Director Sam Raimi said that a fourth Evil Dead is in the works!
While speaking at the San Diego Comic-Con panel for his upcoming horror film, Drag Me To Hell, Raimi said that he’d love to do another Evil Dead film with actor Bruce Campbell and that he’d like to start working on it next week with his brother Ivan Raimi.
“I love working with Bruce Campbell and he’s like Allison [Lohman, star of Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell]. He’s super willing to do anything to make it right. He’s a very funny guy, but mostly he’s got this quality where he will physically do anything to get the shot done right, so I would love to work with Bruce again because I’d love to test those limits. I’d love to make another Evil Dead picture. And actually that’s in the wheelhouse. I’d like to work on it with my brother Ivan [Raimi] when he comes up next week.“
That’s all Raimi revealed about his plans for a new Evil Dead film.
It had been rumored that Raimi wanted to do a follow-up to his original campy horror film trilogy, but there has not been any official plans until now.
The trilogy — Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness — starred popular B-movie actor Bruce Campbell, and judging by Raimi’s comments, he’d love to get Campbell on board for a fourth film. When referring to his brother, Raimi is most likely referring to work on a script for Evil Dead 4, since Ivan co-wrote Army of Darkness with him (Ivan also co-wrote Drag Me To Hell with him).
