Remember that 'Evil Dead 4' statement from Sam Raimi a while back? How he told a crowd of fans that he and his brother were planning to work on a script this summer? Remember how he back tracked (a lot) shortly after making said statement? Well, it turns out there's a lot still up in the air, and one aspect is the true nature of this apparent sequel. Instead of being another 'Evil Dead,' a recent update revealed, whether you've been praying for this or not, it'll be 'Army of Darkness 2' instead.
Evil Dead 4
A fanboy frenzy was set off late last week, when news of a possible 'Evil Dead 4' film came about, thanks to Sam Raimi's remark that he was planning on working on the script this summer with his brother, Ivan. Of course, everyone went nuts and immediately marked down a fourth 'Evil Dead' on their calendars. But now comes the part, predictably, where Raimi rains on our parade with a clarification.
However, all hope is not lost yet, fellow deadites.
Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' trilogy is one of the touchstones of cult cinema. From the first no-budget horror film, to the frenetic, slapsticky horror-comedy of the second, to the Dungeons and Dragons and Mark Twain-inspired third film, they are marvelously entertaining movies that inspire very passionate fans. Which is why people keep asking Raimi about a fourth film. Well, he's answered, and suggests he's going to write a new sequel this summer.
