Sam Raimi conjures fantasy TV series

Horror thriller Drag Me To Hell, Sam Raimi’s first non-Spidey film since 2000’s The Gift, is currently in pre-prod. But Sam’s not sitting on his hands.

Raimi’s will direct Wizard’s First Rule, a 22-episode weekly fantasy series for Disney & ABC Studios on US TV.

It’s based on Terry Goodkind's bestselling 11-book epic The Sword of Truth, which sees lowly woodsman Richard Cypher transform into a magical leader and set out to defeat a murderous tyrant.

Look out for Wizard’s First Rule on US TV in the Autumn and watch this space for cast new on Drag To Hell.
