Evil Dead movie Remake coming !

Posted by:
According to Variety, director Sam Raimi and original producing partners Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are reteaming to produce a remake of the cult hit "The Evil Dead" through Ghost House Pictures and Senator International.

The remake will not be directed by Sam Raimi, so Ghost House is looking for a helmer to reinvent the franchise before a script is written. It also has not been said if Bruce Campbell will reprise his role as Ash, or if a new actor will be casted. The original "Evil Dead" movie from 1981 was written and directed by Sam Raimi. This auspicious feature debut from (shot on 16mm in the woods of Tennesse for around $350,000), secured the young director's cult status as a creative force to be reckoned with. The nominal plot involves five vacationing college kids (Ash played by Bruce Campbell, his girlfriend Linda, and their classmates Cheryl, Scott and Shelly) making an unplanned stopover in an abandoned mountain cabin surrounded by impenetrable woods. Before settling in for the night, they come across an ancient-looking occult tome filled with dense hieroglyphics and macabre illustrations, a dagger fashioned from human bones, and a reel-to-reel tape recorder.

The taped message, dictated by a professor of archaeology, describes the contents of the Sumerian "Book of the Dead," filled with incantations used to bring otherworldly demons to life, giving them license to possess the living. The message goes on to explain that those possessed by these demons can only be stopped by total bodily dismemberment. When played among the group later that evening, the professor's recorded translations of the ritual chants traumatize the strangely prescient Shelly ... and simultaneously release an ominous presence from the depths of the forest.
