‘Send Help’ – Sam Raimi Directing Horror Movie for 20th Century Studios!

Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Drag Me to Hell) will be making his return to horror with the upcoming film Send Help for 20th Century Studios, Deadline reports this afternoon.

The master of horror will both produce and DIRECT the horror-thriller!

Deadline details, “Not yet officially greenlighted by the studio, according to our sources, the film is described as a two-hander horror thriller set on an island.”

The website’s report also indicates, “The story is said to fall somewhere between Rob Reiner’s Stephen King adaptation Misery and Robert Zemeckis’ classic Castaway.”

Damian Shannon & Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason, Friday the 13th 2009) wrote the screenplay. Raimi will produce alongside Zainab Azizi under Raimi Productions.

Sam Raimi most recently directed Marvel’s horror-heavy sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but he hasn’t directed a full-on horror movie of his own since Drag Me to Hell. That film was also a return to horror for Raimi back in 2009, and it similarly came in the wake of Raimi putting his own stamp on superhero cinema with his three Spider-Man movies.
