Raimi says fans pressured him into Evil Dead 4


Evil Dead fans have been wanting another sequel to the series ever since, well, Army of Darkness. Even though the Evil Dead remake is headed our way soon, it’s still no Evil Dead without Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell in the spotlight.

Raimi previously said that he and his brother will be working on a script for Evil Dead 4 in the summer. It looks like he spoke too soon, and now he’s saying that the fans made him do it. Oh, Sam…

“Those guys made me say that. 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 about it’ But I feel like I was pushed into saying that, a little bit. In the hallway today I joked with Ivan ‘Get working on that script!’ but I really don’t know. I’m afraid that every time I talk about it people get really mad at me when I don’t follow through with it. I would like to work on the script over the summer, that much is true. But the reason to come back and do it again is only that they’re making me, those fans. I was saying to Ivan ‘Why do they stay on this thing? Why do they keep at it?’ and he said ‘They want 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… but I didn’t have a tremendous amount of passion until right now to bring to it. I love working with Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert, I have so much fun making those movies, so… but the fans are really forcing me into it.”

So the fans first pressured him into doing it, and now his brother Ivan said that he should do it. You can thank his brother for giving Sam more passion than before. And a big thanks to the fans for forcing him to do it, ha! We’ll just have to wait and see if the Raimi brothers will actually work on the script this summer. If not, we’ll just have to keep on forcing him.

Also, will Bruce Campbell be interested in returning as well?

The Evil Dead remake hits theaters on April 5, 2013.
