Evil Dead 4 On The Way! (Sort of)

So the biggest piece of news to come out of Comic Con 2008, in my opinion, is one that didn't get a whole lot of news coverage. I didn't see any reports on this until days after the event had ended. Sam Raimi, director of the Evil Dead and Spider Man trilogies, was at Comic Con doing a panel for his upcoming horror movie, Drag Me to Hell. It was at this panel that Raimi said the following:

“I love working with Bruce Campbell and he’s like Allison [Lohman, star of Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell]. He’s super willing to do anything to make it right. He’s a very funny guy, but mostly he’s got this quality where he will physically do anything to get the shot done right, so I would love to work with Bruce again because I’d love to test those limits. I’d love to make another Evil Dead picture. And actually that’s in the wheelhouse. I’d like to work on it with my brother Ivan [Raimi] when he comes up next week.“


So, that's not exactly a firm statement saying Evil Dead 4 (or Army of Darkness 2, depending I guess) is coming our way in 2011, but it's the best piece of news I've heard from the Raimi camp since saying the Evil Dead remake was put on hold. I needs me some more chainsaw wielding, quip spewing, boomstick shooting Bruce Campbell in my life. I just hope that we see this one before Spider Man 4, that's all I'm asking.
