Sam Raimi dropped a bombshell at Comic-Con on the weekend, announcing a TV series based on his classic horror series “Evil Dead” is in the works. Though Bruce Campbell starred in the original trilogy, he was nowhere to be seen – except for that 5-second end credits appearance – in the 2013 remake. Goes without saying then that most assumed he wouldn’t be back for the new TV series either.
Well, surprise!
According to Campbell, the chainsaw-wielding ‘Ash’ will indeed be the headline act of the new “Evil Dead” TV series.
There was talk for a while that Raimi and Campbell were developing a sequel to “Army of Darkness” – the third in the “Evil Dead” series – but it’s possible that the film idea has merged into the TV series proposal.
We’ll likely hear more soon, but for the moment… here’s the Tweet that revealed Campbell’s involvement.
