We’ve been covering the remake of The Evil Dead closely and last week, we revealed certain spoilery details about the characters and elements of the story that director Fede Alvarez wrote with Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody’s character-polishing. If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, we’ve got news of the release date for this remake from the original Evil Dead team of Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert.
MovieWeb has reported that Sony Pictures and FilmDistrict have set a release date for The Evil Dead remake. Mark your calendars for April 12, 2013!
“Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”

Sony Pictures recently agreed to distribute the Evil Dead remake, which is now set to abandon the backwoods of Tennessee (the cabin location of the 1981 original) to shoot in New Zealand next March. The next logical step would call for a release date, which is exactly what Sony/TriStar has done, scheduling the remake for an April 12, 2013 opening.
The original Evil Dead helped launch the careers of director Sam Raimi (the Spider-Man trilogy), actor Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) and producer Robert Tapert (30 Days of Night), who will all produce the remake. More career launching could occur for remake director Federico "Fede" Alvarez, who is making his feature debut, and co-screenwriter Rodo Sayagues, but probably won't make or break Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno), who rewrote the script.

Ghost House Pictures, the company run by Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, is getting ready to shoot a remake of The Evil Dead down in New Zealand, with Fede Alvarez directing from a script he co-wrote. (And one that Diablo Cody revised.) We know that the basics of the story are much like those of Raimi's original The Evil Dead: five young friends go to a remote cabin for a weekend where they are besieged by a supernatural evil. We've had a few details, too, about how this version will differ from the original. I won't recount those above the jump for the spoiler-averse. Along with a repeat of those details below, we've got a report that includes a lot more information about the film. This is also potentially very spoilerish stuff, and it will show just how different the new Evil Dead will be. Put it this way: »

Piranha 3D director Alexandre Aja will helm the big screen version of Joe Hill’s second novel, Horns, for Mandalay Pictures. Hill, by the way, is the oldest son of best selling author Stephen King. There is hope that the film will be shot this coming summer.
After Steven Soderbergh jumped ship from Warner Bros. big screen adaptation of the classic 60s TV spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E due to ‘creative’ differences, and George Clooney exited as well, the studio scrambled to find a replacement. The movie has been stuck in developmental hell for some time, and there was a possibility the film could get shelved again. Now word has come that Guy Richie will helm the film. It is likely that this will be his follow-up to Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. As for casting, it seems every hot male actor under the sun is being sought. »
Bruce Campbell starred in the original 'The Evil Dead', released in 1981.

The shoot is likely to occur in New Zealand, which is familiar territory for
The remake is reported to have a much different tone than the original, giving up the near-slapstick comedy for a more serious take with themes of drug addiction and demonic possession. The »

Sony Pictures has set the remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 horror film Evil Dead (or "The Evil Dead" if you want to be Ocd about it) for April 12, 2013. The original movie centered on five twenty-somethings who headed up to stay in a cabin in the woods (the worst place anyone on Earth can ever be) only to be met with the horrors wrought forth from the Necronomicon (the Book of the Dead). The movie spawned the sequels Evil Dead II (considered to be the best in the franchise) and the goofy horror-action film Army of Darkness, all starring groovy chainsaw-wielding protagonist Ash (Bruce Campbell). Newcomer Fede Alvarez was brought on board to direct the remake after Raimi and producing partner Rob Tapert were impressed by his short film "Panic Attack". Diablo Cody was then hired to revise Alvarez' original script. Last month, Cody told Steve that the remake would be »

Sony Pictures and FilmDistrict have set an April 12, 2013 release date for The Evil Dead remake, which Federico Alvarez is directing. As of now, The Evil Dead is the only movie to claim that release date.
The story revolves around a group of friends who venture up to a remote cabin, where they discover the Book of the Dead.

Production is scheduled to begin in early 2012.

More and more details for the Evil Dead remake are starting to come to life. In my opinion almost too many details are starting to surface before the movie has even begun to shoot. So far we know that the film is going to be written by Fede Alvarez with Diablo Cody doing the script revisions and Ash is not in this film. We also know that director Sam Raimi and his original producers Bruce Cambbell and Rob Tapert are involved. Earlier this week news broke that the crew has already started to show up in New Zealand where the film will be shot. Now read on for the basic plot outline if you don't mind spoilers. ****Beware Spoilers for the Evil Dead remake below**** »
Evil Dead fans waited nearly twenty years in hopes of seeing Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell reteam to bring us Evil Dead IV. What we're getting instead pretty much sums up the state of the modern movie industry in a nutshell: a remake. There's been some good news along the way: Raimi, Campbell, and Rob Tapert are all involved as producers, and Diablo Cody is working on the screenplay, hopefully providing some snappy dialogue for our hapless cabin dwellers. Then there were the more puzzling decisions, such as removing the franchise's core hero, Ash, from the equation. While I certainly didn't envy any poor young actor tasked with filling Bruce Campbell's shoes, the concept of an Ash-free Evil Dead movie left us wondering what exactly this "re-telling" was going for. Well, Moviehole has some rumored new details...quite a few spoiler-heavy details, actually. We don't want to blow the »

This remake has been met with concern and excitement by Evil Dead fans. Even though Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert are behind this remake, fans are still wary. The latest on the story comes from Moviehole with the news that this film will be a serious horror film similar in tone to The Shining:
“The good news is, I guess, this sounds like a good horror movie. Is it the Evil Dead we know and love though? »

The 1981 independent horror movie, The Evil Dead, started with a group of novice movie-makers heading out to a cabin in the woods near Morristown, Tennessee, to make a low-budget movie about a group of college students who spend a weekend in a cabin. They find a book called The Book of the Dead and it unleashes demonic spirits on the group. The movie was initially ignored in the U.S., but would eventually launch the careers of director Sam Raimi (the Spider-Man trilogy), actor Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) and producer Robert Tapert (30 Days of Night), all of whom also worked on the sequels — 1987's Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn and 1992's Army of Darkness.
The trio will reunite to produce the upcoming Evil Dead remake which has a less humble beginning, sporting a director from Uruguay (newcomer Federico "Fede" Alvarez), a script rewritten by an Academy Award–winner (Diablo Cody, »

Sam Raimi’s beloved but intense horror film The Evil Dead was The horror film to see when I was growing up in the eighties, that featured the now iconic cult actor Bruce Campbell in his signature role of Ash. The film also spanned two (even better) sequels that eventually saw the franchises director given a shot at the mainstream.
Going on to make dark action thriller Darkman, critical hit A Simple Plan and of course the Spider-man trilogy, Raimi last year announced plans to produce along, with long-term partner Robert Tapert, a new remake of his first full length film.
Today Sony Pictures have confirmed that they will distribute the film in the Us after the film is completed late next year. Raimi personally handpicked director Fede Alverez to helm the new project, after being impressed with his script for The Evil Dead. Juno and Jennifer’S Body scribe »

The Evil Dead is getting a remake, and not all fans are going to be happy. Even though Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are endorsing this project as producers. Their motives lie beyond the obvious dollar signs and giving a new life to a 28-year old product.
“Amy Pascal and Jeff Blake at Sony and Peter Schlessel at FilmDistrict have always been incredible partners who share our passion for great storytelling as well as our obsession for scaring the pants off the audience,” Tapert told Fangoria.
Even more saddening is the fact that Ash is no longer a character in this reimagining—he is the glue that tried to keep the gang together throughout the first two films when the Necronomicon, a book that can do more than just resurrect the dead, is discovered. Legions of undead want the book back. In Army of Darkness, the book is »
