Looks like there’ll be no Evil Dead 2 afterall says Jane Levy

August 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

I liked Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead reboot. A lot. In fairness, I expected to really dislike it… but it was fun, furious and gory in ways I hadn’t expected and I came away thinking I wanted a sequel. I still do, especially with the rumours that it would it carry over into the universe of the original Bruce Campbell movies.

But now it seems that I may have a long wait. A VERY long wait, indeed…

But now Bloody Disgusting are reporting that Jane Levy, star of the reboot (above) is saying that it’s probably NOT going to happen: “I don’t think they’re gonna make it. I mean, they’re always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they’re making a TV show. I was like, what?  

“I honestly don’t know, but it doesn’t seem like there’s going to be an Evil Dead 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it.”

However, before all hope is lost, she added: “I think they just like exciting their fans and confusing them.”

So, Raimi is busy with Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness 2 and the Evil Dead TV series… and we’re not sure if or when we’ll see all or any of them.

Groovy? Not really, sadly…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
