Second Evil Dead Universe Movie Announced

By 04.26.24News

Deadline reports Francis Galluppi, an up-and-coming director best known for his debut crime thriller feature The Last Stop In Yuma County, has been tapped to write and direct a new Evil Dead movie for Ghost House Pictures.

The project is described only as an original story that Galluppi developed and brought to Raimi and team. No word on a plot or who all will be producing, as it’s early days here.

In a statement to Deadline, Rami did tell us, “Francis Galluppi is a storyteller who knows when to keep us waiting in simmering tension and when to hit us with explosive violence. He is a director that shows uncommon control in his feature debut.”

At present, Galluppi’s Evil Dead film is one of two in the works. Earlier this year, Ghost House tapped Sébastien Vaniček(Infested) to co-write and direct a new spin-off for the franchise, as we were also first to report.
