It has been over seven years since Sam Raimi revealed he’d remake The Evil Dead instead of allowing New Line Cinema to make their wildly original/demanded Freddy vs Jason vs Ash. Now, producer Robert Tapert is telling website Freep that Ghost House Pictures is still developing a modern take on the film that tells the tale of a group of friends who go to a cabin in the woods, where they find an unspeakable evil lurking in the forest. “It’s possible; we’re looking at a script this month,” Tapert said. “What’s interesting about ‘Evil Dead’ is very few people saw it in the format we made it for, which is for the theater. … I think Sam wants to embrace the ultimate experience in grueling terror and see it remade for a proper theatrical experience.” The film marked the birth of horror star Ash (Bruce Campbell), who rocks a chainsaw in the place of one of his hands (which happens in the sequel).
