Yesterday, news hit — via the co-writer of this year’s Evil Dead remake, Rodo Sayagues — that both he and director Fede Alvarez walked away from the project.
Not so, apparently.
Alvarez took to Twitter overnight to tell his fans not to believe everything they read on the Internet. He also told B-D that, basically, this was a case of things getting lost in translation.
What Sayagues apparently meant was that Army of Darkness 2 is taking priority and that Evil Dead 2 is very much in development with Sayagues and Alvares still attached.
Made for $17 million, the Evil Dead remake earned $97.5 million worldwide.
