‘Evil Dead’ Remake Gets Sony Pictures, FilmDistrict On Board!

Sam Raimi’s horror I-can’t-believe-you-haven’t-seen-it classic ‘Evil Dead’ is getting a remake via his Ghost House Pictures arm. The new film, with a script that’s been re-written by none other than Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult, Jennifer’s Body), is to be directed by Fede Alvarez (Panic Attack).

The Evil Dead Trilogy gave the world the enduring hero of Ash and the comedic and performing sensation that is Bruce Campbell. Massive shoes to fill for any new production!
