'Evil Dead' Director Fede Alvarez Tapped for 'Dante's Inferno'


Alvarez is signed on to bring the story of Dante's journey into the nine rings of Hell to the big screen in a live action movie.

Fede Alvarez is set to direct a live action adaptation of the Electronic Arts video game "Dante's Inferno" which story based on Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem "Divine Comedy". The "Evil Dead" helmer will develop the project for Universal.

The story revolves around a knight who travels through the nine circles of Hell to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice from the hands of Lucifer. Jay Basu ("Monsters: Dark Continent") is finalizing the script initially drafted by Bruce McKenna ("The Pacific").

Eric Newman and Marc Abraham will produce "Dante's Inferno (2015)" alongside EA Entertainment Vice President Patrick O'Brien.

Alvarez's take on "Evil Dead" was released in March this year. He took over the helming duty from Sam Raimi who directed the previous three installments of the horror franchise. Alvarez is expected to return to his post as a director in the upcoming sequel.
