There will be no Evil Dead 4, according to the interview at Show West when the restored print of Evil Dead premired. There is a clip of the Q&A hidden on the DVD. Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert are planning somthing they wanna do as a group project, but it won't be Evil Dead. The original ideas for Evil Dead 4 would have picked up from the original ending of Army of Darkness, of Ash trapped in the future. Universal not wanting the third movie to be called Evil Dead and forcing the editting of the movie from 96 to 81 minutes, hurt the movie financially. Since alot of the casuel fans had no clue it was a sequel, and the original ending not being allowed to be released in America due to the studio wanting a happy ending, pretty much killed any chance of a 4th film.
