Evil Dead was in full force at WonderCon 2013 this afternoon, with director Fede Alvarez joining stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and executive producer (original star) Bruce Campbell on stage for a look at some very gory footage from the film.
During the Q&A presentation, Fede Alvarez once again confirmed that Evil Dead 2 is moving forward fast, news he announced at this year's SXSW festival, where Evil Dead was met with copious amounts of praise. He didn't reveal any new details, but he did say he has 'big plans' for this franchise. He then dropped a bombshell: Evil Dead 2 and the recently announced Army of Darkness 2 will eventually crossover for the ultimate cult horror movie Evil Dead 7.
At this time, Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan Raimi are working on the screenplay for Army of Darkness 2, which will continue the story of Ash as seen in the original The Evil Dead from 1981. While Fede Alvarez might have been joking, he seemed serious when he said he plans to join both his new franchise together with Sam Raimi's old franchise.
Will this ever happen? Maybe. But it will be a long way off.
