It looks like the epic plans for the reunification of the “Evil Dead” franchise may have been scrapped.
Fede Alvarez was the helmer behind the release of the “Evil Dead” remake/reboot back in April. Around that time he had already been indicating a script for a sequel was on the way.
He later also talked about an overall plan for the franchise which would see a sequel to the reboot, “Army of Darkness 2,” and then a film that would unite the two takes on the material.
“Look, I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won’t happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved.
We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things. I don’t know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not part of that project.”
Instead, Alvarez and Sayagues are turning their attention towards the sci-fi feature “Machina”.
