Just this headline alone makes me squeal with delight. I adore the Evil Dead franchise and I have long held a crush on Bruce Campbell. So let’s just say I’m excited that Dread Central is reporting that the next Evil Dead film is gearing up for production.
According to the site, long-time Sam Raimi editor Bob Murawski (Army of Darkness; Spider-man, Drag me to Hell) has headed to Detroit to begin work on the fourth entry into the series of films, which will, fortunately, “a small indie thing like the first two.”
Now this is separate, as I understand it, from the remake of Evil Dead that’s being made, too. So it’s a little confusing.
I’m honestly not feeling too excited about a big budget remake of the first film, or ANY of the films, though.
