Sam Raimi Talks Venom Spin Off And Evil Dead 4

While at SXSW MTV caught up with Sam Raimi to chat to him about his knowledge on the proposed Venom spin-off film, and more questions on the Evil Dead 4.
Venom Spin-Off
“I guess I don’t know about that,” Raimi told MTV News when asked about the “Venom” film. “Do you mean Carnage? Maybe you’re referring to a separate movie?”

“I must be the poorest source of information you’ve come across!” laughed Raimi. “I’m supposed to know, but both those things could be [in production] and I don’t know about it!”

On Evil Dead 4
On Bruce Campbell's Remarks that hes too old to pick up a chainsaw.

“He can dream all he wants. He’s trying to get out of getting back in shape,” he smiled. “I’m going to kick his butt in shape. I’m gonna say ‘get back in the chainsaw!’”

So we asked: was this a strong hint towards the future of the “Evil Dead” series? Will we see Raimi return to that world once more?

“I hope to, yes,” Raimi admitted. “Every time I say I would like to [revisit the films], people say, ‘where the hell is it!?!’ But I’m just glad people are still interested. But yes, I would really like to do [another ‘Evil Dead’ film]. I’ve just got a commitment to make ‘Spider-Man 4’ right now though.”
