Sam Raimi Announces Evil Dead 4!

Chris Savage

Bruce Campbell Evil DeadWith the Evil Dead remake just around the corner now, I’m pretty sure many of you are wondering if we will ever get to witness a fourth Evil Dead film. As over the years we have heard countless rumors with some suggesting the film will happen and others saying no. So, will Sam Raimi ever give us Evil Dead 4?

Bleeding Cool via recently had the chance to ask Sam Raimi the inevitable question, Will there be an Evil Dead 4? Raimi had this to say;

I would love to make Evil Dead 4. My brother [most likely Ivan, who co-wrote Drag Me to Hell, Army of Darkness and Darkman with Sam] and I plan to work on the script this summer.

What do you guys say? Want a fourth Evil Dead film? What would you like to see happen in the fourth film?

        I sure hope it doesn’t happen. Sam and Ivan have been “working” on the script for years now. Hopefully, he’s just pumped about the remake and ‘ED4’ is just some pipe-dream project. I love the trilogy. I love Sam and Bruce. But we need another ‘Evil Dead’ like we needed Indiana Jones IV and Star Wars prequels. Let the classics be. Lets not mar the series with a substandard sequel. Sometimes it’s best to keep the magic in the past, rather than to try (and fail) to recapture it. Instead, lets see Sam and Bruce tackle a whole new project together. These are creative guys! Don’t limit them to their past work. Lets leave Ash as he was at the end of “Army of Darkness”, and shoot for something new but equally as inspired.

        I’d like it, but it doesn’t sound like it’s offical yet.

        Hope it happens sounds awsome

        So…who else clicked on this article and thought it contained a legit “announcement?” Like Matthew says, Raimi’s been squaking about this for years. Of course he’d LOVE to do another one, look at the following for the first 3 films. Then again, the near-guaranteed success of the upcoming remake might just be enough to tip him and his brother over the edge. If ED 2013 makes bazillions, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Sam and Co. finally dust off the ED4 ideas and get something done. Either way, I’m interested.
