Report: Update on new “Evil Dead” film, Diablo Cody wrote script but Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell will still be a part of it…

Ghost House Pictures gave us new details on the new “Evil Dead” movie that was leaked to the web the other day. Diablo Cody, who won an Oscar for her script, “Juno” and she wrote the horror film, “Jennifer’s Body”, have written the script for the new “Evil Dead” remake. Yes, Ghost House Pictures which is a film company owned by Sam Raimi confirmed this will be a remake of the first “Evil Dead” film.

Sam Raimi won’t be directing this one, they are tapping Fede Alvarez, to write and direct the remake, but Diablo Cody is helping out re-writing the drafts. Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell will be producing the film.

No castings for the “Evil Dead” remake have been announced yet, they still didn’t even say if Bruce Campbell is going to reprise his role as Ash. I hope Bruce will return to the leading role ’cause it’s not an Evil Dead movie without him, in my opinion. They probably are going to get someone else to play Ash.

I don’t know what to say about this now. I’m kind of excited and disappointed at the same time. I’m excited that Sam, Rob, and Bruce will be a part of it but disappointed that it’s a remake. I was hoping they would continue the story after, “Army of Darkness”. At the end of “Army Of Darkness”, it seems they left open a 4th movie, ending the movie with Bruce fighting this demon at the S-mart store.

I’m a huge Evil Dead and Bruce Campbell fan. I hope they don’t screw this film up.

Deadline, reports.
