Fede Alvarez Still Attached to EVIL DEAD 2; Says the Priority Is ARMY OF DARKNESS 2

Yesterday, we reported that, according to Evil Dead writer Rodo Sayagues, he and director/co-writer Fede Alvarez would not return for Evil Dead 2, and had been off the project for months.  Alvarez took to Twitter to explain that people shouldn’t believe everything they read on the Internet, and also told Bloody Disgusting that this was a matter of an interview getting lost in translation.  “Rodo meant we’re not actually making Evil Dead 2 right now because the priority is Sam [Raimi's] Army of Darkness 2,” says Alvarez.  “But the plan of making a sequel to our Evil Dead is very much alive.”

This is still a tad confusing.  It does provide further confirmation that Army of Darkness 2 is really in development, but it’s worth noting that Alvarez’ remake and Raimi’s previous series are completely separate.  It’s possible that Sayagues and Alavarez are working as producers and/or writers on Army of Darkness 2, which could be neat.

    I’m confused. Is this or is this not the one starring Bruce Campbell? Because THAT’s the one I want to see, not some torture porn.

    • doctor_robot

      it is.

      except that the new evil dead…which was great….was no more torture porn than the original ones….which are also great.

        That’s just like…your opinion, man.

    The rumor is floating around that there will eventually be a crossover film with Alverez’s “Evil Dead” and Raimi’s “Army of Darkness”, bringing Ash together with Mia fighting the deadites. With Alverez and Sayagues saying they’re concentrating on “Army of Darkness 2″, could this actually be happening?

    This is great new, bring on AOD2. The Evil Dead remake was not good.

    • bombinUSA

      agreed it wasn’t good…it was GREAT.

      It wasn’t a remake, it was a sequel. The cameo from Bruce Campbell should’ve clued you.

        there was no cameo by Bruce Campbell you are mistaken

        His little apperance doesn’t mean anything it has nothing to do with anything it’s just for the fans it doesn’t mean it’s a sequel

      • Slade Rockwell

        First you say he wasn’t in it THEN you say it means nothing. OK, how about this, Campbell has ALREADY SAID the universes were the same. Live in denial if you want but is pretty much stated and a given.

      • http://delusionallosers.wordpress.com/ Anthony Donovan Stokes

        I said he didn’t make a cameo. And the universes are the same yeah, but your whole this means its a sequel is a stretch.

    WUT? I thought ED (2013) [which, I actually really liked btw] was just like a sequel to the Evil Dead movies or something…as in, the Necronomicon still existed in the same universe, and the Bruce Campbell part at the end tied them together.

    I think what they’re trying to say is that THEY ARE the same universe, but different storylines, that they ultimately want to bring together.

    SIDE NOTE: Disney-Marvel has brought forth the newest trend in blockbuster film making: the crossover. Now everybody is gonna start to do it. Which might be cool, might be bad and might be hilarious to see when it inevitably jumps the shark.

      Well, I don’t think there’s necessarily an implication of a crossover here; they do take place in the same universe in a way, but they could easily be parallel alternate universes that never cross over, similar to Snyder’s new Batman existing in a separate universe from that of Nolan’s Batman.
      As far as the new Evil Dead being a sequel to all of them, I could be mistaken, but that doesn’t seem to add up to me; in the new Evil Dead they discover the book in the cabin and all that, and it’s the same as on the original and it seems to be the origin of the story and the first discovery of the Necronomicon and what not, and it seems clearly like a rehash of the origin story, not a sequel. I thought this was pretty obvious, but, I could be wrong.

    Lol Jesus, what’s all the confusion about? Obviously these guys are attached as writers or producers or something(like someone has mentinoned) to the Army of Darkness sequel that Sam Raimi is making, and they also have future plans for a sequel to the Evil Dead remake that They made. How is this confusing? I have not followed this story at all and it took me all of a minute to come to this conclusion, based on what is contained in this article. Come on now people ;)

  • Matt1

    Neither of these will ever happen.
