Default Evil Dead (2013)

Quote:
So that 'Evil Dead' reboot that's happening--because we can't do anything to stop it--has leaked a few plot details. The updated version of Sam Raimi's immortal 1981 classic will be directed by newcomer Fede Alvarez and written by Diablo Cody ('Juno,' 'Jennifer's Body') and will not center around our favorite boomstick-wielding demon fighter Ash; Bruce Campbell will apparently not be in the film at all. Instead, according to recent reports, the new film will structurally mirror the original with a group of kids heading to a cabin in the woods. But they are going to that cabin to help kick one of the girls of her drug habit. Ok. There will also be a subplot of one girl not only discovering the Book of the Dead, but being able to decipher and translate it as well.

Unless the ancient Kandarian culture worshiped hamburger phones, it doesn't make sense that one of Cody's teenage female characters would be able to just pick up and translate the Book of the Dead. I somewhat understand the decision to make one of the characters a recovering drug addict, because her behavior and possible hallucinations as she detoxes would make it difficult to tell whether the supernatural stuff is real or all in her head. Yeah, I understand it, but I don't like it. If we get to the end of the film just to find out that there were no demons and everyone is fine just so they can drive home happily coming up with precious dialogue, I'm going to chainsaw my own face. I don't hate remakes/reboots on principle and I try to remain optimistic on them no matter how much I love the original films, but news like this makes it difficult to avoid dread.
http://my.spill.com/profiles/blogs/t...tails-revealed

i couldn't find a thread about this, if there is one it can be merged

honestly i don't know what to think of this. the remake in general is an unneeded and stupid move but at least they are trying something different

but one the other hand that change miss's the whole point of the plot

what's the problem, just make the male lead an honest attempt to be an iconic leading man , yet not campbell and it could be ok.

I'd still rather them just do a new story.

Nobody will go see this because of three reasons:

a) guys won't want to go see Diablo Cody trash
b) girls aren't going to go see a movie about ancient demons killing hipster teens
c) nerds/geeks/fans that have seen the original won't give a crap about a remake

This movie will be an epic bomb and maybe this will be the last time someone gives Diablo Cody a job.

If this is a new story with different characters, then it really isn't a remake. I'm fine with them making a new film set in the evil dead universe. No one can replace Bruce Campbell's Ash, so I think this is a smart move. As far as one of them being able to decipher the book, who knows, they could be a college student who is studying ancient languages. That's no more unbelievable then anything else in the story.

I wasn't cool with them remaking evil dead, but I'd it's a totally new story like this outline suggests, then I'm interested in seeing how it turns out.

Hollywood put a twist on this remake.This might be very interesting as it gets made.I'll watch it.

1. The general public doesnt give two ****s about writers. Pick any random person off the street and ask them who wrote Juno and they wouldnt have a clue.

2. Horror movies are a date night staple. By this logic alone, EVERY horror movie would bomb. Its pretty sexist of you to think girls dont like horror films. Half the people i know who are horror fanatics are female. And where are you getting this thing about hipsters?

3. Again, if this logic were true, then every remake would have failed.

You aren't on the bandwagon for this film. Cool. I don't blame you. I'm still iffy myself. But there's a difference between stating your opinion and pulling things out of your butt like its the gospel to justify your desire to see the film fail.

Hmmm...not even an Ash cameo?

For shame.

I wonder if theyre going to go for really serious horror, or horror with a little bit of camp and humor. I havent seen Juno or Jennifer's body but I do know Juno is sort of a comedy so maybe Diablo will interject some humor into the remake.

I think they should try it as a straight up horror movie. They are unlikely to catch lightening in a bottle with that "camp horror that works" feel again. Campbell and Raimi are who made that work. I don't have faith in these people to repeat that formula. Best to do a straight horror movie, which this story could be a good one.

It could be a really good Cthonic style horror/ancient evil story. With At the Mountains of Madness getting stalled there's nothing currently in that sub-genre unless you count the Thing prequel.

