Raimi Once Again Talks Remake & Evil Dead 4

 Raimi Once Again Talks Remake and  Evil Dead 4It happens every so often, ya know? Every time Raimi has a movie coming out during interviews he's inevitably asked The Questions. Will there be an Evil Dead remake and when are we gonna get an Evil Dead 4? Hot on the heels of promoting his stellar new film Drag Me to Hell, Raimi threw us yet another bone.

IGN UK caught up with Sam at SXSW, and the director had this to say about the possibilities.

Concerning a remake:

"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"

Concerning an Evil Dead 4:

"Like any movie it's hard to say if you want to do it or if you don't want to do it until there is a script to talk about," he continued. "So one day I hope to have the time to write a script, and if that happens I'm hoping that Bruce [will be back]"

Yeah, I know. Nothing really new, but still. One can hope, right?

In a recent interview on IGN, Bruce seemed adamant that Evil Dead 4 would be a bad idea. He stated that not only is age a factor but that he doesn't want to create another Indiana Jones Crystal Skull type situation where all that you have left to give is not what the fans are going to really want...he made it sound like there's no way in hell he's gonna star in a sequel because he doesn't want the movie to be a disappointment to himself or to us.
