B-D have confirmed some small rumblings. They've confirmed that Raimi is in fact planning a return to the horror genre (the question is when). Word hit the net this morning that Sony intends on attempting to bring Raimi back for Spiderman 4 (with the amount of money I'm sure they're willing to throw at him I wouldn't be shocked if he did return), which could delay such a possible return.
It also doesn't help that he's now considering helming The Hobbit, so reports Entertainment Weekly. Whether or not Raimi spends his next three years working on Spidey's next adventure, The Hobbit or a new genre film has yet to be determined - but let's just say that if he officially declines another trip to Queens, NY with the web-slinger and passes on The Hobbit, we might be basking in some new horror madness from Sam Raimi.
