Let’s face it, at this point an “Evil Dead 4” movie is looking less and less likely. After all, why would Sam Raimi, who seems to be more businessman than filmmaker nowadays (how many movies does Sammy have on the remake chopping block again?), could make more money and spend less time doing it just to reboot the franchise with a younger director, as he’s been talking about? In this interview with SciFiWire, ol Sam all but kills the idea of a fourth “Evil Dead” movie. And oh yeah, he also talks about wanting to bring Kristen Dunst back to “Spider-Man 4” for God knows why.
Raimi tells SciFiWire ala Dunst and “Spider-Man 4”:
“I’m hoping that she is going to come aboard, and I’ve got a meeting coming up with her,” Raimi said in a group interview last week in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he was promoting his upcoming horror film Drag Me to Hell. “I think she would like to. But I don’t want to speak on behalf of her.”
Oh come off it, Sam. You’re not going to have to convince her of anything. Given how Kristen Dunst’s movies without the word “Spider” or “Man” in the title are doing at the box office nowadays, she should thank her lucky stars someone seems even remotely interested in putting her in a movie. Much less having to convince her to do something. Give me Bryce Dallas Howard’s Gwen Stacy over Dunst’s MJ any day.
Meanwhile, here’s what Raimi said about the “Evil Dead 4” movie:
I don’t have just some ideas written down, but I said that last month, and there was a very negative reaction from the fans: “Why does he keep talking about that movie? Where is that movie?” It’s just because people ask me, but I don’t really have anything at all worked out right now.
Here’s a suggestion, Sam: Next time someone asks you? Just say, “It’s never going to happen, stop asking me about it”, instead of, you know, making up bullshit stories about how you and your bro are writing the script right now, etc etc.
