According to an official press release from Ghost House Pictures, Bruce Campbell's recent ramblings about an Evil Dead remake are not simply the product of his overactive imagination, but cold, hard fact. The film has producers (including original director Sam Raimi), a director (Fede Alvarez), and even an additional writer: Juno and Jennifer's Body scribe Diablo Cody.
Yes, the blogger-turned-fake-stripper-turned-real-screenwriter has signed on to work on the latest draft of the existing screenplay, presumably because the existing screenplay lacked the desired amount of '80s pop-culture references and pithy portmanteaus.
This is in addition to Lamb of God, the film Diablo Cody is pegged to direct sometime in the near future, whenever she's finished writing this script and polishing her Oscar and whatever else Diablo Cody does since she stopped blogging for Entertainment Weekly. Whether or not her brand of hyperactive witticisms will make for a better Evil Dead remake remains to be seen, but considering we're going to get an Evil Dead remake whether we like it or not, you could certainly think of far worse hands to put it in.
