I don’t normally care two hoots about the World Cup. But suddenly I want Uruguay to win it. Why? Because Fede Alvarez, who directed the pretty impressive remake of The Evil Dead, has made a deal with someone on Twitter: if Uruguay wins the World Cup, he’ll direct the sequel. A fan named Justine Bane tweeted to him: “If Uruguay win the World Cup will u make Evil Dead 2??”. The director’s reply: “DEAL”.
With Ash vs. Evil Dead officially canceled by Starz, and Bruce Campbell having retired Ash but given his blessing for the franchise to carry on without him and even teased future installments, nobody really knows what’s going to happen next, but many still want Alvarez to follow up his remake.
So let’s all get behind Uruguay. The future of the Evil Dead series could be dependent on the World Cup.
