So About That EVIL DEAD 4 Script..
It seems Sam Raimi might have spoken out of turn when he revealed to fans at a Meet the Filmmakers event in London that he and his brother would soon begun work on a script for Evil Dead 4. According to the director the crowd "made him say it"..
Deadites, adjust your expectations for a fourth Evil Dead movie accordingly. Only last night we reported that Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan were to begin working on a script for the third sequel to the groundbreaking horror flick this Summer. Where did we get that idea? Straight from the horse's mouth! They were direct quotes from Raimi from his appearance at a Meet The Filmmakers event promoting Oz The Great And Powerful. But now the director has done some backpedaling, claiming the overanxious crowd egged him on to the point he felt he couldn't say no.
"Those guys made me say that. I am thinking about it but a crowd goes 'Come on Sam, do it!”' so I said 'Okay, I guess I was talking to my brother about it' But I feel like I was pushed into saying that, a little bit. In the hallway today I joked with Ivan 'Get working on that script!' but I really don’t know. I’m afraid that every time I talk about it people get really mad at me when I don’t follow through with it. I would like to work on the script over the summer, that much is true. But the reason to come back and do it again is only that they’re making me, those fans. I was saying to Ivan 'Why do they stay on this thing? Why do they keep at it?' and he said 'They want to make a movie. You’re a filmmaker and your fans are asking you to make the movie. What are you, an idiot? Make the movie!' I guess there’s something I don’t see. It makes sense when Ivan says it… but I didn’t have a tremendous amount of passion until right now to bring to it. I love working with Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert, I have so much fun making those movies, so… but the fans are really forcing me into it."
Well, he does say there's some passion there..still hope? I doubt it. From the way Raimi is talking here I'd say it will be a very long time - if ever - before we get to see Ash wield his boomstick again, and it most likely won't be Bruce Campbell doing the wielding.
