AFM: Sam Raimi Gearing Up ‘A Man in the Dark’ with ‘Evil Dead’ Director Fede Alvarez

In a pre-American Film Market move, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will re-team with “Evil Dead” collaborators Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues on the thriller “A Man in the Dark.”

Good Universe will launch international sales next week at AFM. WME Global will be handling the North American sales.

Alvarez directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Sayagues on last year’s “Evil Dead,” the fourth title in the “Evil Dead” franchise and the first not directed by Raimi. That film grossed nearly $100 million in worldwide box office.

Alvarez is set to direct “A Man in the Dark” and Raimi and Tapert will produce for Ghost House. J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will exec produce. Erin Westerman will oversee the project.

The story centers on a trio of teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies and have targeted a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves fighting for survival against a psychopath.

Raimi’s best known for directing the “Spider-Man” trilogy.

Alvarez is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Karl Austen of Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein. Sayagues is represented by WME and Anonymous Content. Dan Freedman negotiated their deals on behalf of Ghost House Pictures.
