Hail to the King? Again? While touring the press circuit for Oz, the Great and Powerful, director Sam Raimi gave Evil Dead fans something to be excited about in a very brief comment to Bleeding Cool. In response to yet another visit to the franchise that he and life-long Bruce Campbell created three decades ago, Raimi confirmed the following:
"I would love to make Evil Dead 4. My brother and I plan to work on the script this summer."
While we've heard that first sentence time and again from both Raimi and Campbell's camps over the years, the second sentence indicates the director and his brother Ivan Raimi are planning to draft out a fourth installment later this year. Stay tuned for more updates, Maniacs.
To tide fans for now, the remake of TriStar Pictures' Evil Dead is set for April 5, 2013. It will star Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore. Helmer Fede Alvarez led the direction, based on a screenplay he wrote with Rodo Sayagues. Raimi produced.
