Sami Rami & Evil Dead Talk

Below is an article posted on by Chris Tilly, I think it is only a matter of time before the Evil Dead gets remade. UK, March 15, 2009 - As well as getting a couple of titbits of information about Spider-Man 4 during our SXSW Film Festival interview with Sam Raimi earlier today, IGN also discussed plans for the Evil Dead franchise with the director.

According to the horror helmer, he's dead keen to see a new director take on the original.

"I have talked with my partners about having a young director come in and remake Evil Dead," he revealed. "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 ung 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"

But what of Evil Dead 4, Raimi's long-mooted sequel to the trilogy. When IGN caught up with star Bruce Campbell earlier in the year, he was hetant about gning up for a fourth, claiming that the fan backlash to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull should give everyone involved pause for thought.

"I liked Indy 4," Raimi said when we put this to him. "He's probably just trying to get out of getting in shape!

"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 change his mind."

Don't know if I'd like to see an EVIL DEAD without Raimi at the helm

To me, the best thing about evil Dead was that it was low budget and cheesy.

I don't think the movie would have the same appeal with a big budget and A (or B or C) list stars.
