UPDATED: BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: New Evil Dead Film Actually Gearing Up for Production! | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
At the risk of posting yet another false start...this one sounds like it may be real. I still think Raimi needs to get the taste of Spiderman out of his mouth, and although it was fun, looking back on it now DocNaysay may have been a little more right about Drag Me To Hell then we all wanted to admit...but that goat scene is still the ****!When it comes to anything regarding the next Evil Dead flick, there's been so much said that we never know just what is or is not concrete anymore. However, an interesting and solid little tidbit has fallen right into our laps.
Dread Central has it on good authority from a very reliable source that long-time Sam Raimi editor Bob Murawski (Army of Darkness; Spider-man, Drag me to Hell) has packed up and headed out to Detroit to begin work on the long talked about fourth entry into the Evil Dead franchise, which will be "a small indie thing like the first two."
We'll get you more details as they come, but it looks like this IS happening. Will it be the fourth in the series? Will it be a remake? Stay tuned. News is coming.
According to Bruce Campbell's official website, BruceCampbell.com, Bruce officially joined Twitter over the weekend (follow @GroovyBruce). On his Twitter site Bruce was questioned by a fan who stated, "I won't believe in a new Evil Dead film until I see it. Or at least not until @GroovyBruce tells me to believe in it," to which Campbell responded, "Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell." More as it comes.
Federico Alvarez to Direct THE EVIL DEAD Reboot
[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dadPWhEhVk&feature=player_embedded"]YouTube - ‪Ataque de Pánico! (Panic Attack!) 2009‬‏[/nomedia]If you’re Bruce Campbell or Sam Raimi, you must live in constant dread of being asked about the future of The Evil Dead franchise. There hasn’t been a new entry in the series for 19 years (unless you count the hilarious stage musical) and yet the franchise is currently more popular than ever. Today the internet is abuzz because Bruce Campbell tweeted that the long discussed Evil Dead remake will finally be kicking off in the next few months. Sam Raimi is currently in his old stomping grounds of Detroit finding a cast of fresh faces to be possessed and torn to bits. But while Raimi will be supervising the project through his company Ghost House Pictures, his commitment to Oz, The Great And Powerful will keep him out of the director’s chair. However, we’ve recently learned who will be directing the Evil Dead reboot for Raimi and it’s Uruguay-native Federico Alvarez. Don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard the name because he hasn’t directed a feature yet. We do have a short film of his for your viewing pleasure though and the guy just might have the talent it takes to make Deadites walk again. Hit the jump for more.
Federico Alvarez might not have been on many horror fans’ radar before Bloody Disgusting’s report today that he will be directing the Evil Dead remake, but he has been making of a name for himself on the festival circuit with some impressive genre-flavored short films. Here’s Alvarez’s 2009 sci-fi short Panic Attack that caught the attention of Hollywood. It’s only 5 minutes long, but it’s an apocalyptic action scene worthy of blockbuster comparisons.
It’s a simple short, but stylish, impressive, and proof that Alvarez has a knack for working with the complicated and low-budgeted digital effects that will inevitably be a part of the Evil Dead remake. This movie could be decent even if it’s disappointing that the long awaited new Evil Dead film will just be the latest classic horror reboot rather than a new original entry in the franchise. While any sort of Evil Dead sequel this far down the line would probably be a disappointment, it is sad to know that Raimi and possibly Campbell won’t be returning to the chainsaw one last time (Drag Me To Hell did prove that Raimi’s still got a knack at generating jump scares and blood-drenched laughs after all). A remake is probably as close as we’re ever going to get to a new Evil Dead movie, so at least it’s nice to know that Raimi will be supervising the production in some way and a talented newcomer has been hired to make his mark with the franchise that put Raimi on the path to becoming on of Hollywood’s biggest directors. Hopefully, this reboot captures a little of the Evil Dead magic even if digital sheen will likely replace the latex and karo syrup joys of the original.
