Recently Fede Alvarez tweeted that depending who ends up winning the World Cup could indicate if we’ll see a sequel to the ‘Evil Dead’ remake and now it sounds like one will happen no matter who wins! It isn’t clear from his new statement as to when a sequel will happen, but Alvarez wants to do one at some point.
The news came out recently when Alvarez was being interviewed in anticipation with his upcoming film ‘The Girl in The Spider’s Web’ when the potential of a sequel came up:
“Making my Evil Dead was an amazing experience, it was my first film. So, going back at some point will be a possibility. I mean, I’m really good friends with all those guys, with Bruce, and Sam, and Rob (Tapert, who has produced all the Evil Dead movies). So, we always chat about it. The good news — and I think that’s what sometimes people don’t understand — is, none of those guys will make any of these movies just because they can, just because it’s good business. They will only make it if they believe they have some good story to tell. A lot of people say that in this industry, but most of the time it’s not true. With those guys, all of us involved in those movies, we will just make them if we believe there’s a story that has to be told, and is awesome, and is great, and we believe that it will be better than anything that will be done before in that world. [When] we find that story, when we all agree on what it is, it will probably happen.”
While I’m all for Alvarez only wanting to do this with a solid story and not to cash in, the reboot did happen in 2013, so one can only hope that an idea strikes soon. I’m pretty sure fans of his work felt that with ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ airing on STARZ that a sequel was just on hold until the series ended, but now it looks like those involved just haven’t had the right idea yet.
Are you down with Fede Alvarez making an ‘Evil Dead 2’? Did you enjoy the direction his soft reboot of the franchise took? Without ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ do you think that the retired Bruce Campbell might rethink his decision to have a full crossover with this franchise? Could other cast members of ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ appear in the films? Share your thoughts below!
