Fede Alvarez Says EVIL DEAD Sequel Will Only Happen If There's A Good Story
Evil Dead fans were pretty big fans of the remake by Fede Alvarez, at least enough so that many are wondering if the sequel to the remake will ever happen. Alvarez, who is directing The Girl In The Spider's Web, recently spoke about the possibility of a sequel happening with EW, and said it's only going to happen if there's a good story he and everyone else can agree on:
“Look, I love those movies. Making my Evil Dead was an amazing experience, it was my first film. So, going back at some point will be a possibility. I mean, I’m really good friends with all those guys, with Bruce, and Sam, and Rob (Tapert, who has produced all the Evil Dead movies). So, we always chat about it. The good news — and I think that’s what sometimes people don’t understand — is, none of those guys will make any of these movies just because they can, just because it’s good business. They will only make it if they believe they have some good story to tell. A lot of people say that in this industry, but most of the time it’s not true. With those guys, all of us involved in those movies, we will just make them if we believe there’s a story that has to be told, and is awesome, and is great, and we believe that it will be better than anything that will be done before in that world. [When] we find that story, when we all agree on what it is, it will probably happen.”
Well, it's good to know a sequel isn't completely out of the realm of possibility, although this update doesn't sound any more promising than any update over the past couple of years. Are you still interested in seeing a follow up to the original remake?
