News: Fede Alvarez Says Evil Dead 2 Could Happen With The Right Story

After several years and numerous movies, director Fede Alvarez says that he's quite possible interested in making a sequel to his version of Evil Dead if they can get a proper story and script together for the project. When the remake went on to gross nearly $100 million worldwide, there were numerous rumblings that we'd either get a direct sequel or a crossover event that would see Ash meet the female star in the next franchise entry. Obviously that never came to fruition and nothing ever became of a sequel. Now that the director has become quite the Hollywood commodity, he's mentioning that a part two might still be possible. When talking to EW, he had this to say:

"Making my Evil Dead was an amazing experience, it was my first film. So, going back at some point will be a possibility. I mean, I'm really good friends with all those guys, with Bruce, and Sam, and Rob (Tapert, who has produced all the Evil Dead movies). So, we always chat about it. The good news — and I think that's what sometimes people don't understand — is, none of those guys will make any of these movies just because they can, just because it's good business. They will only make it if they believe they have some good story to tell. A lot of people say that in this industry, but most of the time it's not true. With those guys, all of us involved in those movies, we will just make them if we believe there's a story that has to be told, and is awesome, and is great, and we believe that it will be better than anything that will be done before in that world. [When] we find that story, when we all agree on what it is, it will probably happen."
