IMDB Lists Rob Zombie As The Director For 'The Evil Dead' Remake
IMDB, which is probably the best resource on the internet for movies, has Director/Musician Rob Zombie listed as the director for The Evil Dead remake. Although a great resource, IMDB does lack credibility for movies in pre-production. There is no news from Sam Raimi or Bruce Campbell's to support IMDB's claim that Zombie is directing the film. There isn't even a script for that matter. When Sam Raimi last spoke of The Evil Dead remake, he said he wanted a young and aspiring director with a unique vision for the movie. Zombie is neither young nor aspiring since he has a few cult favorite horror films under his belt, including the fan favorite House Of 1000 Corpses. Not to take anything away from Zombie, he is an accomplished independant director, its just that I believe that IMDB's claim is false and I don't want fans to assume that Zombie is helming the movie without some sort of report to back up the claim. Take it for what you will. The rumors may have started when it was reported that Zombie was going to remake Halloween, and somehow got mixed up with a remake of another classic, The Evil Dead. Take IMDB's listing for what its worth, I just don't have as much faith for its movie listings in pre-production. I remember they once had Bruce listed as playing Xander's Uncle in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which never happend and was eventually taken off. We'll probably get more talk of The Evil Dead remake when Sam Raimi's done making that little movie called Spider-Man 3. Click Here to view the IMDB profile on The Evil Dead remake.
