Remake ditches Bruce Campbell but adds twenty-something druggies . . .
Yet another remake. This time of the 1981 horror flick of the same name directed by Sam Raimi and starring Bruce Campbell. Campbell won’t be starring in it and is only returning as executive producer and there’s no sign of Sam Raimi.
Instead the movie will be directed by Federico Alvarez with a screenplay by Diablo Cody.
Here’re some plot details:
“Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”
According to Bloody Disgusting:
“The new spin is the motivation behind the trip, with the lead character taking his younger sister to the family’s cabin to help her kick her drug addiction. Without her drugs she becomes insane and difficult to control, which makes it impossible to see that she’s actually possessed.”
Diablo Cody is of course the screenwriter of the highly acclaimed Juno and the not-so acclaimed Jennifer’s Body starring Megan Fox’s body.
