Director Fede Alvarez revealed to a sold-out and highly energized SXSW crowd that he's already begun writing a sequel to his remake of Evil Dead. Look for a review for the movie coming at you in a little while.

Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today's audience that's high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody. Executive producers are J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane, Joseph Drake, and Peter Schlessel.

The Evil Dead has been rated R for “strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language. Look for it in theatres on April 5th, 2013.

I wonder if this will be a surprise hit or a flop like Let Me In. I'm interested to see where this goes.
