Sam Raimi to direct The Shadow?

Having recently parted company with Sony over Spiderman 4 , it seems Sam Raimi is upping the ante for a possible adaptation of The Shadow .

Raimi, who has never disguised his intentions to produce a reboot of the cult character, had this to say back in 2007;

"I love the character very much and we're trying to work on a story that'll do justice to the character."

Raimi was previously attached to the project as producer, but with Spider-man out of the picture, the slate is clear for Sam to jump in the directors chair - sweet music surely to those who remember the Alec Baldwin-starring 1994 shambles of an adaptation.

As far as casting goes, we know just the man for the job... *cough* Bruce Campbell *cough*.

Do you want Raimi lurking in the Shadows? Let us know!
