Maybe not so much a remake?

Recently, original Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell went a lot farther, saying at a post-screening Q&A that plans for sequels to both this new Evil Dead series and Raimi’s own movies might eventually merge the two storylines. We couldn’t confirm his quote at the time. At today’s WonderCon panel for the remake, director Fede Alvarez confirmed the ambition to top off his own Evil Dead 2 and Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness 2 with a film that brings the storylines together.

We know that Fede Alvarez is already starting work on an original sequel to his Evil Dead, and we’ve also been told that Sam Raimi is potentially getting to work on Army of Darkness 2. That would be a direct sequel to his last film featuring Campbell’s character Ash, which came out in 1993.

Today at WonderCon, Campbell and Alvarez both talked about the potential sequels to their respective storylines, with Alvarez saying that his ultimate dream would be to make a seventh film that united the Ash narrative from Sam Raimi’s movies with Mia’s story from Fede Alvarez’s new chapter. ”I think seven is a nice number,” said Campbell.

This is all contingent, of course, on the performance of this remake — if this one doesn’t do well, then both Alvarez’s Evil Dead 2 and Raimi’s Army of Darkness 2 might not happen. If it does well enough, we might see more Evil Dead movies than anyone ever expected.
