This news comes to us via Dread Central.

According to the publication, here’s what Bruce Campbell had to say when he was asked about Evil Dead Rise:

I’m very excited about it. It’s going to be really cool and very, very intense. It’s dark, a very adult Evil Dead movie. I wouldn’t call it a yuck fest – it’s pretty tough, pretty hard-hitting stuff. And that’s the variation that you have within the Evil Dead franchise and within horror itself. It’s all about the filmmaker.

Moreover, in a previous interview with, Bruce gave us more insight into the upcoming Evil Dead Rise movie,

Here’s what he had to say about the movie:

It’s [about] a single mom who now has to deal with this book. These days it’s more about the book. That book gets around. Passed along, people try and get rid of it, they try to bury it or destroy it and they really can’t. So this book just keeps popping up, so really it’s just another story of what happens if this book appears in this particular group of people’s lives and how it intersects.

Evil Dead Rise is going to be directed by Lee Cronin and it will star Alyssa Sutherland, Lily Sullivan, Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, and Nell Fisher.

Both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi are serving as executive producers.
