Fede Alvarez Clarifies His Rumored Departure From 'Evil Dead 2'


The director of the 'Evil Dead' reboot claims the Rodo Sayagues quote that spread on the internet 'got lost in translation.'


Fede Alvarez is still attached to "Evil Dead 2" despite report to the contrary. "Don't believe everything you read online," so tweeted the filmmaker who directed the first installment of the "Evil Dead" reboot in response to the rumor.

Rumor of the director's exit from the upcoming sequel ran rampant after his writing partner Rodo Sayagues was quoted saying, "I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won't happen. 'Evil Dead 2' is not going to happen, at least not with us involved."

"We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things," he supposedly said in his interview with Gorosito.tv. "I don't know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not part of that project."

But Alvarez insisted the quote "got lost in translation." He explained to Bloody Disgusting, "Rodo meant we're not actually making 'Evil Dead 2' right now because the priority is Sam [Raimi]'s 'Army of Darkness 2.' But the plan of making a sequel to our 'Evil Dead' is very much alive."
