SDCC 08: Sam Raimi To Do ‘Evil Dead 4’!

Geeks of Doom Invade SDCC 2008

Evil DeadDirector 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).

  4. It’s about time. Or is it to late? Evil dead 2 was my favorite movie ever and I’m just afraid he might ruin 4 just going on most everything Raimi’s done since 2. I still have confidence in Bruce though.

  5. Well, this is a freaking surprise :D

    I’m only hoping that Raimi hasn’t lost its b-movie horror taste for the so much spider-hollywood work…

  6. This is totally cool!

    I was at Comicon and hear about something called Ninja Zombies.

  7. Bruce Campbell will definitely be in this film without a doubt.

  8. I duunno, it’s tempting fate isn’t it? Look at all the classic franchises, there have only been TWO #4’s that have worked.

    Star Trek IV and Thunderball.


    Superman IV? Batman and Robin? Alien: Resurrection? Star Wars Episode I? Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?

    It might be better to let sleeping dogs lie on this one…

  13. Glad to hear that it is Raimi that is going to do this one and not someone else.

  14. My brother and I wrote a script for an Army of Darkness sequel called “Ash, Clean Up In Aisle 4”. We dropped off a copy for Bruce Campbell at his Chicago showing of “My Name Is Bruce” back in November 2008. I still don’t know if he ever got it and or read it. Write to him and ask…who knows, maybe they’ll like it and produce it!
