Evil Dead Musical On Big Screen

Producer Don Carmody is in negotiations with Sam Raimi to adapt stage play “Evil Dead: the Musical” into a 3D movie reports Screen Daily.

Conceived by George Reinblatt, Christopher Bond, Frank Cipolla and Melissa Morris, the camp stage interpretation of Raimi’s cult classic horror trilogy was originally mounted in Toronto and Montreal and has since gone off-Broadway.

Bond and choreographer Hinton Battle will co-direct the 3D film version which they hope to shoot in Toronto next Spring with some of the original cast.

At the moment however serious rights issues still need to be resolved.
