'The Evil Dead' Reboot Logo Is Revealed & Diablo Cody Talks

Above is the new logo for the remake of 'The Evil Dead' with Fede Alverez in the director chair he will also be co writing the script with Diablo Cody. Speaking with collider Cody revealed details about her involvement, which consisted of writing dialogue and character portions, saying:
Cody: I know, honestly I was so excited to do it. I wouldn’t have even gotten involved if Sam [Raimi] and Bruce Campbell hadn’t been involved as well, they’re producing it, and so of course I was like “Alright I have to do this” because I’m such a fan of the original, and the whole original series in fact.
But I was nervous to take the job because I thought “Ugh, I’m gonna get shit for this. People are not gonna like this, because all people know of me is like Juno and they think I’m gonna pollute Evil Dead with like wacky dialogue and cute stuff and folk music, and it’s like “No, look I understand what this is. I’m interested in storytelling here and making it scary and good and true to the original.” I feel like people will hopefully seeYoung Adult and go “Oh, okay that’s a horrifying movie maybe she could pull it off (laughs).”
