Sam Raimi on "Evil Dead" Franchise

Sam Raimi on "Evil Dead" FranchiseSubmit Comment
During the SXSW Film Festival, IGN had the chance to ask director Sam Raimi for his plans for the "Evil Dead" franchise. According to the helmer, he would love for a new director to remake the original.

"I have talked with my partners about having a young director come in and remake Evil Dead," he revealed. "That film was made in 16mm on a shoestring budget and blown up to 35mm. The visual effects are crumby, it was done in mono, not even stereo, let alone 5.1. What you could do with it now would be so much better. I think if you had a new director using the full power of 35mm and 5.1 sound, you could really make a pretty socko presentation. It was always meant for the big screen, but never really seen on the big screen."

There is also the potential for Raimi to direct a fourth installment of "Evil Dead," even though star Bruce Campbell has already said that he would hate to return to a franchise out of fear that it will get fan backlash like "Indiana Jones 4" did.

"I liked Indy 4," said Raimi. "He's probably just trying to get out of getting in shape!"

He continued: "Like any movie it's hard to say if you want to do it or if you don't want to do it until there is a script to talk about. So one day I hope to have the time to write a script, and if that happens I'm hoping that Bruce will change his mind."

of course it can be good...i say bruce campbell should take the risk....my advice for them both is to plan it slowly and take the time for it of course....write a better story for it and make it better than indy 4...scary and funny like evil dead 2 would be pure awesomeness....after everything in army of darkness...things settle down for awhile....and then...out of the blue...it happens AGAIN!!!....why?!!...how will it end this time??....haha that's a silly idea from me

You can never predict how a sequel will do. Indiana Jones 4 sucked, but Die Hard 4 kicked ass. So you never know. I'd love an Evil Dead 4. I like the idea from Evil Dead Regeneration: Ash ends up in a mental asylum, all hell breaks loose, and he has to escape to fight the deadites once again.

synthetic1985 your idea sounds good but they should make sure it's still serous to a point like Shawn Of The Dead and the moments *like when his mom died* and such but keep the laughs coming unless they want all scares that would be good to. I remember seeing Evil Dead when I was a kid sleeping at my friends house.......we stayed up till sunrise lol.

After watching My Name is Bruce this weekend, I am suprised BC has these worries. He pretty much joked about his career the whole movie! He has a good thing going with Burn Notice though, sitting around Miami drinking beer must really suck! Hahaha.

"So one day I hope to have time to write a script" -- sh*t! he needs to get on it sometime soon before they are both to old to do anything
