He hasn't planned on making a return...
On the back of news that Disney is moving forward with a sequel to Oz the Great and Powerful, Sam Raimi says that it is not likely to be with him. Raimi told Bleeding Cool that he's not big on returning to direct the next film.
"I haven't planned on directing the sequel," Raimi said. "I did leave some loose ends for another director if they want to make the picture... I was attracted to this story but I don't think the second one would have the thing I would need to get me interested."
Oz opened today, and early estimates have it in the $70 million to $80 million range for the weekend.
