The Evil Dead

ASH VS. EVIL DEAD
DIRECTOR: Sam Raimi
WRITER: Sam Raimi
PRODUCERS: Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell
CAST: Bruce Campbell
NETWORK: Starz
 
Announced at Comic-Con 2014, Writer/Directer Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell announced a television series based on The Evil Dead franchise. Campbell will reprise his iconic cult role of Ash for the series. The new series will be ten 30 minute episodes running on the Starz network in 2015. Rumors of an Evil Dead IV and a sequel to the 2013 remake have been shot down by Campbell as “Internet BS.”
 
Sam Raimi said in a statement: “‘Evil Dead’ has always been a blast,. Bruce, Rob and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash’s lame, but heroic saga. With his chainsaw arm and his ‘boomstick,’ Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there’s a truckload of it.”
 
Bruce Campbell added, “I’m really excited to bring this series to the ‘Evil Dead’ fans worldwide — it’s going to be everything they have been clamoring for: serious Deadite ass-kicking and plenty of outrageous humor.”
 
Raimi was toying with the possibility of crossing over the 2013 remake with the new series, but has backed away from that concept: “That’s something that I said I wanted to see. And I talked to Fede Alvarez, the director of the Evil Dead remake, and even said it at Comic-Con. But the reality is, once you’ve got these showrunners and writers working on this juggernaut, trying to figure out where the season’s going to go, it’s very hard to simultaneously write a combo movie that would fit in with where the series is going to end up at that particular point, and it really would have to coalesce with what the writers are doing in the writers’ room. So even though I said it, realistically, I don’t know how we’d be able to pull it off at this particular moment.”
