Since fans and critics everywhere have all but universally declared Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake even Eviler and Deader than the original – not to mention pulled in a tidy $26 million for the studio over the past weekend – it comes as no surprise whatsoever that talk of a sequel, or even a whole new franchise is in the air.
Alvarez and original Evil Dead trilogy star/J.R “Bob” Dobbs avatar Bruce Campbell recently sat down with IGN and rapped about the future of the Evil Dead series. With any luck, we’ll have both a second installment of Alvarez’s Evil Dead – AND Army Of Darkness 2 to look forward to…not to mention a possible crossover between the respective fictional universes.
Let’s give ’em a listen, shall we?
In the meantime, I’ve yet to encounter anyone who has anything negative to say about the new Evil Dead. I haven’t been fortunate enough to see it, but I hope to remedy this soon.
Evil Dead is now playing at theaters nationwide.
