EVIL DEAD Director Fede Alvarez To Helm DANTE'S INFERNO Adaptation

Universal has set Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez to bring the Electronic Arts video game (which is itself based on the first part of Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy) to the big screen in live action.



Deadline report that Fede Alvarez will direct a live action take on the Electronic Arts action adventure video game Dante's Inferno for Universal. The game is based on "Inferno", the first canticle of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, (why Universal don't simply adapt that and are going straight for the video game is anyone's guess..but there ya go) and follows the exploits of Dante (reimagined as a Templar knight) as he journeys through the nine circles of Hell to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice from the hands of Lucifer. Jay Basu (Monsters: Dark Continent)is on script duties, with Bruce McKenna (The Pacific) writing an earlier draft.
