Sam Raimi Clarifies ‘Evil Dead 4’ Comments… But Is It Happening?


EVIL DEAD fans were hopefully looking at not just Fede Alvarez’ intense-looking reboot this April, but also a possibility of an EVIL DEAD 4, after original director Sam Raimi gave us that little nugget of news from the weekend. While it appears he and brother Ivan will begin work on the script in the summer, he’s since wanted to clear up a few details regarding the project, which will confidently see the great Bruce Campbell back with a boom(stick).

I would like to work on the script over the summer. That much is true. But the reason to come back and do it again is only that they’re making me, those fans… I am thinking about it, but a crowd goes ‘Come on Sam, do it!’ so I said ‘Okay, I guess I was talking to my brother about it.’ But I feel like I was pushed into saying that, a little bit.

I was saying to Ivan ‘Why do they stay on this thing? Why do they keep at it?’ and he said ‘They want you to make a movie. You’re a filmmaker and your fans are asking you to make the movie. What are you, an idiot? Make the movie!’ I guess there’s something I don’t see. It makes sense when Ivan says it… I didn’t have a tremendous amount of passion until right now to bring to it.

So, Raimi now has “a tremendous amount of passion” for a fourth film, which suggests to us that he’s found, while promoting the upcoming OZ THE GREAT & POWERFUL and Alvarez’ effort, there is still a huge devoted following to his gore-filled trilogy. Most of whom want to see what’s next for Ash as he battles the soul-swallowing Deadites of the Necronomicon.

We’ll keep you posted as the project develops, but in the meantime why not checkout our feature, The Wonderful World Of Raimi, in which we look back at seven of the best from the writer and director.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.

    I drop a comment each time I appreciate a article
    on a website or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it is triggered by the fire communicated in the article I
    read. And after this post Sam Raimi Clarifies ?Evil Dead 4′ Comments? But Is It Happening? – The Hollywood News. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or do a few of these comments look like written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Could you list the complete urls of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?
