Apparently Bruce Campbell, who’d portrayed Ash is the Evil Dead trilogy kind of squashed rumors a while back.
“I think there should be an end to everything,” he responded when asked whether the character of Ash is worthy of more movies. “I mean, did anyone really want ‘Indiana Jones 4?? The answer is no. I’ve taken a poll in about seven theaters now. Of 300 people, three hands go up. You are bound to disappoint.”
So, thus became the reason for MTV begging the question to Mr. Raimi about if he wanted to return to the horror-comedy franchise.
His response: “I hope to, yes,” Raimi admitted. “Every time I say I would like to [revisit the films], people say, ‘where the hell is it!?!’ But I’m just glad people are still interested. But yes, I would really like to do [another ‘Evil Dead’ film]. I’ve just got a commitment to make ‘Spider-Man 4’ right now though.”
Not strong words, but words nonetheless.
Part fours are all the rage. Rambo 4 (Rambo), Indiana Jones 4 (Indiana Jonas and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Die Hard 4 (Live Free or Die Hard), Shrek 4 (Shrek Goes Fourth) is coming out next year and Spiderman 4 (Spiderman 4).

Anyway, for dinosaurs in our near future, check out this post. Back to the subject though, does anybody WANT a fourth Evil Dead movie?
