Fede Alvarez Offers Updates on Next Projects, Including Evil Dead 2
A follow-up to 2013's Evil Dead is unfortunately still a long way off.
By Chris Morse
Ever since a fun little tease during the World Cup last summer, fans of Evil Dead and its 2013 remake have kept a close eye on director Fede Alvarez for updates on when a follow-up may happen. All signs are indicating that it will indeed happen sooner or later, but in a chat with MovieWeb, Alvarez has offered a more specific update on the potential project as well as the status of a sequel to Don't Breathe.
Simply put, an Evil Dead sequel is likely going to have to wait a while because the movie does not yet have a script. On the contrary, Don't Breathe 2 does and that means we can expect to see that sooner, not to mention the fact the director is simply more interested in tackling that project first. You can read his full comments below.[blockquote-0]
Nothing is concrete for an Evil Dead 2 just yet, but it is certainly a project that Alvarez wants to tackle and is excited to do so. However, a sequel to Don't Breathe, his very own property, is much farther along and something that he is more interested in tackling first. Either way, it's not bad news but fans are going to have to wait a while to see him take on Evil Dead once more.
