The Evil Dead is set to remade with Oscar winning screenwriter Diablo Cody on board. On Tuesday, news filtered through that the cult Zombie franchise was to resurface but nobody quite knew in what form, a fourth instalment or a remake? Cody will join director Federico Alvarez on the project which is now a 'Remake'. Hit the jump for the details.
Producers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell stated: "We are committed to making this movie and are inspired by the enduring popularity and enthusiasm for the Evil Dead series. We can’t wait to scare a new generation of moviegoers using filmmaking techniques that were not available to us thirty years ago as well as Fede [Alvarez] bringing a fresh eye to the film’s original elements." Raimi's Ghost House Pictures will produce the remake. Lionsgate will distribute.