If Bruce Campbell doesn't want to star then I totally agree with leaving the Ash character out. Had somebody else played Ash and actually did a kickass job, he would still get sh**ted on.

I love the Evil Dead trilogy, but the continuity errors are annoying and it would be nice if a remake trilogy fixed this.

Evil Dead 2 - It came off as a remake because of the right issues with the first film's footage. Ignore the first 10 minute and it works out though.

Army of Darkness - At the end of Evil Dead 2, Ash slays a Deadite and is held as a hero by the knights while he screams in despair, but at the beginning of Evil Dead 3, this doesn't happen and Ash is taken as prisoner instead. UGH!

I don't mind this being remade, especially as Raimi and Campbell are both behind it. And c'mon, Evil Dead is fun, but not particularly scary, and not very funny, at least intentionally. It wasn't until the sequels that they really embraced the campiness and made something really unique. I think a remake done well could be really terrifying.

Yeah but what is Evil Dead without Ash?

You need to have a strong lead who can do what he essentially did, which is 1 in a million shot.

prediction...it will be a "chick" in a predictable hollywood twist.

I would be annoyed if I believed it for a second. I just don't think Raimi is that dumb.

Sounds like "Shrooms".

I think it's a good twist on the story and the last thing i want is yet another boring frame by frame copy of an original. At least they're attempting SOMETHING new. Whether or not it will work is another thing all together, but i'm actually looking forward to this. With a recovering drug addict, there's a lot of room for a great tense and creepy horror flick, and i like the gender role swap.

I doubt the drug plot will be a way to make the demons not real, if anything the drug plot will just make the junky girls experiences with demons that much more unbelievable by her friends when they go to the cabin. They could play around with that a lot.

Diablos actually a good writer Jennifers Body had a good horror atmospheric script it just wasn't translated that well to screen. That being said this film may be okay. I'm really glad they didn't try to reboot or remake this really just have a story within the same universe though.

Ghost House and Mandate Pictures are going BIG with their casting for their forthcoming remake of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead, which begins lensing this March in New Zealand.

Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively that Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Priest, Mirror Mirror) is in final negotiations to play "Mia" in FilmDistrict's reboot aiming for release on April 12, 2013.

*Update* Mia is the LEAD, and is the female version of Ashley J. Williams (Ash), once donned by Bruce Campbell in the original trilogy. To reveal more would ruin the movie.

In this version, the story centers on five friends (David, Natalie, Eric, Olivia, and Mia) holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead with a demonic force unleashed possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival. As we also exclusively reported, there is a drug subplot.

As previously explained, David is a mechanic and is engaged to Natalie. Mia is the friend who is heading to the cabin to detox; Olivia is her best friend/nurse. Eric, presumably, is the kid who unleashes the demons.

After a recent overdose, Mia struggles with her new-found sobriety. She begins acting insane, so it comes as no surprise that nobody believes her crazy claims of coyote dogs and trees attacking her!

Fede Alvarez directs the redo of Sam Raimi's cult classic 1981 The Evil Dead from his own screenplay co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Revisions were done by Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody.

Man I hope this is more then just a sell out horror flick. Most these remakes are flopping anyways. Who the **** is their audience on this one? 13 year olds who cant buy an R rated ticket and are unaware of the originals? Just cause its a new version doesnt mean the new generation wont be aware of the originals or what made them good. If they want a successful Evil Dead film then make it for the fans who have been begging for pt 4 for over a decade.

Exactly, its not Evil Dead. The Franchise would not have been anywhere near the level it is with cult status/Merchandise/sold out midnight showings if it werent for Ash. Only problem with this film is that its called Evil Dead and doesnt Star Bruce Campbell. If they called it something else or at least had an Ash cameo in the Id be all for it.

To be honest, it's better if the character Ash isn't in this film. Bruce Campbell is Ash, he's easily just as tied to that character as Englund is to Krueger. Maybe even more since he doesn't have makeup covering his face in the films and is easily recognizable on the street.

I don't care what movies they remake anymore, but it's a smart move to keep the character Ash out of this one.
