The directors of the new Escape From New York are making it a reboot-sequel. Bruce Campbell wants to work with Sam Raimi on an animated Evil Dead movie. The Mandalorian drops two new posters. Plus, when to expect the final episode of The Flash. Spoilers, away!
Escape from New York
In conversation with ComicBook, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett confirmed their upcoming Escape from New York movie will be a “requel,” presumably ignoring the events of Escape from L.A.
I don’t think we know enough about the movie yet to be able to say anything, but yes ‘requel’ is the idea. There’s no way to remake how great that movie is, would be a fool’s errand to try. So, you know, we’ll try to borrow what we love from it and find a new way to put the package together.
Evil Dead: The Animated Movie
Bruce Campbell confirmed Sam Raimi, Ted Raimi, and himself are “actively pursuing” an animated Evil Dead movie in a new interview with Bloody-Disgusting.
All I can say is we’re actively pursuing it. Sam’s a busy guy. He had a big hit movie, so he’s got a lot on his plate, but he and his brother are actively shaping out the world. It’s one thing to get an animator and say, ‘Hey, animate this!’ You’ve got to know what you’re going to animate. I look forward to it, because my voice hasn’t aged as much as I have.
