Check it out –
Bloody Disgusting is being told exclusively that Sam Raimi is gearing up to produce a quasi-remake of The Evil Dead, his breakthrough horror film from 1981 that starred Bruce Campbell as “Ash”, a modern day warrior who fends off resurrected deadites.
In an exclusive scoop, we’re told that Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez) is directing for Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures and Mandate.
Casting is already taking place in Detroit, Michigan for a “low budget” shoot before Raimi steps behind the camera for Oz: The Great and Powerful.
