Sam Raimi Wants to Drag Me to Hell

A short break between mega-franchises?

by | December 20, 2007 | Comments

Over the past few months, we’ve talked a lot about Sam Raimi‘s busy schedule as a producer, but his directorial follow-up to Spider-Man 3 has remained a mystery — until now, that is.

Variety reports that Raimi will step behind the cameras for Drag Me to Hell, a “supernatural thriller” co-written with his brother Ivan. The report describes the film as a “morality tale about the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse,” and says financing will be handled by Ghost House, the production company Raimi started with Rob Tapert and Mandate Pictures whose previous releases have included 30 Days of Night, The Grudge, and The Grudge 2.

Drag Me to Hell, which the Raimis wrote in the early ’90s after finishing Army of Darkness, will be Ghost House’s first Raimi-directed release. Tapert tells Variety:

“Sam calls it a ‘spook-a-blast,’ a wild ride with all the chills and spills that ‘Evil Dead’ delivered, without relying on the excessive violence of that film. When one has done three very expensive movies, they get used to eating caviar. Sam will have to ponder what it means to come down from the mountaintop for a moment.”

But only for a moment: Variety says Raimi’s next order of business “is expected” to be a little picture called The Hobbit.
