Wow! The Evil Dead reboot news has been blowing up recently! There was a rumor that The Evil Dead reboot was moving forward, then Bruce Campbell confirmed it on his Twitter, now word is out the the movie actually has a director attached to it!
According to the report the Sam Raimi produced film will be directed by short film director Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez). The Evil Dead will end up being Alvarez's first feature film project. We've actually previously posted one Alvarez's short films called Panic Attack. It was a great little sci-fi short, and I knew that he would end up landing a solid directing gig one day. It must be incredibly awesome for him that this will be it. I just want to throw out a congratulations to Alvarez, and wish him luck on the new Evil Dead film project.
This will be a low budget film production from Ghost House Pictures, and it will shoot Detroit, Michigan before Raimi starts in on OZ, The Great and Powerful. So this Movie is movie full steam ahead and will be shot and in the can in no time. No word on if Campbell will be in the film. It will be very intersting to see how this all turns out.
Check out the Panic Attack short film below and tell us what you think about Alverez directing this film?
