Diablo Cody Working on Evil Dead Remake
Diablo Cody (Juno) has signed on to make revisions on the script for the upcoming remake of the cult favorite horror flick The Evil Dead.
Federico Alvarez, who penned the first draft, is directing the film. Though relatively fresh to the movie scene, Alvarez’s alien invasion short “Panic Attack” caught the eye of original Evil Dead director Sam Raimi.
Cody also expressed her confidence in the up-and-comer via Twitter, saying, “Fede Alvarez wrote a brilliant script. My job is easy. Have no fear. (Wait, do have fear.)”
Along with Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are overseeing the project as producers.
