Tapert: Looking at Evil Dead Remake Script

ON

Why does Sam want to see it done again?

Rob Tapert, the man who operates Ghost House Pictures with Sam Raimi, says the long-mooted Evil Dead remake is not dead.

“It’s possible; we’re looking at a script this month,” Tapert told Freep.com during an interview concerning Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. “What’s interesting about ‘Evil Dead’ is very few people saw it in the format we made it for, which is for the theater. … I think Sam wants to embrace the ultimate experience in grueling terror and see it remade for a proper theatrical experience.”

Shock knows a lot of writers and directors who have taken a meeting for the Evil Dead remake gig with the Ghost House team. Hard to believe Tapert and Raimi are still giving it a push.

As usual, avoid any casting rumors from here on out until something is made official.
