Is the Evil Dead remake happening or not? Is it a remake or will it actuallt be a sequel? No one seems to know, and every now and then a new buzz of news and excitement surrounds the project, and usually that buzz comes from something Bruce ‘The Chin’ Campbell has said. For those who don’t know, the legend is now on Twitter and the other day he responded to a question put to him by a fan on some fresh news posted by Dread Central.
The news was that “long-time Sam Raimi editor Bob Murawski (Army of Darkness; Spider-man, Drag me to Hell) has packed up and headed out to Detroit to begin work on the long talked about fourth entry into the Evil Dead franchise.” Some great news indeed, and hopefully very true and we can all be excited by this, a fourth film, a sequel (or, indeed a prequel) to add to Sam Raimi’s classic series. However, Mr Campbell has thrown as spanner in the works on Twitter, causing some confusion amongst fans, here is how he responded to the news when asked by a fan as posted on Dread Central:
According to Bruce Campbell’s official website BruceCampbell.com, Bruce officially joined Twitter over the weekend (Follow @GroovyBruce). On his Twitter site Bruce was questioned by a fan who stated “I won’t believe in a new Evil Dead film until I see it. Or at least not until Source: GroovyBruce tells me to believe in it” to which Campbell responded “Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.”
See the issue there? Campbell states a ‘remake’ whereas Bob Murawski claims its the ‘fourth’ film. Either way, it sounds like it is happening, we just don’t know what kind of film it is going to be. More on this as it happens, and be sure to follow Bruce Campbell on Twitter.
