Raimi Talks Evil Dead 4
Posted 03.26.09 by Ryan
Last summer, at the San Diego Comic-Con, Sam Raimi joked around that another Evil Dead was in the works and he would start writing a draft soon. Considering Raimi is already at work on the upcoming Drag Me to Hell with Spider-Man 4 waiting next in line, and with Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell telling the Onion A.V. Club that he'd "rather disappoint with a brand new original movie" than do another Evil Dead, it sure seems like Raimi was just enjoying some wishful thinking.
However, Raimi told MTV he's not worried when Campbell says things like "I think there should be an end to everything" in regards to Evil Dead 4:
He can dream all he wants. He’s trying to get out of getting back in
shape. I’m going to kick his butt in shape. I’m gonna say
‘get back in the chainsaw!’
That does sound committed, and rabid Evil Dead fans may hold Raimi to it, however, as Raimi also points out, "I would really like to do [another Evil Dead]. I’ve just got a commitment to make Spider-Man 4 right now though." That means Raimi can start to work on a new Evil Dead in, oh, 2011.
Looks like it's back to wishful thinking.
