Once intended to go straight to the HBO Max (now simply known as Max) streaming service, the film has racked up over $100 million at the global box office since its theatrical release on April 21st. A great accomplishment for a movie that cost under $20 million – and this success paves the way for Evil Dead rights holders Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert to move forward with their plan to make a new Evil Dead sequel every two or three years.
Evil Dead franchise creator Raimi handpicked Lee Cronin to write and direct a new Evil Dead movie after seeing his feature directorial debut The Hole in the Ground. The story Cronin crafted for Evil Dead Rise has the following synopsis: A road-weary Beth pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped L.A apartment. The sisters’ reunion is cut short by the discovery of a mysterious book deep in the bowels of Ellie’s building, giving rise to flesh-possessing demons, and thrusting Beth into a primal battle for survival as she is faced with the most nightmarish version of motherhood imaginable.
Although the film is set in Los Angeles, filming actually took place in New Zealand. Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland star as the estranged sisters at the heart of the story. Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, and Nell Fisher play Ellie’s three kids. Anna-Maree Thomas plays Jessica, “an 18 year old girl, who is obsessed with fashion and Instagram. Jessica loves to be the center of attention, although she is smarter than she lets on”.
Campbell doesn’t have an on-screen acting role in Evil Dead Rise, as he has formally retired from playing franchise hero Ash, but he did produce the movie alongside Raimi and Tapert. Evil Dead Rise is a collaboration between Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, and Ghost House Pictures.
