Based on the video game and animated film...
The director of Evil Dead is headed to Hell. STYD reports that Fede Alvarez has been brought on board to direct a big-screen adaptation of the 2010 video game Dante's Inferno, which previously spawned a direct-to-DVD animated film. Universal and Strike Entertainment are set to produce the film with Alvarez at the helm.
The film will be an action/horror hybrid that finds the knight Dante Aligheri descending into the nine rings of Hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. Along the way he fights sundry demons while getting caught up in a war between Heaven and Hell.
