Evil Dead Rise is the next sequel in the franchise, skipping most cinemas and heading straight to HBO Max.
The film will be executive produced by Evil Dead director Sam Raimi and former series protagonist Bruce Campbell (Ash Williams), and was written by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground).
Evil Dead Rise will be a sequel to the series’ original trilogy, following sisters played by Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.
~Sam Raimi.I’m thrilled to bring Evil Dead back to its original home at New Line 40 years after the release of the first film. The company’s history as pioneers of horror speaks for itself. I’m equally excited to be working with Lee Cronin, whose gifts as a storyteller make him the ideal filmmaker to continue the enduring legacy of the franchise.
The film will be streamed via HBO Max in the USA; it will get limited theatrical releases in the UK and France.
Evil Dead The Game will debut on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Windows PC later this year.
