Early Plans for ‘Evil Dead’ Sequel Revealed at SXSW
The Evil Dead remake has screened at SXSW in its world premiere, and director and co-writer Fede Alvarez has already announced his plans for a sequel in an after-show Q&A session. “We already started writing Evil Dead 2,” he teased.
Original star Bruce Campbell was in attendance, and whipped fans into a frenzy by calling for a brand new trilogy of films. Don’t expect him to appear though, though he acted as producer on this first instalment, as he told the crowd:
“I wasn’t in this for a really good reason, and I probably won’t be in the others for a really good reason… We wanted these to be completely separate. I hope one day you can go to a movie theatre and watch the first three, and then the second three, and enjoy them all.”
