Here’s some groovy news out of the San Diego Comic-Con!
Moments ago Sam Raimi revealed that he’s currently developing a television series based on his The Evil Dead franchise.
During the Hall H panel discussing The Last of Us adaptation, Raimi told the crowd that he and his brother Ivan, along with Bruce Campbell, are currently writing the “Evil Dead” series!
The Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead remake, which hit theaters in April of 2013, bowed well for Columbia Pictures earning close to $100M worldwide. Said remake is rumored to be the third sequel – following The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness – which would eventually tie into the original trilogy.
It’s unclear how this series works into the franchise’s future, although the idea of a series and new sequels gets me all tingly on the inside.
