Seems like audiences were screaming for the return of Evil Dead as the re-imagined movie debuted at numero uno over the weekend in America, bringing in an estimated $26 million.
Whilst initially another Evil Dead seemed like a foolish idea, reviews have been good and the film apparently stays faithful to the original whilst not mirroring it exactly. The spirit is there, thanks to Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell pulling the strings as producers.
It now seems that the already talked about Evil Dead II will get greenlit and there is also rumour of Raimi coming back to the tale with an Army Of Darkness II and maybe even a crossover of the two to follow. Phew, it’s a busy time in that ole cabin. Dead by dawn! Dead by dawn!
