Roque Banos has signed on to score the upcoming remake of the horror comedy Evil Dead. The film is written and directed by Fede Alvarez and stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore. The movie is a reinvention of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic about a group of teens who holed up in a remote cabin and discover a Book of the Dead that unleashes demons they cannot control. Raimi is producing the remake with Rob Tapert (Drag me to Hell, The Grudge) and Bruce Campbell through his Ghost House Pictures company. Joseph LoDuca scored the original 1981 film and the two sequels Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. Banos’ best known previous credits include the Christian Bale-starring thriller The Machinist and Jonathan Glazer’sĀ Sexy BeastĀ starring Ben Kingsley. Evil Dead will mark the Spanish composer’s first Hollywood feature to get a nationwide theatrical release. The film will be released on April 12, 2012 by TriStar Pictures.
