Sam Raimi is coming back to the genre that started him off.
Variety reports that his next movie will be Drag Me to Hell, based on a script written by him and his brother Ivan.
It's being called a "Supernatural Thriller", which means that it's a horror movie they hope makes a lot of money. They're going to be releasing the film through Raimi's Ghosthouse Pictures, and possibly be the first great film to come out of there. Raimi's longtime partner in crime Rob Tabert will be co-producing, and had some good words to say about the project.
"Sam calls it a 'spook-a-blast,' a wild ride with all the chills and spills that 'Evil Dead' delivered, without relying on the excessive violence of that film," Tapert said. "When one has done three very expensive movies, they get used to eating caviar. Sam will have to ponder what it means to come down from the mountaintop for a moment."
"The appeal to Sam on 'Drag Me to Hell' was returning to what he had once done and loved doing,, which was entertaining a very specific group of fans and providing a roller coaster ride for them," Tapert said. "He doesn't have the enormous pressure here that goes with handling a hundreds of millions of dollars franchise."
After this, Raimi is still planned to go to do The Hobbit since Peter Jackson wants nothing to do with it.
