EVIL DEAD 2 Already In Development
Deadline reports that writer/director Fede Alvarez confirmed during the Evil Dead screening at SXSW that a sequel is already in development. Fede called the film Evil Dead 2 and it sounds more solid than Sam Raimi's recent retracted statements on his Evil Dead 4. The reactions to the screening have been mostly positive to it's gory practical effects (filmmakers opted out on heavy CG). Some stating it's it's the goriest studio horror film in a decade. Sounding like the horror community are likely to embrace the film and a new franchise is in the cards.
