It's hard to believe that after so much chatter and so many promises, the remake of "The Evil Dead" is actually happening. Indeed, the project is set up at Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, with on-the-rise director Fede Alvarez (“Panic Attack!”) at the helm with none other than Oscar winning screenwriter Diablo Cody doing some final touchups on the script. This won't quite be the 'Evil Dead' we all know and love, rather, something promisingly different, but there will be one very, very familiar chin popping up in what is a pretty no-brainer cameo.

A remake or sequel to Sam Raimi's cult favorite "The Evil Dead" has been knocking around for years now, moving in fits and starts but never really getting anywhere. And while we're probably not much closer to it, fans can't help but ask about the film anytime Bruce Campbell or Raimi hit the press circuit. Back in January, the Guardian reported that Raimi's longtime producing partner Rob Tapert said, "we're looking at a script this month. What's interesting about 'Evil Dead' is very few people saw it in the format we made it for, which is for the [movie] theater. I think Sam wants to embrace the ultimate experience in grueling terror."
