According to Deadline Sam Raimi is set to direct the Day of the Triffids remake.
The film will be produced by Ghost House, the partnership between Mandate, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. The deal is seven-figures and I’ve heard it’s the most that Mandate has paid for a project package. Raimi wants to direct it; the original was one of his favorite films as a boy. Raimi and Tapert will board the producer roster, joining Michael Preger, Angry Films’ Don Murphy and Susan Montford, and Mark Gordon, who previously worked with Raimi on A Simple Plan.
Bruce Campbell’s panel at NYC Comic Con was simply awesome. It was hilarious watching Bruce rip his fans a new one for asking dumb questions. Bruce did have some good advice about the movie industry. If you want better movies, stop going to see the crappy ones. This year’s NYC Comic Con marked the 11th time Deadites has seen Bruce in person. Not too shabby for being online since 1997.

The 30th Anniversary Evil Dead poster was designed as a concept/autograph friendly poster that features the cast of the Evil Dead. Anchor Bay was planning on using it for the Ultimate Edition of the Evil Dead 3-disc DVD but was not used.
