The next Evil Dead movie will start production later this year. The news was confirmed by the horror franchise’s star Bruce Campbell, who stated that the movie will shoot in New Zealand.
Campbell gave the update about the new Evil Dead film to Knox News, while promoting a virtual screening of Sam Raimi’s classic original 1981 movie. He also stated that the film will take place “out of the woods” and will instead have a “a modern-day urban setting.”
The new Evil Dead movie will be directed by Irish filmmaker Lee Cronin. In June last year, Campbell stated that the title was Evil Dead Now, and revealed that he wouldn’t be reprising his role as hapless hero Ash. “You could have different heroes, different heroines in this case,” he said. “This one’s gonna be a little more dynamic. We just want to keep the series current. And the mantra, really, is that our heroes and heroines are just regular people. That’s what we’re going to continue.”
