To the delight of everyone, Sam Raimi says he'd like to write another horror movie

Sam Raimi is involved in a lot of projects these days as a producer and director, but the last time he actually wrote us something was 2009's Drag Me to Hell. He'd like that to change, and in an interview with Shock Till You Drop, he revealed that he and his brother Ivan (his co-writer on Drag Me to Hell) were currently writing a screenplay for a new horror movie, but it's still in the early stages: "It's a very simple story about a character, we're trying to figure out what they want, it's all of the basic stuff - how they come involved with this darker force. There's nothing much to tell [yet], I've got a three-page treatment we're working off of right now." And that is all the fiercely generic red meat we get for now... which we'll all gladly take. It's just nice to know it's happening. (via Shock Till You Drop) Read the rest

It was revealed that Sam Raimi will not be directing a movie based on Blizzard's World of Warcraft after all, perhaps because while doing research, he could not be torn away from his computer after becoming hopelessly addicted to the game. Or he just was too busy making Oz the Great and Powerful. And so the geeks wept. (via The Escapist) Read the rest
