I did not much like the reboot of Evil Dead (my review) so I've not been anticipating the inevitable sequel, even after the reboot teased the return of Ash. But I know some of you are fans, and so what I have to present to you now is good news for me, bad news for you: Evil Dead 2 is probably dead.
Talking to Arrow In the Head Jane Levy, the star of the reboot, says she doesn't think it's ever happening.
I don't think they're gonna make it. I mean, they're always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they're making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs] I think they just like exciting their fans and confusing them. I honestly don't know, but it doesn't seem like there's going to be an EVIL DEAD 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it.
So it's possible that there will be a Levy-less sequel, but why would they get rid of her survivor girl character? But the idea of Raimi and company directing their energy to the TV series rather than a sequel? That makes plenty of sense.
Who knows - maybe Levy will get a call for the TV show. In the meantime it looks likeThe Evil Dead will be possessing the small screen only.
