‘Evil Dead Rise’ Starts Shooting This Year
Rumors of a potential Evil Dead 4 have existed since the release of Army of Darkness way back in 1992. Instead of a film, we were delivered a three season TV show called Ash vs Evil Dead (2015–2018) which continued the story of Ash Williams and his encounters with the Evil Dead. However, a new film is is in development, one of which will sadly lack the devine presence of Bruce Campbell. Lets not get our panties in a twist, Evil Dead Rise is not Evil Dead 4, but a reboot of sorts.
Speaking to Knox News, Campbell revealed that Evil Dead Rise is set to begin filming later this year. Campbells involvement is purely behind the lens though, as he acts a producer for director Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground), and a new cast of folks who will be haunted by the deadites. While the lack of Ash Williams will disappoint some, a new, fresh take on the decades-old franchise may just be what is needed to bring The Evil Dead back from the void.
Lessons have clearly been learned from The Evil Dead remake of 2013, which basically rehashed most of the originals plot, with Rise taking place in more urban surrounding. While Campbell couldn’t share much about the film, he did emphasize that “it’s out of the woods.”
We will learn more as Evil Dead Rise begins production later this year.
