Evil Dead 4 Looks Like It's Finally on the Way!

March 1, 2013


There's likely no question that has been asked of director Sam Raimi and leading man Bruce Campbell more often in the last two decades than, "Is there ever going to be an 'Evil Dead 4'?" Today, however, the answer to that question looks it could finally be "Yes."

"I would love to make 'Evil Dead 4,'" Bleeding Cool quotes Raimi as having said during a press tour for his upcoming Oz The Great and Powerful (via ShockTillYouDrop.com), "My brother and I plan to work on the script this summer."

The Evil Dead series began in 1981 with the self-proclaimed "Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror" and continued in 1987's semi-sequel/semi-remake Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn, finally concluded (for the time being) with 1992's Army of Darkness. Although the franchise has continued through video games and comic books, hope for a big screen sequel seemed dashed when Raimi announced that he would be producing Fede Alvarez's upcoming remake of the first film, set for release on April 5.

The brother Raimi mentions is likely his older brother, Ivan Raimi, with whom Sam co-wrote Army of Darkness and Drag Me to Hell (among other projects) as opposed to his actor brother, Ted Raimi (who can be seen in a cameo in next week's Oz The Great and Powerful). The Walt Disney Pictures film also features a role for Campbell who, while nothing is confirmed as of yet, it's hard to imagine the horror series continuing without. Regardless, check back for details as soon as they become available.
