JANE LEVY and BRUCE CAMPBELL Talk EVIL DEAD Remake
Whatever your thoughts may be on an Evil Dead remake, the movie is really being made, and now Jane Levy, the lead, and the original Ash Bruce Campbell, have said a few things about the movie.
The Insider talked with the new star of the movie along with Campbell who is a producer for the film. Fede Alvarez will be directing with a script from Diablo Cody and Sam Raimi is attached as a producer. All we know right now is that it's going to be a horror movie in the truest sense and will still have the necronomicon destroying lives. Read what Levy and Campbell said, right after the break.
Levy said "I'm so excited," while talking about the project. She also added, "I'm a big fan of the original. To me it's the scariest movie, ever. But this one is really different. They've changed it a lot, but it's still a pretty gory movie. My mom probably can't see it."
She also confirmed that it will be nothing like the originals saying, "I think the humor in the first one came from the special effects of the time. I don't know that they meant it to be funny ... this one is not funny. It's definitely dark."
Bruce also backed up the scary part, telling people that "You can expect to have a damn scary horror movie. There's no Ash character -- The Evil Book is going to torment a new set of kids, so it's a remake, or a re-imagining or ... a re-whatever word you want to use. It's going to be re-scary."
While the characters are completely different from the original, the story will be using a number of references to the 1981 original, including some trees that messed up Cheryl in that movie. Bruce noted, "They're not terribly well-behaved this time either,"
