Sam Raimi Talks 'Evil Dead 4'

Monday, March 16th, 2009

As well as getting a couple of titbits of information about Spider-Man 4 during our SXSW Film Festival interview with Sam Raimi earlier today, IGN also discussed plans for the Evil Dead franchise with the director.

According to the horror helmer, he's dead keen to see a new director take on 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.

Against Evil
you know what I hate about Amarica! Kids around the world and young people are really hung up on this Evil shit.I mean come on what happend to the good days when good and Jesus Christ was in the World?
Against Good
Good is dumb. Simple as that. If Jesus was a gun toting, no nonsense taking, explosion summoning badass, he'd be much cooler. He doesn't even turn water into wine anymore. If he did that for me -- I'd follow unconditionally. On topic. A new Evil Dead? I'm game. I'm sure Jesus is all about Evil Dead. wink
thats bullshit
dont listen to this fool, he's an idiot, what are you talkin about man? jesus is all about love and relationship. he's not about explosions and gun toting. what do you know about god any way?
Against people
What does it matter? You don't have to watch it...do you go online seeking out movies with a different moral judgement than yours? I wish I had the time to just browse websites to find things that I disagree with...but instead enter the online world with an agenda. Its extremely lame, you can never force religion on people. Disagree with what people do and say and deal with it. In God's eyes we are the ones who will be judged, you are good, shut up. And by the way, the thing about movies, which are part of the ENTERTAINMENT industry is the point of just that being entertained for a moment, losing yourself in an obvious fictional environment (people don't rise from the dead in THAT sense) just don't watch it. No one will make you. I bet you are also the types that think Harry Potter is poisoning our youth...but its all just fun...quit being lame hard asses.
Against pottery
I'm sick and tired of all this pottery that is infecting the world with its fancy smooth shapes and supple lines. I can't stand it anymore! I want to live in a world in which we exalt plates and vessels made of paper or wicker. C'mon people, enough is enough! Conform to my wishes or I'm RAGE on this board!!!
:)
Thats hilarious..
DOWN WITH POTTE
IM RICKI BOBBY AND IF YOU LIKE POTTERY THAN **** YOU.
idk what to be
To AGAINT EVIL....first of all, its AmErica.
Second, Evil Dead was more succesful in the U.K. than the U.S...

What the @#$% are you all talking about. And how the @#$% did Jesus come into a discussion about the Evil Dead? If he had a chance he would have strapped a chainsaw to his hand and taken it to the @#$%ing Romans! Better yet he would have used to cut the cross down to size! Don't get me wrong Jesus is a good bloke. I know I just finished talking to him and he said 'Tell all these @#$%ers to shut the @#$% up!'.
There you go...
WWJD
What would Jesus Do? Get a medium Popcorn, load it up with butter, and a frozen coke to wash it down. Then sit back, watch the movie and relax. WTF PPL it's just a F^^%&^ movie!
Bring Back Bruc
What the Heck? Is this gospel talk? Heck no this is one of the Biggest Cult Following movies around. One of the best combinations of Horror and Comedy and there has never been another movie like this. If Sam does another Evil Dead its going to ROCK! Screw bringing in someone to remake it. Take the story from where it left off. WE WANT BRUCE!!!!!!! Remember "Good, Bad, I'm the guy with the gun, Give me some sugar baby, and Hail to the King baby" Noone will EVER be able to say those lines like Bruce.
illest
you will not finish your argurement since it consist of opposition why don't you just be natural

****in bible thumpers I can't stand you people, this is a public forum to talk about movies that kick ass and how excited we are about them coming out. It is not a forum to debate religion or bastardize good film just because they don't fit into your moral code. go back to going door to door with watchtower and stay the hell off the internet!!!!!!!!
Back to the Mov
Yes! Bring Back Buce! All you can improve by remaking the evil dead is better special effects, but really, does that even matter? Isn't the movie world full of expensive special effects in crap-upon-crap movies. My nine-year-old is already jaded. You will NEVER DO BETTER than Bruce Campbell in the lead. He is the largest part of the appeal of the original. Plus, the entire remainder of the appeal is that dedicated, talented people made a movie where writing, acting, directing, editing, etc. mean something. Big Sam aught not to forget that. It is why Xena, Hercules, Jack of All Trades, Lunatics: A Love Story, et al. are still so appealing. Plus, isn't it kinda sad when a guy gets a little older, has more money, and decides it's time to rework his earlier masterpieces. Books and movies, seen it before. Sad. --Chip Cook
Gospel man
Ok enough is enough!!!Haif of you are wrong about Jesus,but ones dude is right shut up!!!! And Hebby Jebby stop cusing.

Knights of the
This is a movie forum so it should be about real movies, right? EVIL DEAD, Not passion of the Christ! So all you Cult living Jesus Hippies, Just shut the [email protected]#* UP! Probably don't know what the movie is even about, just that it says"EVIL!" lol. All the INDO-CHRISTIAN religions can suck my balls! If Bruce Campbell is NOT in this movie it's probably not worth watching. p.s. I BIBLE WAS A BIG BOOK OF EXAGERATIONS! GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

Evil christ
The first movie is 3o years old, you provably were a kid at that time that enjoyed this kind of movies, so suck it.

wow
seriously calm down, there is no reason to get all freaked out about this, the religion guy is a jerk but so are most of you for screaming to **** with Jesus, that is kinda lame if you ask me, I love all the Bruce movies, I want to see another evil dead, I really dont want a remake, but none the less there is no reason to scream at Jesus for it, its not his fault that you can't keep it up unless your looking it to the eyes of Bruce, calm down, enjoy life and BACK off of each other.
doesitmatter
prehaps one day we might get a sequel

would be sweet if they shot two films back to back
Justin
Are you freaking serious? Sam Raimi you freaking sellout!!!!!! The only reason your even popular or have any money is because of us fans and Because you Made The Evil Dead series. Thats it. The rest of your work is pretty crappy dude. Give the fans what they want and thank them for making you rich, freaking sellout *******. Evil Dead 4 or no more going to see your movies. Your choice.
Jay
I don't care if Sam Raimi is a sellout. Hey, he's made some really great movies, and it seems he will continue to do so. Yes, there is a HUGE Army Of Darkness/Evil Dead/ Bruce Campbell following that is just dying to see the next movie in the Evil Dead series...I am one of them. This (future, hopefully...) movie will either be made by the collaboration of Sam Raimi (and I believe one of his brothers) and Bruce Campbell or it won't. It would be a shame to not have the next movie made, but things will only be what they will be.
ABEzilla
wtf does jesus have to do with evil dead? go bother the twilight kids and leave us alone!
Xannon
Your story was really ifnrmoative, thanks!

That's really thinking order highest the individual health insurance comparehealthinsur.com health insurance of levitra and nancy bryan heliomeds.com best prices on levitra household insurance life bestlifeinsurpolicy.com life insurance quotes comparison

What is the need? QuotesChimp person may have a great deal to insure, another much less. For example, if your monthly budget is $2,800 and you are looking for life insurance to protect your family for 10 years after your death, chances are you can buy less coverage (and therefore spend less money) than someone whose monthly budget is $6,500.
