Fede Alvarez’s ‘Evil Dead 2’ Will Happen When a Good Story is Presented



Fede Alvarez's Sequel to 'Evil Dead' Will Probably Happen When a Good Story is Found

As much as we all want to see a sequel to director Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, we could be in for a very long wait. In a recent interview with the folks over at Entertainment Weekly, Alvarez revealed that a satisfying follow up story has never been presented.

Alvarez told the site:

Look, I love those movies. Making my Evil Dead was an amazing experience, it was my first film. So, going back at some point will be a possibility. I mean, I’m really good friends with all those guys, with Bruce, and Sam, and Rob (Tapert, who has produced all the Evil Dead movies). So, we always chat about it. 

The good news — and I think that’s what sometimes people don’t understand — is, none of those guys will make any of these movies just because they can, just because it’s good business. They will only make it if they believe they have some good story to tell. A lot of people say that in this industry, but most of the time it’s not true. With those guys, all of us involved in those movies, we will just make them if we believe there’s a story that has to be told, and is awesome, and is great, and we believe that it will be better than anything that will be done before in that world. 

[When] we find that story, when we all agree on what it is, it will probably happen.

So there you have it. Alvarez is up for directing the Evil Dead sequel when the story is right, which means another long waiting period.

Dark Universe will continue to keep you updated on any progress the project makes.
