Sam Raimi set to resurrect The Evil Dead for modern remake

Like many of its Deadite (read zombie) antagonists, it’s the movie series that never seems quite ready to rest in peace. According to a US report, Sam Raimi is planning a remake of his notorious 1981 horror, The Evil Dead.

The new film would presumably mark the launch of a new series of films – The Evil Dead was followed by Evil Dead II in 1987 and Army of Darkness in 1992. Bruce Campbell starred in all three films.

Rob Tapert, Raimi’s longtime producing partner, told the Detroit Free Press the film-maker wanted to see The Evil Dead remade for a proper theatrical experience — via redwolf.newsvine.com
