It's a grave day for gorehounds. Evil Dead may have made a whole ton of cash at the box office this year, but it seems that Evil Dead 2 won't be rising from the pit any time soon. Speaking with Gorotsito.TV, and admitted to abandoning the project:
Look, I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won’t happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved. We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things. I don’t know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not part of that project.
However, it's not all bad news for Evil Dead fans, as Army of Darkness 2 is still going ahead, with directing and strongly hinted to be involved. A lot of Evil Dead purists sniffed at the 2013 reboot, but I was impressed by the style, gore and black humor of the movie. I'd really like to see an Evil Dead 2 at some point, but what do you guys think about it?
