"Evil Dead" Remake is Now Filming, Sam Raimi Suing Over "Evil Dead 4"

"Evil Dead" Remake is Now Filming, Sam Raimi Suing Over "Evil Dead 4"Submit Comment
Sony Pictures announced that the upcoming "Evil Dead" remake has started filming in Auckland, New Zealand and will wrap principal photography in early July. It is directed by Fede Alvarez and is set to hit theaters on April 12th, 2013.

Plot: Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

The cast includes Jane Levy (Suburgatory) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie.

"We found a brilliant artist in Fede Alvarez," said Sam Raimi, who's producing the new film. "As a director, he understands what makes a story work and how to put the pieces together. I'm really excited to see this story, that I care deeply about, retold by such a fine storyteller."

In related news, Raimi is suing a company called Award Pictures for trying to make "Evil Dead 4," since he has his own plans to develop a new sequel, in addition to the already announced remake.

Award Pictures claims that Raimi abandoned the "Evil Dead" trademark when he announced in "The Evil Dead Companion" book that "we're never going to do a sequel." THR says this could be a warning to all those in Hollywood who attempt to lower expectation among fans and the media for a sequel to a hit.

You can relinquish rights to an idea just by stating "I'm not making any more sequels" in a book now? And if so how in the hell did award pictures "get" the rights for it??? f*cking Retards. You get em' Sam
