Diablo Cody set to write the Evil Dead reboot

14 July 2011

With a reboot to the Evil Dead coming, and with the announcement that Federico Alvarez would take the helm, it has emerged that Jennifer's Body scribe Diablo Cody has come on board to write the screenplay.

In a statement Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell who are producing the reboot said “We are committed to making this movie and are inspired by the enduring popularity and enthusiasm for the Evil Dead series, we can’t wait to scare a new generation of moviegoers using filmmaking techniques that were not available to us thirty years ago as well as Fede bringing a fresh eye to the film’s original elements.”

At the moment, series legend Bruce Campbell who famously played Ash is only involved in the reboot as a producer, but we are sure he'll make a cameo appearance.
