Yeah, that statement was in response to someone. I'm not sure how much truth there is in it given that Bruce tends to get his jollies from winding people up.
And when he did a public question thing on Reddit about a month ago he stated that there is no Evil Dead remake or sequel in the works. There was talks of it but then Sam and Bruce realised they didn't really want anything to do with it because Bruce said he is getting a bit too old and too fat to play a heroic icon again.
That mixed with the fact Sam Raimi's schedule is pretty booked up until 2013 with his Wizard of Oz stuff and other things will mean if it does happen it won't be for quite some time.
