Sam Raimi Talks Evil Dead Remake... Again


Sam Raimi once again is talking about an Evil Dead remake. Everytime he turns around he is talking about this project in a different light pretty much confusing the hell out of me. I have no idea whether this film is ever going to get made or not but he definitely likes to talk about it. Is he perhaps gauging our interest? He recently told IGN UK at SXSW;

"I have talked with my partners about having a young director come in and remake Evil Dead," says Raimi. "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. I think if you had a new director using the full power of 35mm and 5.1 sound, you could really make a pretty socko presentation. It was always meant for the big screen, but never really seen on the big screen"

He also revealed that he is still interested in doing an Evil Dead 4 and that he would like to see Bruce Campbell return. Frankly I wouldnt mind an Evil Dead 4 but if they dont bring back the Chin I wont be seeing it. I am just that biased.
