Remake of “The Evil Dead”?

Thursday, November 18th, 2004

There seems to be a lot
about a remake of Sam Rami’s 1981 Horror flick, The Evil Dead.

For those of you who know what I’m talking about, I’ll let that
sink in. For the rest of you… shame on you!


and then come back (unless you’re squeemish, then just
don’t bother).

It seems that Rami will not direct, and there is no word if
Bruce will be
involved. While I can’t imagine him playing Ash in the remake, I
can’t see much point to an Evil Dead film with someone else playing
the role.

In an
last month Rami said that the rumored Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash was not going
to happen. He also said “maybe someday” about a possible
Evil Dead 4, which is only
slightly more positive than past statements.

I’m sure that a remake would look a lot more interesting today than
a low budget film from 1981. I guess I’ll wait and see what
happens, but I’m not convinced it’s a great idea.� If this thing
can make some money that can be put towards making a fourth Evil
Dead film with Bruce and Sam, that’s great.� If not?�
