It could be just another case of super Sam playing with our Spidey Senses (heâ€™s been talking about it for years, after all – – my first interview with the man, in 2002, even featured an ‘Evil Dead 4 possibility’ statement; that’s how many years Raimi has been repeating the line), but ya know, if heâ€™s going to lie about starting work on an â€œEvil Dead 4â€ youâ€™d think Raimi would be smart enough to save the bullshittery for post Comic-Con, right?
Comic Con audiences are unforgivable – If Raimi doesnâ€™t deliver on his promise, those fellows will eat him alive next year (literally, the hot dogs are so overpriced at Comic Con â€“ and those guys in Ghostbusters outfits need to eat) and wonâ€™t dare support no â€œGrudge 23â€ of his in the future (er, actually, I still remember going to the Comic Con panel for “Grudge 2″ and there was so few people in the theater; I even sat next to Raimi, so that’s a bad example). If thereâ€™s one place you have to be up front with your audience, itâ€™s Hall H at SDCC.
So, going by that, Sam Raimi is doing â€œEvil Dead 4â€. In fact, he and his brother Ivan are working on the script this coming weekend!
Originally, Raimi was planning to remake the original â€œEvil Deadâ€, but when horror fans sneezed at the suggestion it was quickly dropped. Thank God.
Who wouldnâ€™t love to see Bruce Campbell back as the Boomstick-yielding Ash!?
