic Attack!) will be directing for Raimi's production company.
So is a fourth (and possible remake) Evil Dead good news? Watch Alvarez's Panic Attack! and see if he's worthy to take the reins from Raimi.
