Sam Raimi Talks Spider-Man 4

The AP interviewed Sam Raimi and asked if he’d be doing more Spider-Man sequels:

Along with Maguire, Dunst and other recurring cast members, Raimi is signed on to make Spider-Man 3, due out in May 2007. Raimi is uncertain whether he will stick around to direct future Spider-Man movies if the franchise continues beyond that.

“As long as I’m interested in the character and have a real curiosity toward what happens to him, I know it’s the right picture. And the moment I don’t feel that, when I’m less interested in him, I don’t want to touch it with a 10-foot flag pole, because I’d be the wrong guy. It would be a terrible failure,” Raimi said.

“People wouldn’t like it. I’ve got to be very, very interested to make a great picture, and I want to try to make a great picture out of Spider-Man. So I could only answer that question after the third one.”

In his self-deprecating way, Raimi adds a final thought on his prospects for directing Spider-Man 4.

“Or what might happen is, I make the third one, and I might say, ‘You know what, I’m very interested in making the fourth one,’ and the audience says, ‘We really wish you wouldn’t.’ That’s the other way in which I might not be making the movie.”
