Raimi to direct modern day fantasy story

SamRaimi.jpgSam Raimi is being marked as hot property at the moment as we hear that he's directing a fantasy film aimed at all ages.

Screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift who wrote Freddy vs. Jason are lined up to develop the script for Raimi to direct, unfortunately the title is being kept under wraps for the moment.

The story from The Hollywood Reporter tells us that it looks at a cynical man from New York who is forced to travel to a land that has been untouched by the modern world. There he has to save a village and a Princess from fairy tale creatures that he really didn't believe existed. Meanwhile you know that he will fall in love with the whole world and want to stay there, losing his cynical aspect forever.

Perhaps I'm just too cynical! It's hard to think that Raimi could do anything like this after so long on horror and then comics, although that said is it all that far away from a Spider-Man story?



Raimi is turning into the man of the hour. Appears as though just this week he's been tied to lots of big titles. I'm just looking forward to whatever he does next.
