Director Fede Alvarez has sold a top secret sci-fi project

So EVIL DEAD turned out to be, well, not so bad. I thought it was far from the "disaster" we were expecting. Director Fede Alvarez took a beloved horror classic and turned it into something of his own without disrespecting what audiences had loved about the original.

If you liked what you saw there, it seems that Alvarez has sold his top secret sci-fi project to MRC. Unforunately, we can't tell you anything about it since it is...top secret.

Alvarez will co-write the script with his partner Rodo Sayagues.

Did you guys ever see the short film PANIC ATTACK that Alvarez made that caused all the buzz surrounding him? If not, I've included it below. The film shows an attack of giant robots on Uruguay. It's like CLOVERFIELD, PACIFIC RIM, and a bunch of explosions.

That all said, what was your opinion of Alvarez's take on EVIL DEAD? Are you looking forward to seeing what more he can do with sci-fi?

Sick if the top secret project is that short film I would loveeee to see that as a movie. And Evil Dead was amazing but what ever happen to the unrated DVD we were suppose to get. Maybe it'll come out later ?

Liked Evil Dead quite a bit, and more than that, I really respected and dug everything this guy had to say leading up to the movie's release. I'll definitely be interested in whatever he does next.

After watching Raimi's ED & ED2, I really liked how Alvarez took the basic elements of the original 2 films and put much more of a serious horror spin on it. Big thumbs up, really enjoyed it. Not scary like "Martyrs" scary, but still pretty frightening.

Up until last week, I had never seen the original.

Got the 2013 Evil Dead out on DVD last week and loved it, so I would be interested to see what Alvarez does next.

After watching the remake, my buddy suggested watching the original (since I mentioned I had never seen it back in the day) and we ended up watching Raimi's ED & ED2. Way more of a comedy than a horror. :)

I loved the new evil dead!

I'm actually watching right now for my third time.. So far he has showed that he is very talented and I'm looking forward to see what he does next... As long as at least one of his next projects is another evil dead.
