Sam Raimi Looks Like Hell

Sam Raimi will return to his genre roots to direct the supernatural thriller “Drag Me to Hell” which he co-wrote with his brother Ivan back in the early 90’s reports Variety.

The morality tale about the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse will go into production early next year through Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures.

Producer Robert Tapert says that the film is “a wild ride with all the chills and spills that ‘Evil Dead’ delivered, without relying on the excessive violence of that film”, and confirms that no distributor has yet been set.

After “Drag Me to Hell,” Raimi is expected to take the helm of “The Hobbit” films for New Line and MGM now that Peter Jackson has made it clear he won’t direct.
