"There is definitely a chance [of a follow-up]. The problem is, we have to stop saying there is a chance, because then there's a headline the next day, 'There's a new movie coming!' and, no!" Alvarez joked to ComicBook.com. "This is what I can tell [you]: [producer] Rob Tapert and [director] Sam Raimi, we're like family. We get together once in a while, we had a great experience making that movie, they gave us a career in this business. We always discuss that and there was some discussion very early on about a sequel and we haven't gotten to write it, we never wrote a script, but we knew where it was gonna go and, at that point, for some reason, it didn't happen. And now it went [the Evil Dead Rise] route."
