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.
