Sam Raimi Won't Direct New Evil Dead Flick, Find Out Who Will

It's a shame, and many fans will be disappointed but Raimi will only be producing the new addition to the Evil Dead series. The director will be..
Brett Ratner! Only kidding. Bloody Disgusting have unearthed who will step into Sam Rami's shoes for the new installment in the Evil Dead franchise..

In an exclusive scoop, we're told that Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez) is directing for Raimi's Ghost House Pictures and Madnate. The remake was announced way back in 2004. No word on casting or if Bruce Campbell will return.

The site also reveal that Raimi will be on board as producer, and the movie will be a "quasi-remake". I assume that means it will tell roughly the same story but not EXACTLY the same, and hope beyond hoe that Bruce Campbell will be involved. Alvarez has only previously directed the very impressive short film Panic Attack! back in 2009. Check it out.

Evil Dead Remake Synopsis Revealed
We weren't certain if this was going to be a loose follow up, or an outright remake of Sam Raimi's classic horror flick. But the following synopsis should leave no one in any doubt..
So we know this redo is going ahead with Sam Raimi's blessing and director Fede Alvarez at the helm. But will it be a carbon copy of Raimi's original or will we be seeing something new? Well the following synopsis posted by STYD is doing the rounds for the upcoming American Film Market and sounds very familiar indeed..


Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.






So, the same premise as the original then. But not quite. Because here is a bit more info on courtesy of Bloody Disgusting (via /Film) which adds a junkie sub plot and a few different details..


..The kids all head to the cabin in order to help one of their number kick a serious drug habit. The site says “the “new spin” is the motivation behind the trip, with the lead character taking his younger sister to the family’s cabin to help her kick her drug addiction. Without her drugs she becomes insane and difficult to control, which makes it impossible to see that she’s actually possessed.” And passages from the Book of the Dead, i.e. the spoken spells that awake the dead, are not played back via tape recording, but read by one of the young characters — someone who evidently has the ability to read ancient Sumerian, or whatever arcane language is written in the book.


Hmmm. Word is the original Ash Bruce Campbell will cameo but not as that character, in fact the Ash character is not supposed to make an appearance at all.

Well that makes 3 remakes on Evil Dead.  Evil Dead 2 was just another remake of Evil Dead 1 and not a sequel.  Army of Darkness sucked balls so hopefully this remake is kickass.

Shiloh Fernandez Lands Male Lead in EVIL DEAD Remake
 Variety is reporting that Red Riding Hood star Shiloh Fernandez has landed the much coveted role of the male lead in Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead. Plus, get a look at the first spine tingingly set photo.
nailbiter111 - 2/2/2012



Variety's Justin Kroll is reporting that Shiloh Fernandez will star in FilmDistrict and Mandate's "Evil Dead" reboot. The role was sought after by many young actors, but Shiloh came out on top in the end.

The film will be directed by Fede Alvarez who wrote the first screenplay. While Juno's Diablo Cody was also brought on board in order to fine tune the script.

Based on the information it seems safe to assume that the role is, David, the brother to the female lead, Mia. A role that Lily Collins just recently passed on and according to Variety has not been filled. Mia will be the Ash-like character in the movie. Although in this remake Mia will be suffering from a drug problem and her brother and his/her friends will bring her to a secluded cabin for an intervention. At the cabin another male friend will come across the "Book of the Dead", recite some of it, and of course all Hell breaks loose.

As I reported a month ago Movie Hole has read much of the script and has all the juicy details. If you'd like a to learn more click here.


Mia and David, estranged siblings who have recently lost their mother (Mia’s taking it the hardest being that she’s the one who spent most days at the hospital watching her mother deteriorate) have reunited, along with some old friends and his David’s fiancee, for an intervention at THAT old cabin. As reported by Bloody Disgusting this week, It’s here that the near rehabilitated Mia (who has apparently already been cast) will also toss the last of her drugs down the well and finally go cold Turkey.

A big storm sets in. Everyone heads to the cabin. The book of the dead is found, and arrogant Eric (one of the friends along for the trip) takes the most interest in transcribing passages from it. Always the dicks that bring the trouble, right? - Movie Hole

First Official Image Revealed From The EVIL DEAD Remake; Plus Description of Footage



Click Image to Enlarge



Before the footage was shown director Fede Alvarez insisted that hardly any of the images were computer generated. That description below comes courtesy of io9.com.

