Director Fede Alvarez already working on a script for Evil Dead 2 and has talked to Sam Raimi about Evil Dead 4

Evil Dead

Excitement for Fede Alvarez's EVIL DEAD has been steadily growing week to week and the film receieved an enthusiastic response at its world premiere at SXSW on Friday. I still think the remake/reboot isn't going to win everyone over, but I'm personally OK with it and can't wait to see the film.

Collider spoke to Alvarez recently and asked him if there were plans for an EVIL DEAD 2. While a script is in the works it sounds like it is still very early on and Fede Alvarez isn't officially signed on quite yet:

I think it's going to depend on where we take it. Right now, we just to to write it. For me, it's if we manage to agree, but we're just starting to build a story and figure out what kind of movie it's going to be, and it depends on 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 also goes on to say that he doesn't want the EVIL DEAD 2 to be a remake of Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD 2 and what that means for the sequel:

Well, right now 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 this 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.

Collider also got a chance to ask Fede Alvarez if Sam Raimi has started work on the script for the recently announced EVIL DEAD 4 and they had this exchange:

Has Sam Raimi talked to you because he’s writing Evil Dead 4 now—

ALVAREZ: He’s not!  He’s not. 

He’s not writing it?

ALVAREZ: He wants to do it.  I can tell you that because we’ve talked about it.  He wants to try and find the best movie to do it.  He has a story, he pitched it to me about what he wants to do with Bruce and Ash on Evil Dead 4.  It’s definitely something he wants to do.  At the end of the day, bringing this saga back to life is the best way to do it.  And look, they don’t call him “The Master” just because.

Lots of DEAD in our future boys and girls and I couldn't be happier. EVIL DEAD is in theaters April 5, 2013.

Am I the only one in the fucking TWILIGHT ZONE

Why is no one commenting on the fact that if they start working on an EVIL DEAD 2 AND 4 (for the Original trilogy) that the general public would be fucking baffled as to why these films exist simultaneously without being related.

I thought the same thing, however, X-Men is probably going to do the same thing. With the First Class sequel coming out next year, and word of X-Men 4 to be produced soon.

I am a MEGA evil dead fan - I have the toys, movies, book of the dead editions, I have a limited army of darkness statue (of the poster) etc. so I love the evil deads and I have to say this remake looks very promising actually.
sometimes the impossible happens, The Thing (carpenters) and Night of the Living Dead (tony todd) come to mind, where the remake was really good! (actually the Thing is better!). So maybe it will be good! It wont be better of course but Im up for a new darker version.

Again, if it sucks, ill bash the shit out of it - but for now I have to give it a chance based on what I have seen.

I can't say I'm a fan of remakes, but EVIL DEAD looks promising! I look forward to seeing a horror movie on the big screen, again. It seems like there hasn't been a decent scary movie out in a bit.

Well obviously "Evil Dead 4" will be called 'Army of Darkness 2' (or something along those lines). IF it ever gets made. I hope Raimi will make it.

Supposing that the new Evil Dead is a hit, for Evil Dead 2, go with something different. Extra tidbit: I'd really love to see the continuation of Ash after what happened to him in Army of Darkness's alternate ending.

I just hope the remake is good and is successful before we start talking about a sequel. I remember all the hype around Green Lantern and how they were saying we were going to get a trilogy. Now for us Green Lantern fans, like me, we will be lucky to get one more sequel from the character.

I think this might take the same route as Dredd. Great first film, but not good enough for a proper sequel.

off topic - i liked green lantern also. i think ppl got pissed off for no reason - hes on Oa, he gets the ring, he fights paralax - what the fuck else you want? I also LOVED DREDD - i have seen it about 10 times already!!!

Yeah lets make a good Evil dead BEFORE we start talking about the sequel.

Yeah. I just don't understand what all the hate is about and where it all comes from. I think they gave us more than enough for an origins film with Green Lantern.

I, too, loved Green Lantern. Reynolds is perfect for the role!

Evil dead 2 a sequel to the remake, Evil Dead 4 a sequel to Army of Darkness both being talked about at the same time....

I don't give 2 shits of a fuck anymore, MAKE EM BOTH! But please release 1 of them around Halloween, give Paranormal some competition so they dont keep spewing out crap year after year.

amen to that. paranormal inactivity is fucking garbage - ENOUGH already - and people complained about the saw sequels - at least they were movies in stead of youtube videos.

Remake looks like crap.

It is all hype and no payoff. It will be a ton of horrible CGI and torture porn, the original series worked so well because it didn't take itself seriously. It was horror humor. Here it can probably be called Hostile with Possessions.

Did you see it? Because those who have are giving it some positive feedback.

And, by the way, do you hate every movie, or just the ones that draw interest or praise? It seems like you're constantly associated with negative comments about movies that have hype around them or a huge fan base.

this looks like the same movie just darker - i hear you though, but i think the movie has potential to be good.
