At the beginning of the month, I mentioned in a post [which can be found here] that Sam Raimi himself mentioned that he and his brother were working on writing on the script for Evil Dead 4. As it turns out, this was false. According to Raimi’s producer/partner Rob Tapert, they were never talking about doing an Evil Dead 4 but actually doing a direct sequel to Army Of Darkness.. I feel that personally, this is kind of awesome, as long as Bruce Campbell comes back- as you can't have a new Army Of Darkness without [the original] Ashley J. Williams. [the famous line "This is my Boomstick" ring a bell?]
Also, since this is going to be done by Sam Raimi [considering this series IS his creation], I hope he sticks to his method of not using CGI like he in his other films.. that's what I liked about Evil Dead. Evil Dead 2, Army Of Darkness and Drag Me To Hell. [Please be aware- I'm not sure if there is CGI in Oz; The Great & Powerful, as I haven't seen the film yet]
[As seen in Army Of Darkness above; pure original make-up effects.. NO CGI]
So, I'll leave this note with the following question.. how do you feel about this little update on what's coming? Are you okay with a direct sequel to Army Of Darkness, or would you have preferred an Evil Dead 4? Let me know! I'd love to hear your thoughts.
