Starz has given the green light to the latest incarnation of the Evil Dead storyline: A television show written, produced, and directed by the original man behind the franchise Sam Raimi and according to Entertainment Weekly will also star the film original hero Bruce Campbell himself!
“Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its ‘Evil’ grip.”
And Campbell’s thoughts on the project? “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.”
