First Look: First Photo from 'Evil Dead' Remake Rears its Ugly Head
Another day, another remake. Screen Gems hit the New York Comic-Con this weekend with reveals for two of their upcoming horror remakes in 2013. One was Carrie with Chloe Moretz, the other is The Evil Dead, this one actually sanctioned by Sam Raimi and produced by his company Ghost House Pictures, directed by Uruguayan up-and-comer Fede Alvarez. So it is a legit remake, and as mentioned a few months ago even Bruce Campbell is defending it, despite not appearing in it. EW.com has posted the first photo online and it's a first look at the ugly undead vermin in the basement that will be tormenting the visitors. Take a peek!
Evil Dead (2013) is a Raimi-approved-and-produced remake of Sam Raimi's original 1981 low budget horror classic, The Evil Dead. Directing is Fede Alvarez, a Uruguayan filmmaker who broke into Hollywood with his short film Panic Attack, making his feature debut with this. He helped write the script after he came on-board, with Oscar winner Diablo Cody credited on the original draft. The new cast includes Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore. Sony/Screen Gems will be releasing this new Evil Dead in theaters on April 12th next spring. It's not much, but good so far?
