Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Sam Raimi will not be returning to helm the remake (which isn't too shocking) but a director has already been lined up to take over the franchise. Federico Alverez will be directing the remake but Sam Raimi will still be serving as a producer for the project (along with Bruce Campbell). A remake of "The Evil Dead" has been in the works for about seven years now. Seann William Scott was at one time rumored to be taking over the role of Ash. I actually think Scott or perhaps Ryan Reynolds could do a good job in the remake. The original "The Evil Dead" starred Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Betsy Baker and was directed by Sam Raimi.
