It’s a shame, and many fans will be disappointed but Raimi will only be producing the new addition to the Evil Dead series. The director will be..
Brett Ratner! Only kidding. Bloody Disgusting have unearthed who will step into Sam Rami’s shoes for the new installment in the Evil Dead franchise..
In an exclusive scoop, we’re told that Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez) is directing for Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures and Madnate. The remake was announced way back in 2004. No word on casting or if Bruce Campbell will return.
The site also reveal that Raimi will be on board as producer, and the movie will be a “quasi-remake”. I assume that means it will tell roughly the same story but not EXACTLY the same, and hope beyond hoe that Bruce Campbell will be involved. Alvarez has only previously directed the very impressive short film Panic Attack! back in 2009. Check it out below.
So what do you guys think of this news? Groovy?
