Update: We can confirm Diablo Cody is secretly involved with the screenplay. Story soon.
Just yesterday we broke the news exclusively that short film director Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez) would be getting behind the camera for a reboot of Sam Raimi’s cult classic The Evil Dead. We went scoop hunting on the heels of Dread Central’s tip-off that Raimi was flying to Detroit to cast up the long-awaited fourth Evil Dead.
Now that the dust has settled, here’s what remains: We exclusively learned that the script for the remake is still being retooled and is undergoing rewrites. They’re not even close to casting yet. As of this writing Bruce Campbell will NOT star, but he could cameo (maybe the down-and-out “Ash” will pass the torch on to a younger S-Mart employee?)
The summary? I’ll believe there’s a new Evil Dead in theaters when I’m watching it with my own two eyes. And always remember: Shop smart, shop S-Mart.
