Jane Levy Says Evil Dead 2's Outlook Doesn't Look Good

She doesn't think it's happening...
Jane Levy wowed horror hounds with her performance in the Evil Dead remake, but it doesn't sound like she'll be back for a second go around...at least, as far as she knows. Levy spoke with JoBlo and said that she hasn't heard anything about a sequel and that she doesn't think it's happening.
"I don't think they're gonna make it," she said. "I mean, they're always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they're making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs] I think they just like exciting their fans and confusing them. I honestly don't know, but it doesn't seem like there's going to be an Evil Dead 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it."
Of note here is the fact that Fede Alvarez, who directed the first film, pointedly said back in May that a sequel was "something we definitely want to do at some point" but that they are taking their time to find the right script and not rushing things. So it makes sense that Levy might not have heard about it.
