Last night got some extra story details on the Ghost House/Mandate Pictures and Sony/FilmDistrict Evil Dead remake which starts filming in New Zealand in March. Now the studio has announced the film’s official release date…
… April 12, 2013.
That’s actually not so bad when you consider the fact that they have yet to shoot the thing. There will be plenty of time for post-production and it’s not like they’d release it during awards season anyway. Just be glad it’s not getting dumped in January.
Fede Alvarez directs from his own screenplay co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Revisions were done by Oscar-winner Diablo Cody. The story centers on five friends holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead with a demonic force unleashed possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival.
