Fede Alvarez, who resurrected Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead, has sold Machina, a sci-fi action project to MRC, reports THR.

Logline details are being kept under wraps and locked in the basement of a cabin in the woods, they joke.

It is known, however, that Alvarez will co-write the script with his partner Rodo Sayagues.

Alvarez is also attached to direct.

Alvarez is the South American director who caught the town’s attention with the hot short “Panic Attack,” which featured giant robots attacking Montevideo, Paraguay.
