BREAKING HORROR NEWS: Sam Raimi is developing an Evil Dead TV series

Here’s some interesting news for horror fans. Apparently Sam Raimi–director of the original Evil Dead films and other genre gems like Darkman and Drag Me to Hell–is developing a TV series based on his Evil Dead franchise.

According to the website bloodydisgusting.com, Raimi let slip earlier today at the San Diego Comic-Con that he is currently writing the series along with his brother Ivan and original Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell.

The franchise is still floating on a bit of a high since last year’s Fede Alvarez-directed remake–one of the better 2013 horror flicks, alongside Stoker and The Call–earned nearly $100 million worldwide.

Whether an Evil Dead TV series would crush The Walking Dead in the ratings department is another story, of course.

But I, or one, would love to see it try!
