October 18, 2019 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Sam Raimi is diving back into horror for the first time since Drag Me to Hell with a film written by the Freddy vs. Jason scripters. THR reports that Raimi will direct a film from Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.

The as-yet-untitled film is set up at Columbia Pictures and while plot details are being kept under wraps, it is being described as “Misery meets Castaway.” This is Raimi’s first horror film since 2009, when he helmed Drag Me to Hell. He previously worked with Columbia for the Spider-Man franchise.

Raimi said in a statement, “I am thrilled to be reunited with Columbia Pictures. I have been a fan of Shannon and Swift and we have found the perfect adventure to share with the world.”
