Scott Derrickson is excited for Sam Raimi to take over directing duties for the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel.
Yesterday, it was reported that horror-icon Sam Raimi would be taking a seat in the director’s chair for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness. The news of Sam Raimi taking over the Doctor Strange sequel was met with acclaim, with many fans and industry pundits expressing that the Evil Dead director is the perfect successor to OG Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson.
Scott Derrickson, who left the Doctor Strange sequel early in the year over creative differences, took to Twitter to express how Sam Raimi is a great choice for the Benedict Cumberbatch film.
I’ve worked with Sam Raimi. One of the nicest people I’ve known in the film business, and as a director, a true living legend. What a great choice to take over Doctor Strange.

It’s unclear as to what the creative differences between Scott Derrickson and Marvel entailed, but the filmmaker seems to be on good terms with the studio. Scott Derrickson has stated that he’ll be remaining on the Doctor Strange sequel as an executive producer, meaning he’ll be right beside Sam Raimi’s side should the veteran director need any guidance from the original Doctor Strange helmer.
Previously helming the much beloved Spider-Man trilogy from the 2000’s, the Doctor Strange sequel will be the first film that Sam Raimi will direct since 2013’s Oz: The Great and Powerful. Taking a step away from big-budget superhero films, Scott Derrickson is slated to direct The Breathing Method, a film based on the Stephen King novella of the same name.
