Raimi Still Keen To Reboot “Evil Dead”

Sam Raimi’s long-time producing partner Rob Tapert tells Freep.com that the long-gestating “Evil Dead” remake is still alive and Sam Raimi is still interested.

“It’s possible; we’re looking at a script this month. What’s interesting about ‘Evil Dead’ is very few people saw it in the format we made it for, which is for the theater. … I think Sam wants to embrace the ultimate experience in gruelling terror and see it remade for a proper theatrical experience” says Tapert

STYD adds that numerous writers and directors have taken meetings for the “Evil Dead” remake with Ghost House Pictures over the years.
