Sony has locked down a release date for The Evil Dead remake, directed by Fede Alvarez and produce by Sam Raim, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert.
Given the recent news shooting will not begin until March, it looks like you’ll have a full year or so to gripe more about the fact it is getting made.
The studio – which partnered with Film District to release the remake – announced The Evil Dead is going to strike on April 12, 2013. That is somewhat at the cusp of the summer movie season these days. I wonder if Sony will be keeping a close eye on how The Cabin in the Woods performs in April 2012 and take a few notes from that release.
Recently, some massive plot details from the remake were release and we’re going to refrain from spoiling the whole picture (which this script review disguised as a news item all but did). If you dig around, you’ll find it.
As we reported first here on Shock, shooting is going to take place in New Zealand. Between now and March, expect some casting announcements to start popping up.
