May we – and by that I mean the collective Internet, including Shock – should all just simmer down and not jump on every ounce of Evil Dead-related news until stuff becomes official, eh? “That’ll teach ya,” as a wise man named Ash once said in a film called Army of Darkness. “That’ll teach ya.”
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. Ah, lovely.
What Sayagues apparently meant was that Army of Darkness 2 is taking a priority and that Evil Dead 2 is very much in development with Sayagues and Alvares still attached.
