Why He’s Right For It: This is an attempt to decapitate two birds with one spade.
Both the Terminator and Raimi could do with a return to their independent origins.
Drag Me To Hell was okay, but the frequent comparisons to Evil Dead are wildly undeserved.
It's like comparing a poodle to a mutt wearing a bandana. They're both pooches, but only one of them is cool.
Drag Me To Hell could never be as imaginative as Evil Dead - it cost way too much for that.
Sam needs his budget sawn-off like a shotgun meeting a chainsaw arm and the Terminator needs imagination like a T-800 needs shades.
So let’s force Raimi to make Salvation 2 using only the change he’s got in his pockets, from a script written by his school mates, with the only aim 'to have a laugh'.
Because Raimi’s Army Of Darkness is one of the most realistic time travel movies to contain the line: “Yo, she-bitch. Let’s go.” which is easily as good a potential catchphrase as 'I'll be back'.
How His Terminator Might Look: John Connor (Bruce Campbell) is surrounded by cyborgs.
Connor injects himself with the blood of a T-1000 (gurning and grimacing as it enters his bloodstream) and finds that he can suddenly turn any part of his body into chainsaws (we'll use plasticine-based special effects for this).
So, he turns both of his arms and part of his forehead into chainsaws and runs at the machines. Fade to black, roll opening credits.
How Much He Could Make It For: Ideally, we'd like him to make it for under $20.
Is He The New James Cameron?: No, but with a bit of hard work he could be the old Sam Raimi.
