What next for Sam Raimi?

Simon Brew writes:
As the fallout continues over Sony's cancellation of Spider-Man 4, there could be an unexpected upside to director Sam Raimi's departure from the Spider-Man director's chair. It seemed fairly clear that, just with Spider-Man 3, Sony wasn't giving Raimi the freedom to make the film he wanted to make, and as those of us who sat through Drag Me To Hell last year can testify, an unshackled Raimi makes for one of America's most interesting directors.

The upside, therefore, is that it leaves Raimi free to tackle one of the other projects with which he's been linked over the years.

Clearly top of the list for many of us is the long-mooted Evil Dead 4, which Raimi has been working on the script for. Could it be a project he turns to that allows him the control that he clearly wasn't getting with Spider-Man 4?

One thing we'd wager, though: we bet which project Raimi does - and we really hope it's Evil Dead 4 - doesn't end up at Sony...
