[Movies] Fede Alvarez And Rodo Sayagues No Longer Involved With Evil Dead 2 Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.30.2013
They've left the sequel to the remake...
Gorosito.TV reports that Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez and co-writer Rodo Sayagues are not going to be involved with the sequel.
Sayagues said: "Look, I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won't happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved. We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things. I don't know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not part of that project."
At Comic-Con earlier this year, Alvarez still seemed like he was on board, as he said they were working on a story for the sequel. Now it appears as though he has left the project.
After the success of the remake, there were reports that the plan was to have Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness 2 and then a crossover. Army of Darkness 2 still seems to be gathering momentum, as Sam Raimi was confirmed by Alvarez to be directing. Bruce Campbell has said he will return for the film as well.
