Happy Halloween folks!
In the spirit of the season Variety is reporting a new collaboration between Sam Raimi and Fede Alvarez, the men behind the original 1981 Evil Dead and the 2013 psuedo remake respectively.
There were lots of rumours floating around about both a sequel to the 2013 remake as well as Army of Darkness 2. But instead it looks like they’ve decided to put their heads together on an all new IP.
The new film, entitled A Man in the Dark, is described as such:
The story centers on a trio of teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies and have targeted a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves fighting for survival against a psychopath.
I was actually a big fan of the 2013 Evil Dead and even though the concept for this new film is something we have seen before, I am optimistic that Raimi and Alvarez can do something fun with it.
