evil dead rise filming

Evil Dead Rise, the first new Evil Dead movie since the 2013 remake, is now filming. The new entry in the series hails from The Hole In the Ground filmmaker Lee Cronin, with Evil Dead grandaddies Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell on board as executive producers.

The obsession continues after three films, a remake, video games, comics, a musical, and a TV series, and in a recent Reddit AMA promoting the new version of The Grudge, director Sam Raimi says that a new Evil Dead is currently in the works.
