After fans dried their tears following the cancelation of Ash vs Evil Dead (and Bruce Campbell’s official retirement from the franchise), I posted the idea of returning to the remake universe created by Fede Alvarez in 2013’s Evil Dead. Mia (played by Jane Levy), I reminded readers, was fantastic as the lead and would make for an incredible Queen Deadite slayer moving forward.
I even pitched my idea to Alvarez and Levy via Twitter!
Here's my pitch: @GroovyBruce Ash retires at the end of #AVED and passes the torch to @jcolburnlevy Mia for a sequel to @fedalvar 's 2013 masterpiece remake of Evil Dead. Let's get the band back together and keep this party rolling!https://t.co/IUdPTntCOY

Did they listen?
Today, Alvarez posted a poll for his Twitter followers asking which project he should do next; the three choices are Don’t Breathe 2, Evil Dead 2, or quit making movies altogether (we’re hoping that last one is a joke). Since we know Don’t Breathe 2 has indeed been greenlit for a sequel, does Alvarez’s poll mean Evil Dead 2 is, like, a legitimate possibility?
My heart just skipped a beat!
Check out the poll below and add your voice! Early results put Evil Dead 2 way out front; this could actually be the next phase in the franchise. Do it now!
Ok time to ask this. What should I do?

Official Synopsis: Mia (Jane Levy), a drug addict, is determined to kick the habit. To that end, she asks her brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez), his girlfriend, Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) and their friends Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) to accompany her to their family’s remote forest cabin to help her through withdrawal. Eric finds a mysterious Book of the Dead at the cabin and reads aloud from it, awakening an ancient demon. All hell breaks loose when the malevolent entity possesses Mia.
