Dread Central is reporting that the Evil Dead Franchise is alive and well on it’s way to getting a fourth movie in the series produced.
Dread Central has it on good authority from a very reliable source that long-time Sam Raimi editor Bob Murawski (Army of Darkness; Spider-man, Drag me to Hell) has packed up and headed out to Detroit to begin work on the long talked about fourth entry into the Evil Dead franchise, which will be “a small indie thing like the first two.”
According to Bruce Campbell‘s official website, BruceCampbell.com, Bruce officially joined Twitter over the weekend (follow @GroovyBruce). On his Twitter site Bruce was questioned by a fan who stated, “I won’t believe in a new Evil Dead film until I see it. Or at least not until @GroovyBruce tells me to believe in it,” to which Campbell responded, “Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.” More as it comes.
So there it is, the gears are turning on Evil Dead production. Can they capture the manic horror of the series once again? We all know that until there is film in the can and a distribution deal with ink drying that any movie can stall at any stage of production. As news comes in on this NerdBastards will keep you informed. Hopefully this is more than just some “Pillow Talk Baby.”
Until next time: Klaatu – Barada – Nikto Baby!
