If you recall, Nerd Approved reported that Sam Raimi had said that he and his brother plan to work on an Evil Dead 4 script this summer and we’re all pretty excited about it.
Well, thanks to Shock Till You Drop, we have more news thanks to an interview they did with Evil Dead producer Rob Tapert at SXSW:
“That would be Army of Darkness 2,” Tapert told STYD. “Everybody calls it Evil Dead 4 but Army of Darkness wasn’t called Evil Dead anywhere except by the fans.”
Well, whatever you want to call it, Rob. We call it one thing. Groovy.
But what does Bruce Campbell think?
Sam threatens this every six months. I’ve heard this a thousand times, because in the back of his mind, he never wants to let go, because he loved making these movies. We all loved making them together. They were a nightmare to make, very difficult, but they lasted the test of time, so he’s not going to let that go, and I’m never going to say ‘no.’ It’ll be me and a walker fighting some other old guy. But that’s what he does and who knows? It may happen.
We really hope it does Bruce.
