Bloody-Disgusting.com has the scoop from the mouth of great cult director turned great uber-director Sam Raimi (he helmed the Spidey pics… ‘nuff said): he will helm Evil Dead 4, which will include the greatest bad actor (or greatest B actor: you decide): Bruce Campbell.
Raimi will be directing and producing Evil Dead 4, which will star Bruce Campbell as ASH and will also have many of the actors from the previous Evil Dead movies. Raimi says that "This is the project I really want to make. The remake can belong to someone else, but part 4 will be a continuation of the original".
There will also be a remake of the original Evil Dead, though with an entirely different director and cast.
Evil Dead 2 is one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s almost a perfect blend of low budget weird horror flick with laugh-out-loud slapstick comedy. Bruce Campbell’s face shows off a thousand emotions as the tormented Ash, locked away in a woodsy cabin of the damned… things really get going when the furniture starts mocking him and his own hand becomes his mortal enemy (got the picture yet, kids?).
I can’t wait to see the talented and blessed Raimi/Campbell tandem back at it with another Evil Dead installment.
