Fans of the Evil Dead franchise have been clamoring for a fourth film for decades. They’ve imagined Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash and they’ve taken comfort in the Evil Dead-style “spookablast” of Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell. But hard news of an actual sequel has been scarce. However, today offers the most promising news yet for Evil Dead 4. Dread Central reports that editor Bob Murawski (Army of Darkness) has gone to Detroit to begin work on the project, which will be “a small indie thing like the first two.” But when star Bruce Campbell was questioned by a fan on Twitter about the project’s veracity, he responded, “Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.”
I believe the correct response to that news is “Groovy.” Hit the jump for my thoughts on the sequel.
