Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake blew up at SXSW recently, the things I've heard have been awesome! It sounds like fans of the original have a right to be excited. During a Q&A screening of the film the director and co-writer of the horror film revealed that a sequel was already in the works!
I guess this is an official announcement: We are already writing Evil Dead 2.
Spectacular! I haven't even seen the the movie yet, and I already can't wait to see what's in stare for the sequel. It got even better when producer and star of the original Evil Dead films, Bruce Campbell, said, that the team envisions the films existing as another standalone trilogy, which means we've got not one but two more sequels on the way!
All I can say is, bring on the blood and gore! I'm looking forward to seeing the direction they end up taking this rebooted horror franchise.
