Sequel to Evil Dead reboot already in the works?
With the reboot of The Evil Dead incoming, its director suggests that a sequel is already being worked on...
Following some very strong trailers, the Evil Dead remake is certainly shaping up to be a horror film very much worth looking forward to. Anticipation has been heightened further over the weekend following some very strong praise for the film after its screening at the SXSW festival. What's more, even before the film has been released, it looks as though sights have been set on the sequel. Here's what director Fede Alvarez had to say about it:
“I think it's going to depend on where we take it. Right now, we just got to write it. For me, it's if we manage to agree, but we're starting to build a story and figure out what kind of movie it's going to be and it depends what it is. It depends on the story we find because personally, I think it has to shock everybody. It has to go to a different place just like Army of Darkness did with Evil Dead 2. It has to do that switch that every Evil Dead movie did with the previous one.”
Alvarez added that “you have to create something different and completely new. And it's exciting for me because in a long time, this, the new one – the next one – is going to be completely new, fresh, 100% original, you bet. Because this one has so many ties to the first one that at the end of the day, being what it is, it's like a sound of the original movie. But the next one, it's not a remake of Evil Dead 2. It's something completely new and different. I'm so excited to see where that's going to go".
Even if it's at an early stage, it's a good sign that there's enough confidence in the Evil Dead remake that a sequel is being explored before the release of the film. More news on it when it's available.
Evil Dead is released on April 19th.
