Evil Dead Rise is an upcoming American supernatural horror film directed and written by Lee Cronin and produced by Robert Tapert, Sam Raimi, and Bruce Campbell. The film serves as the fifth installment in the Evil Dead franchise.



At the SXSW premiere, Fede Álvarez announced that a sequel was in the works.[1][2] In addition, Sam Raimi confirmed plans to write Evil Dead 4 with his brother; it was later specified that this film would be Army of Darkness 2.[3] At a WonderCon panel in March 2013, Campbell and Álvarez stated that their ultimate plan was for Álvarez's Evil Dead 2 and Raimi's Army of Darkness 2 to be followed by a seventh film which would merge the narratives of Ash and Mia.[4] On October 30, 2013, co-writer Rodo Sayagues confirmed to DeadHollywood that he and Álvarez would not return for the sequel.[5] That same month, Álvarez took to his Twitter that the rumor was not true.[6][7] Campbell confirmed that he would reprise his role as Ash, in Army of Darkness 2.[8] Raimi was later confirmed to serve as director on Army of Darkness 2.[9] By November, Campbell expressed doubts in a fourth Evil Dead movie.[10][11] In September 2017, during a panel at Fan Expo Canada, Campbell stated that he believes the only successful future for the franchise is via a premium cable network, citing Ash vs. Evil Dead on Starz as an example.[12]

In November 2018, Álvarez announced that "They're just ideas right now. Nothing to announce officially. We do have a script for Don't Breathe 2. That's the only difference. We don't have a script for Evil Dead 2. But we do have a script for Don't Breathe 2 that we wrote." He also said that "When I tweeted that I was interested in seeing what people prefer. We were having some internal debates about what people would be interested in most. Unfortunately, Evil Dead 2 won. Which, I guess I would have preferred Don't Breathe 2 to win because it's one of my own creations. Obviously Evil Dead has the bigger following."[13]

On July 10, 2019, Raimi discussed the future of the Evil Dead franchise, saying that "We'd like to make another Evil Dead feature and in fact we're working on some ideas right now." Raimi said that he would be interested in making another film with Campbell, however, Campbell earlier claimed that he has retired from the role of Ash. He said another option would be a sequel to the 2013 reboot, however, he is unsure if Álvarez would want to make a sequel at this point because the director is a successful "artist in demand" now.[14] By October, Raimi announced at the New York Comic Con, that a new film is in development. Bruce Campbell will serve as a producer, and will not be the star of the film.[15] In June 2020, Campbell revealed that Lee Cronin was handpicked by Raimi to write and direct the movie, which will be called Evil Dead Rise.[16][17]
