MTV caught up with Diablo Cody and pressed her for more quotes about her time polishing up the script for The Evil Dead remake.
"It was really important again to the filmmakers that it remain totally grounded in reality and timeless," she said. "They weren't trying to make some hip trendy horror movie full of pop culture references. I really hope people don't think that that's what I was hired to do. I came in and worked on characters and relationships, things like that."
Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are producing The Evil Dead for director Fede Alvarez. No word yet as to when it will begin shooting. It has already been confirmed that this incarnation will not feature an Ash character.
