After a weekend full of forced promises from the mouth of 'The Evil Dead' mastermind Sam Raimi the director, during his dutiful promotions for effects prequel 'Oz The Great and Powerful', has shed a little more light on rumours about the potential rebirth of 'Evil Dead IV'. "I would like to work on the script over the summer," he explains to Bleeding Cool. "That much is true. But the reason to come back and do it again is only that they're making me, those fans... I am thinking about it, but a crowd goes 'Come on Sam, do it!' so I said 'Okay, I guess I was talking to my brother (Ivan Raimi) about it.' But I feel like I was pushed into saying that, a little bit." So nothing is set it stone at this moment but it does seem if the fans keep badgering him they may just get their wish. The new version of Raimi's 1981 original 'Evil Dead' installment will be arriving in US theatres on the 5 April.
"I was saying to Ivan 'Why do they stay on this thing? Why do they keep at it?'" Raimi continues, "and he said 'They want you to make a movie. You’re a filmmaker and your fans are asking you to make the movie. What are you, an idiot? Make the movie!' I guess there’s something I don’t see. It makes sense when Ivan says it… I didn’t have a tremendous amount of passion until right now to bring to it."
