Thanks to a daily bit of browsing over at Ain’t It Cool News I caught a bit of info that was passed on to the site from Penny Blood Magazine based on an interview they conducted with Bruce Campbell where he talked a bit about the possibility of an Evil Dead remake. Check out the quote below:
We don’t really talk about [another] sequel too much ’cause Sam is too busy right now. It would all be kinda moot. But I think we’re gonna do a remake. It’ll be a whole new story, though. It won’t be with Ash. It’ll be the evil book, and it’ll affect a whole new group of people in a different situation. More like a reinvention. A lot of people, they got really crabby on the Internet when they first heard that type of stuff. But, we would never do anything to insult them. The trick is to take that premise – and we think it’s a scary premise – and use some cool modern day FXâ€¦ so we won’t have green garden hoses in the shots. We wanna make a flat out, scary-ass, un-rated horror film.”
I think every horror fan can agree that when Bruce Campbell refers to it as “a flat out, scary-ass, un-rated horror film” it certainly gets the blood pumping. Get the rest of the interview here.
