Whether you liked the Evil Dead remake or not, there is no denying that Fede Alvarez delivered the bloody goods. So, what’s next for Alvarez besides more Evil Dead? Well, it appears as if the demons have summoned him once more, and this time he takes his aim at video game adaptation.
According to Deadline, Fede Alvarez is in talks to direct Dante’s Inferno for Universal Pictures. Former Strike Entertainment partners Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing with EA Entertainment vice president Patrick O’Brien.
The protagonist, Dante Aligheri is a knight who with the help of the poet Virgil ventures into the nine rings of hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. In the process, he becomes an unwitting pawn in an ancient war between heaven and hell.
There isn’t much else to go on at this time as it is still very early days. But, do you think Fede Alvarez could pull this off? Sound off below.
