Despite reports earlier in the week that Fede Alvarez would not be returning to the universe of his Evil Dead reboot for a sequel, the director told one Tweeter, “Don’t believe everything you read online.”

He also went on to clarify the matter with Bloody-Disgusting, saying, “this was a case of things getting lost in translation” adding that “Army Of Darkness 2 is taking a priority and that Evil Dead 2 is very much in development with [writer Rodo] Sayagues and Alvarez still attached.”

You can buy Evil Dead on Blu-ray for £10 or DVD for £7 from Amazon.co.uk.
