Sam Raimi Trying To Get His Brother Ivan To Help Write 'Evil Dead IV'

The Herald Sun, an Australian newspaper, interviewed Sam Raimi recently in a Spider-Man 3 press junket and Sam touched on Bruce Campbell and Evil Dead IV. When asked about his friendship with Bruce, Sam had the following to say:

"I love Bruce – he is really funny and I always enjoy working with him. We went to high school together and we would make movies as kids and he is one of my oldest friends. He is always torturing Peter Parker."

The next question directed toward Sam was about the possibility of Evil Dead IV in 2008. Here is Sam's response:

"Well I'm trying to get my brother, Ivan, to write the screenplay with me. He wrote Army of Darkness, the third one, with me and we have been talking about another one, but we haven't started work on it."

So that's the first time I've heard of Sam talking about writing the screenplay for Evil Dead IV. Hopefully his comments here is a step in the right direction for the return of Ash.

'My Name Is Bruce 2' Confirmed In New Interview WIth Bruce

IESB had a great interview with Bruce Campbell today at a recent NBC press junket for his new show Burn Notice in which Bruce co-stars. In the interview Bruce states that the producers of My Name Is Bruce already have raised funding for the second film and that My Name Is Bruce 2 will again shoot in Bruce's backyard in Oregon. Also, Bruce says that My Name Is Bruce is in the post-production stage right now with special effects being added so that they are a "high enough grade for theatres". Bubba Ho-Tep is still in the pre-production phase because a script for the film is still not finished. My Name is Bruce will have "tons" of Evil Dead and Bubba Ho-Tep references. Finally, Bruce had the following to say when asked about about a possible Evil Dead IV with Sam Raimi:

"Sam probably didn’t mention the second half of that which is he doesn’t need to right now. We can always make another Evil Dead movie when we are in the “old actors and directors home.” But right now he’s not quite there."

Excellent interview everyone. Bruce also talks about his MacGuyverish role in Burn Notice, those Mysterio rumours, and The Hobbit. You can read the full interview here.

Sam Raimi on 'Evil Dead IV'

Recently Sam Raimi conducted an interview with In it he talks about Spider-man, The Hobbit, other upcoming projects, and more importantly Bruce Campbell. Around the middle of the interview Sam talks about making films with Bruce in highschool, and towards the end he mentions an Evil Dead sequel:

"I would definitely like to make another Evil Dead film with Bruce [Campbell] one day. I don't know when, but I would definitely like to do it and I love working with Bruce."

Honestly, I'm doubtful that it will ever happen. Sam's been mentioning Evil Dead IV for years and nothing's come of it. At least we have My Name is Bruce and Bubba Nosferatu to look forward to. And even if Sam doesn't make Evil Dead IV, his other films will almost certainly have cameos by Bruce.

Oh, and I'm glad the blog is back in action!

Tobey Maguire Says Bruce's Cameo In 'Spider-Man 3' The Best One Yet

Tobey Maguire did an interview with Movies Online a few days ago and had the following to say about his scene with our man Bruce:

"It wasn’t really like ad libbed. There was a different tone at first to the scene. It was kind of more confrontational. And we thought it would be funny -- we were kind of getting along strangely. There were some awkward moments, but I thought it would be a better tone if we were getting along better. You know, Sam is always coming up with gags or different jokes. So I think everybody was throwing some ideas here and there and it did change up a bit. You know, and there is some ad lib in there. That was a lot of fun. And I thought Bruce was fantastic and the best appearance of the three appearances for him in these movies"
