Wow, there has been alot of word going around lately about “Evil Dead 4” and I for one am thrilled about it! It seems that there is a big interview with Sam Raimi coming in the May issue of Empire Magazine where he talks about new film Drag Me to Hell, Spider-Man 4 and yes Evil Dead 4! This is what they had to offer up on on their website about Evil dead 4 in the upcoming interview:
” Hitting shelves now, the May issue of Empire features a Big Interview with Sam Raimi, a long and wide-ranging chat that featured the thrilling revelation that the god of gore has started work on a script for Evil Dead 4. “We’ve got nine pages so far. Every time I’m with my brother Ivan, we write another page of it. It’s in Detroit and in my garage.”
Confirming that he has Bruce Campbell firmly in mind to reprise the iconic role of Ash (“Unless you think I should do it?”), Raimi shared some pointers on what the script has in store so far. “There’s some dialogue. Ash being an idiot. Ash taking some abuse. Some character stuff and then some structure of Act Two. Just other possibilities for things that could happen. It’s ideas, jokes, things we’d like to see.”
It’s still early days for the project then, but if you run into Ivan Raimi, it’s well worth forcing him onto a plane to Michigan.”
Just knowing there is an actual script in the works for this movie puts a smile on my face! I only hope this includes Bruce as the movie’s star you never know with Hollywood these days. Let’s face it though with out Bruce Campbell there is no “EVIL DEAD”!