First, we saw the iconic cabin, which is introduced with the iconic Sam Raimi low-angle tracking shot. A group of new kids and Jane Levy push open the old cabin door, revealing leaves, dirt and a grubby cabin floor. Jane looks beat as hell and ready for her night of heroin withdraw (yes they are keeping the plot similar to the original). A trap door is discovered. A boy heads down the stairs and discovers THE NECRONOMICON! Sadly, we didn't get the money shot of the new book cover; all we saw was a book wrapped in black plastic, someone ripping into it and the familiar old pages. The character starts flipping through the Necronomicon, rubbing a pencil over the strange words. He recites the enchanted phrases. Jane lets out an insane high-pitched scream and then states, "We're all going to die tonight." This was already cut together pretty quickly; now things get even faster, so we're only getting flashes of the gore. I spot a girl in the shower cutting up the sides of her mouth, while one of her cabinmates screams, "What are you doing?" Another girl's arm looks like it's covered in boils, and she takes an electric carving knife to her bicep. Someone starts up a chainsaw (the crowd goes insane at this). Cut to another girl trapped in the woods, wrapped with branches. Yep, the raping tree is back. Jane returns with white eyes, white skin and a black tongue, which she sticks out, provocatively licking an exposed knife. Slowly the knife starts splitting her tongue in half. She's doing this right in front the boil armed girl's face.

Bruce Campbell On Why The EVIL DEAD Reins Were Handed Over To Fede Alvarez

There had been mutterings of Sam Raimi and co working on another Evil Dead movie for years, with both the director and actor Bruce Campbell - who played Ash in all three of Raimi's previous movies - sounding confident that something would happen eventually. But as time went by it seemed more and more unlikely that we would ever see a follow up to Army Of Darkness, and then talk turned to a reboot of the franchise - with Raimi and Campbell on board though surely? Well no, at least not in the capacity fans were expecting. A new director in Fede Alvarez was chosen, and Campbell revealed that he wouldn't be appearing in so much as a cameo - in fact teh character of Ash will not be a factor at all. So how and why did all of this come about? "The Chin" himself explains to Total Film..

“He [Alvarez] pitched a full-length story and we really liked it. He wrote a script and we kept liking it. It sort of grew on us like a wart.

“Plus, when you see the chances of making a sequel receding every year, like our hairlines, you realize maybe we should get a new punk in here with five new kids to torment.

“We can use our experience to help guide the filmmaker to come up with a new balls-out movie that will torment people for the rest of their lives. We think he did it!”


The latest poster for the movie certainly writes a big check that fans will be expecting to see cashed come Evil Dead's April 2013 release date, but the impressively gruesome trailer seemed to get many non-believers onside. Maybe it will be "the most terrifying film we will ever experience". We'll find out 12th April, 2013.

Movie Review

Oh, It’s More Than Just a Flesh Wound

By MANOHLA DARGIS



 The remake of “The Evil Dead,” Sam Raimi’s 1981 horror film about a cabin of cult curiosities, doesn’t have the original’s wooden performances, puffy clothes and hairdos or its amusingly crude special effects, but it does share its blood lust. Torrential and somewhat rust colored, the blood in the remake splish-splashes across the screen, spurts out of bodies, soaks into floors and falls from the sky like a biblical portent. If the rivers of red in Mr. Raimi’s movie flowed more like molasses than water, it’s because they were created with food dye and Karo syrup.


The new “Evil Dead” has none of the first movie’s handmade charm or hilarity, intentional or otherwise. (It also lost its “The.”) The director, Fede Alvarez, approaches the creaky material with a surprisingly straight face and a fair amount of throat clearing. Unlike Mr. Raimi, who scarcely bothered with preliminaries, Mr. Alvarez sets the creepy mood with a sacrificial immolation and a basement strung with desiccated cats. When his five souls roll up to their cabin, he continues to keep his foot on the brake with some back story involving Mia (Jane Levy), her drug addiction and issues with her brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez.)


Finally something wicked does come, racing and smashing through the surrounding forest, and Mr. Alvarez, making his feature directing debut, gets his gore on. Taking his cues as much from the Abstract Expressionists as from Mr. Raimi, Mr. Alvarez opens up the book of the dead (bound in human flesh and tied with barbed wire) and makes handy sport with an electric meat knife and a nail gun, among other convenient and preposterous household items. As the plot thickens and the viscera and limbs fly, his mood appreciably lightens, and at least one scene approaches the macabre comedy of the black knight scene in “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”


 “The Evil Dead” enjoys the reputation of a cult classic, but its more lasting significance is as a cheapie do-it-yourself production that achieved indie success. (New Line Cinema picked it up and squeezed it dry.) The movie made Mr. Raimi’s reputation and set him down a path that led to two “Dead” sequels and eventual blockbuster fame. His star, Bruce Campbell, a puckish presence with a chin as big as an Easter ham, can be seen on the USA Network show “Burn Notice” as well as in an eye-blink fast cameo here. It’s too early to tell if Mr. Alvarez will be able similarly to translate this movie into a lasting career, but one of his stars, Lou Taylor Pucci, deserves a boost.


“Evil Dead” is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). Slice and dice, baby.
