"Look, I am sorry to tell you this, but that movie won't happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved. We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things. I don't know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not a part of the project."
The news comes just days after Fede Alvarez confirmed that Sam Raimi is directing Army of Darkness 2, which brings back Bruce Campbell as the beloved Ash. The actor revealed at WonderCon that the story may bring Ash together with Jane Levy's Mia from the Evil Dead remake, but that hasn't been confirmed.
