Recently MTV caught up Raimi at this year's San Diego Comic-Con to promote his new film, "Oz the Great and Powerful," and when the topic of the remake came up, he spoke enthusiastically about the prospects of revisiting the series.
"We have a few more days of photography," said Raimi, who added that he was excited to see it.
As for whether he sees the new film as honoring his original, Raimi said he doesn't approach it that way. "I don't think about it like that. I just think Fede Alvarez has really made a great horror movie," he said. "It's scary. The actors are great in it. It's really gut-wrenching, real low budget and intense."
Sadly, he also confirmed from one last time that Ash will NOT appear in the new "Evil Dead."No, that character’s not in this movie."
Raimi and Bruce Campbell will produce the 2013 version which is said to be high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more...
Jane Levy ("Suburgatory"), Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood), Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) star.
