With an Evil Dead’ TV series on the way starring Bruce Campbell, one might wonder what is happening with ‘Evil Dead 2‘? If you were to ask the star who played Mia, Jane Levy (‘Suburgatory’, ‘Fun Size’), you might just end up disappointed.
While this could be a case of an actress not being kept in the loop of a film that isn’t directly on the horizon, it could be the case where it’s a film that just isn’t going to happen. Here’s what Levy had to say about her involvement in ‘Evil Dead 2’:
“I don’t think they’re gonna make it. I mean, they’re always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they’re making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs] I think they just like exciting their fans and confusing them. I honestly don’t know, but it doesn’t seem like there’s going to be an EVIL DEAD 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it.”
She didn’t at all say she wouldn’t be interested in reprising the role of Mia but she didn’t sound confident about it either. Of course, with all of the back and fourth about ‘Evil Dead 2’ and ‘Army of Darkness 2‘ last year, I don’t think anyone should be too surprised about that. While I still hold hope that somehow the television show with Campbell could play off of a movie with Levy, I’m not about to hold my breath. Previously, writer and director Fede Alvarez had said that “Evil Dead 2 is something [he] definitely want to do at some point” however there has never been an apparent urgency to get the project moving forward.
How about you fellow ‘Evil Dead’ fans? Do you think we’ve seen the last of Levy as Mia or is a return to the world of the ‘Evil Dead’ in her future? Will we ever see Ash and Mia share some actual screen time fighting against the Deadites and other forces of the Necronomicon?
