Yesterday, Evil Dead screenwriter Rodo Sayagues Mendez revealed in an interview that he and director Fede Alvarez have parted ways with Evil Dead 2. However, Fede Alvarez shot down the report on his Twitter page.
The director elaborated that the writer's comments were "lost in translation," and added that the sequel is still alive, although another sequel, Army of Darkness 2, has become a bigger priority.
"Rodo meant we're not actually making Evil Dead 2 right now because the priority is Sam (Raimi)'s Army of Darkness 2. But the plan of making a sequel to our Evil Dead is very much alive."
