An Evil Dead spin-off movie is apparently in the works. Deadline reports Sébastien Vaniček, a rising filmmaker best known for his horror film Infested (Vermines), has been tapped by Ghost House Pictures to direct.
Vaniček made his feature directorial debut last year with Infested (Vermines), a horror pic first introduced as part of the Critics’ Week sidebar at the Venice Film Festival. Watching as the residents of a rundown French apartment building battle against an army of deadly, rapidly reproducing spiders, the film won Best Picture and Best Director in its North American premiere at Fantastic Fest, and was also invited to the Sitges Film Festival, where it earned a nomination for Best Motion Picture and won a Special Jury Prize.
Plot details are still under wraps. We’ll keep you posted. Bruce Campbell has also confirmed the Evil Dead spin-off today:
