Sam Raimi Goes To Hell Before Middle Earth

Sam Raimi has announced that he will be directing the film, Follow Me to Hell, which his brother, Ivan Raimi, and he have also co-written.

"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.", says Producer Rob Tapert. "The appeal to Sam on Drag Me to Hell was returning to what he had once done and loved doing, which was entertaining a very specific group of fans and providing a roller coaster ride for them. He doesn't have the enormous pressure here that goes with handling a hundreds of millions of dollars franchise."

The film is scheduled to begin shooting early next year, and will be followed Raimi directing by the highly anticipated, "The Hobbit."
