‘The Evil Dead’ Officially Moves Forward at Ghost House Pictures

Sam Raimi and original producing partners Robert G. Tapert and Bruce Campbell (who also starred in the original franchise) are gearing up to remake their cult sensation The Evil Dead through their long standing Ghost House Pictures partnership. Sam Raimi and Robert G. Tapert were such instant fans of Federico Alvarez's short film "Panic Attack!" that they set up a blind deal with the filmmaker and through that process have attached Federico Alvarez to write and direct the film. Federico Alvarez wrote the script with Rodolfo Sayagues. Academy Award® winning screenwriter Diablo Cody is currently doing revisions on the draft. Ghost House is committed to renewing the franchise and has the film on the fast track.

Sam Raimi and original producing partners Robert G. Tapert and Bruce Campbell will serve as producers. Ghost House Pictures partners Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane will executive produce. Nicole Brown and J.R. Young will oversee the project for Ghost House. Lionsgate will handle international sales on the film.
