IGN also asked director Sam Raimi a few questions about the possible reboot of the Evil Dead series.
"I have talked with my partners about having a young director come in and remake Evil Dead," he revealed. "That film was made in 16mm on a shoestring budget and blown up to 35mm. The visual effects are crumby, it was done in mono, not even stereo, let alone 5.1. What you could do with it now would be so much better.

"I think if you had a new director using the full power of 35mm and 5.1 sound, you could really make a pretty socko presentation. It was always meant for the big screen, but never really seen on the big screen"

But what of Evil Dead 4, Raimi's long-mooted sequel to the trilogy. When IGN caught up with star Bruce Campbell earlier in the year, he was hesitant about signing up for a fourth, claiming that the fan backlash to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull should give everyone involved pause for thought.

"I liked Indy 4," Raimi said when we put this to him. "He's probably just trying to get out of getting in shape!

"Like any movie it's hard to say if you want to do it or if you don't want to do it until there is a script to talk about," he continued. "So one day I hope to have the time to write a script, and if that happens I'm hoping that Bruce will change his mind."
Sounds like a remake is more possible than a sequel but anything is possible. What's unbelievable is that Raimi liked Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls.
