Evil Dead 2 Not Happening?

It wasn’t that long ago, March to be precise, that Fede Alvarez was on record saying that he was still co-writing and directing the sequel to his successful remake/reboot/re-imagining of Sam Raimi’s classic Evil Dead. Apparently that’s changed.

Now, according to co-writer Rodo Sayagues, they’re both off the project. Rodo 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.”

Last we heard, as in a about a week ago, the Raimi fronted Army of Darkness sequel is still moving forward. I hope that Alvarez and Sayagues find a way to return to the project. I enjoyed Evil Dead, even with it’s flaws, and would love to see the further adventures of Mia. Fingers crossed it actually happens.
