Sam Raimi is recently in talks for something new Doctor Strange movie. That means he’s been asked a million times if he’s going to direct another one Evil dead movie and of course – if there will be a Darkman continuation. Although it is not so much the subject of media questions, it does exist Darkman fans who want a sequel. The good news is that Raimi says that Universal is really interested in making a sequel and already has an in-line producer, but so far it has no director.
“Yes, Universal is talking about a Darkman continuation. There is a manufacturer attached. I haven’t heard the story yet or gotten into it, I’ve been so busy with Doctor Strange. But I think it’s great. ” Raimi Said.
It’s pretty exciting news. It seems that Raimi is not closed to the idea of at least reading the script to see what happens. I really hope that he will read it and come back for more Darkman.
Recently, Liam Neeson also expressed interest in returning to Darkman continuation. The time that is incredible now that we hear this news from Raimi.
If Raimi doesn’t direct, it’s not Darkman. If someone tries to imitate Raimi’s style, it’s even worse. However, if Rami’s crazy kinetic action isn’t part of the movie … then again, it’s not a Darkman movie. There are great directors who can do a lot of amazing things, but only Raimi has the recipe for this crazy superhero cake and without it he can’t exist.
Summary for Darkman it went like this:
When the thugs hired by a crime boss lead a vicious attack on Dr. Peyton Wilder (Liam Neeson), leaving him literally and psychologically marked, an emergency procedure allows him to survive. Upon his return, Wilder can find relief only by returning to his scientific work, developing synthetic leather, and seeking revenge against the crime boss. He assumes a vengeful ghost named Darkman, who, with malleable facial qualities, is able to infiltrate and sow terror in the criminal community.
Hopefully Raimi does something small and goes back to her horror roots. Something like Evil dead or Drag me to hell. But after that, it would be great to see Raimi on board Darkman again.
