Like most I dont care much for remakes but I cant deny that the Evil Dead remake gets me pretty pumped up!
During a panel at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Convention, Bruce Campbell had positive things to say about the upcoming ‘Evil Dead’ remake.
“We will be heavily involved in it. Sam Raimi hand-picked Fede Alvarez to direct it… It’s not like we’re just tossing this thing out and farting out a sequel. It’ll be kind of a hand-made movie with a young filmmaker who is more experienced than we were when we made the first one, who will be casting more experienced actors than we had, so I don’t see how it could be any worse.”
Add to that writer Diablo Cody (Juno) and a cameo from Bruce Campbell himself and I think we are in for a ride.
Maybe if the movie is successfull enough they will go on and remake Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, I for one would LOVE a remake of Army of Darkness!
They had me at “a cameo from Bruce Campbell”, what about you guys? Do you share my optimism or is it hands off the classics?
Hail to the king, baby!
