BREAKING NEWS: The EVIL DEAD Remake Lands Distribution!

New postby zombie10 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 4:41 pm

That's right it's now official. Shock Till You Drop.com just announced that Sony Pictures and FilmDistrict have joined forces with Ghost Pictures to a world-wide distribution of the upcoming remake of Sam Raimi'Evil Dead!

Steven Bersch, President of Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, and Peter Schlessel, CEO of FilmDistrict made the announcement earlier today. Schlessel stated "I have been part of the extended Ghost House family for a long time. It's fantastic to continue the relationship as we bring this classic horror film to a new generation of fans.".

Also Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, had this to say "Sony Pictures has a fantastic history collaborating with both Ghost House and Film District and we couldn't be more excited to continue working together on the contemporary adaptation of 'Evil Dead, "Sam and Rob have an extraordinary vision and we can't wait to share this film with audiences in most territories throughout the world."

He of course is talking about Rob Tapert who worked on the original Evil Dead and now coming back to produce with fellow original crew Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. Rob stated "For 30 years, Sam, Bruce and I have been looking for the right home where we could return the deadites to the big screen. 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. Together, we are looking forward to terrorizing a whole new generation."


So with everyone being extremely into this project I would assumed for production to start to pick up and very quickly!Fede Alvarez is to direct and Diablo Cody is doing some script work.
