We are really hoping that Uruguay win the World Cup this year (sorry England), because director Fede Alvarez has agreed to make a sequel to his Evil Dead reboot if that happens.

While the Girl in the Spider's Web director's recent post on Twitter was likely in jest, he has opened-up about the serious possibility of making a follow-up to his 2013 movie.

"Look, I love those movies," he told Entertainment Weekly. "Making my Evil Dead was an amazing experience, it was my first film. So, going back at some point will be a possibility.



"I mean, I'm really good friends with all those guys, with Bruce [Campbell], and Sam [Raimi], and Rob [Tapert, who has produced all the Evil Dead movies]. So, we always chat about it.

"The good news – and I think that's what sometimes people don't understand – is, none of those guys will make any of these movies just because they can, just because it's good business. They will only make it if they believe they have some good story to tell.

"[When] we find that story, when we all agree on what it is, it will probably happen."

Let's hope that the story comes sooner rather than later – or failing that, Uruguay win the World Cup.

In other Evil Dead news, star Bruce Campbell recently said that he hopes the franchise continues after he "retired" from the role of Ash Williams following the cancellation of Starz show Ash vs Evil Dead.
