Sam Raimi to return to the director’s chair for an island horror thriller

Though Sam Raimi has been busy as a producer on quite a lot of initiatives lately, the director hasn’t helmed a feature-film since 2013’s OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL. Fortunately, that is about to alter as THR has reported that Sam Raimi will direct a horror thriller set on an island for Columbia Footage.

Not a lot is understood in regards to the untitled mission at this level, but it surely’s being described as a cross between MISERY and CAST AWAY. Color me intrigued. Mark Swift and Damian Shannon, who penned the FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, are set to put in writing the script which relies on their authentic thought. “I’m thrilled to be reunited with Columbia Footage and re-teaming with Sanford (Panitch, Sony’s movement photos group president) and Ange (Giannetti),” mentioned Raimi in an announcement. “I’ve been a fan of Shannon and Swift and now we have discovered the right journey to share with the world.” As thrilling as it’s to think about Sam Raimi again within the director’s chair, for a horror movie no much less, it might nonetheless be a while earlier than the mission involves fruition. Raimi was set to helm a Bermuda Triangle movie for Skydance Productions, which had additionally been scripted by Shannon and Swift, but it surely’s been a while since we final heard something concrete concerning that mission. THR does word that it is nonetheless in improvement, so perhaps we’ll truly see it sometime.

Along with hopefully making a return to directing, Sam Raimi can also be producing a handful of different initiatives, together with a brand new EVIL DEAD film. Earlier this 12 months, Raimi teased that they have been kicking round a number of concepts for an additional installment, and whereas talking on the Rock and Shock conference this previous weekend, EVIL DEAD star Bruce Campbell confirmed {that a} new director has already been chosen. “So we predict now we have a cool premise. We’ve got a brand new filmmaker that Sam Raimi has hand chosen,” Campbell mentioned. “So he’s very concerned in it. Might be concerned within the story. And we’ll attempt and ensure the actors don’t utterly suck. After which we’re gonna make one other one, yeah. There’s numerous tales…creepy books…numerous folks to torment.
