Federico Alvarez Considered To Direct ‘Evil Dead’ Remake – Watch His Short Film ‘Panic Attack’
We just posted news on the Evil Dead remake an hour ago and now some other news has dropped. Now reports are coming in that Uruguayan filmmaker Federico Alvarez, will direct the fourth installment in the Evil Dead franchise. Alvarez recently made a directing deal with Sam Raimi’s Ghost House pictures when his short film Panic Attack! (Ataque de Panico!), a four minute 48 second short film about an apocalyptic robot attack, became an internet sensation. The Ghost House deal will give Alvarez the opportunity to make his Hollywood debut that is overlooked by Raimi in a mentoring role similar to the one that Peter Jackson served in Neill Blomkamp’s District 9.
The news of him directing the Evil Dead movie hasn’t yet been confirmed and considering he still has to produce his sci-fi film, I’m confident that this is just a rumour. The good news is that the earlier reports claim that the new Evil Dead film will be a a low-budget effort much like the first. The additional good news is that if he is chosen, we know he can do much with little money. Regardless we are guaranteed to have one feature film from Alvarez in the near future. In the meantime you can watch his short film below.
