Sam Raimi Will Work on an ‘Evil Dead 4′ Script This Summer
From slashfilm, Raimi has long suggested he was going to return to the franchise, but with the remake on the way many fans might have though that was the outlet. Then, a few months back, the writer/director successful stopped another company from making Evil Dead 4. The company suggested Raimi’s lack of interest in the project gave them the right but they ultimately lost, leaving the door open.
If this actually happens, there are many, many questions to answer. Some of which, we assume, will be partially answered once Raimi starts doing press for the Fede Alvarez-directed remake out on April 5. The biggest one has to be, will Bruce Campbell– still kicking ass at the age of 54 – once again play Ash? It seems like a foregone conclusion, even if it’s just to pass the torch to a new generation. And will Raimi’s film dovetail with any possible Alvarez sequels? Like I said, many questions.
But Raimi himself said he’s writing the movie this summer and, for Evil Dead fans, that’s incredibly exciting.
