'Evil Dead Rise': Bruce Campbell Teases "It's all About the Necronomicon"

Evil Dead Rise, the next chapter in the Evil Dead series, is on its way from New Line Cinema, which is currently being directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground) in New Zealand. Original series star Bruce Campbell, who is on board as a producer, teased some exciting things regarding the Necronomicon in a brand new interview.

While speaking about the upcoming Evil Dead Rise in an article published today by our friends at Entertainment Weekly, Campbell revealed some things that will surely please die-hard fans of the iconic horror series:

People can actually call it what [they] want: Sequel, remake, reimagining. It really is just another Evil Dead movie. It’s book-centric. It’s all about [the Necronomicon]. Where does this book wind up and what happens to it over the millennia?

He added:

In this case, it’s set in the city, it’s no more cabin in the woods. It’s entirely different, unsuspecting heroines who are going to save the day. It’s filming now in New Zealand, with some of their amazing crews down there and they’re well into it. Rob Tapert is the hands-on producer and we’re all very involved in the script. We all jump in at various times to chime in.

Finishing with:

But, yeah, the three of us are very involved.

Robert Tapert will produce, with franchise creator Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell serving as executive producers.

The film stars Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.
