When you hear the name Sam Raimi, you think of one of two things: 'Evil Dead' or 'Spider-Man.' The last thing you might imagine Raimi directing is a film based on a novel by the author who wrote 'Silver Linings Playbook,' but that's exactly what it seems he's planning to do next. Always keep 'em guessing.

In a surprise move, this year's Screen Gems Comic-Con panel turned most of its attentions and energies to a film without a cast, a director, or a script in place: the long-teased 'The Last of Us' feature film. The film was officially announced back in March, and producer Sam Raimi and video game creator Neil Druckmann (who is now officially on board to write the script for the film) popped up at this afternoon's panel to talk about the feature film as part of Screen Gems' future-leaning panel.

Sam Raimi was on hand at Comic-Con 2014 today for the Screen Gems panel, where he discussed his involvement in the upcoming adaptation of the 'Last of Us' video game. But that's not all he discussed: seems like Raimi isn't quite done with 'Evil Dead,' the film franchise that kickstarted his career. While we won't be seeing another Raimi-directed 'Evil Dead' film anytime soon, we will be seeing more 'Evil Dead' ... on the small screen.

Well, that was fast.
Most horror remakes tend to wait a few decades before starting over from square one, but it was announced today that 'The Grudge,' which hit theaters in 2004, is getting rebooted. To give you an idea of just how fresh this reboot really is, producer Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures, who were behind the first two AmericanĀ films, are behind the reboot.

'The Last of Us' was one of the most critically and financially successful video games released in 2013, with many gamers declaring it to be one of the best games ever released in lifespan of the PlayStation 3. So it's not surprising that a movie version is officially in the works. (That sound you just heard is gamers all over the world collectively wincing because Hollywood has a habit of screwing up even the most surefire video game adaptations.)

Just a few weeks ago, Bruce Campbell told a crowd at the Nashville Comic-Con that "yes," he would be returning for 'Army of Darkness 2.' One week later, 'Evil Dead' remake director Fede Alvarez said on Twitter that Sam Raimi would be directing 'Army of Darkness 2.' But now, when cornered at Comikaze in Los Angeles, Campbell admits there's "no reality" to an 'Army of Darkness' sequel and calls any talk otherwise just "internet bulls---."

It feels like we've be getting talk about 'Army of Darkness 2' for...well, the past 20 years since it hit theaters, including just a few weeks ago when star Bruce Campbell "confirmed" his return. But, could it be that a sequel to the cult classic could actually be happening now? For really?

Remember way back when 'Evil Dead' remake director Fede Alvarez, original 'Evil Dead' director Sam Raimi and even Bruce Campbell all sparked rumors of a possible 'Army of Darkness 2,' a sequel to the Campbell-led sequel to the original 'Evil Dead'? Well, apparently this is actually happening, if the actor's latest statements hold any water.

In 1992, Sam Raimi unleashed the third film in his 'Evil Dead' series. Continuing the campier, slapstick feel of 'Evil Dead 2,' 'Army of Darkness' follows Bruce Campbell's Ash as he's transported back to the middle ages to once again fight the evil dead. 'Army of Darkness' delighted fans, but also left them hungry for more adventures with Ash and his legendary boomstick.
21 years later and with rumors of a sequel on the horizon, we look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
