Update: Fede Alvarez Still Attached To “Evil Dead 2”

October 31, 2013

UPDATE: I had a feeling that something just wasn’t right about the report yesterday concerning Fede Alvarez not directing EVIL DEAD 2. There is no way he wouldn’t tell anybody that he’s not doing it.

Alvarez states that, “stuff got lost in translation” with co-writer Rodo Sayagues in the Gorosito interview published yesterday. He elaborated, “Rodo meant we’re not actually making ‘Evil Dead 2′ right now because the priority is Sam’s ‘Army of Darkness 2.’ But the plan of making a sequel to our ‘Evil Dead’ is very much alive.

Yesterday Sayagues told Gorosito TV that the pair were no longer attached to the project. But was Sayagues speaking solely for himself or was there some miscommunication? The report quoted Sayagues as saying, “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 part of that project.

But now Alvarez is telling fans on Twitter not to believe everything they read. It looks like the focus right now is on Army of Darkness 2 and afterwards Evil Dead 2. Does Sayagues have no clue what’s going on with his own project or did Gorosito TV paint the wrong picture?

While nothing is confirmed yet, it seems as though Alvarez is still onboard. The question is, in what capacity? Will Alvarez produce, direct, focus on script duties, or all of the above?
