She’ll appear as a former cop who is initially tracking Ash as the major suspect in a crime, before realizing they all have bigger problems to deal with. Read More »
Ash will fight evil once again, and he’ll have new friends to help him. The original Evil Dead crew is reuniting to create a ten-episode TV show called Ash vs. Evil Dead, in which the square-jawed, sad-sack hero played by Bruce Campbell will once again square off against the risen dead, and probably his own shortcomings. Sam Raimi is directing the first episode of the show, which he co-wrote with Ivan Raimi, Craig DiGregorio and Tom Spezialy.
So Bruce Campbell is coming back, and now we know who’ll be fighting with him. Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo have been cast as supporting players in the Ash vs. Evil Dead cast, and you can read more about who they’ll play below. Read More »

Sorry fans. No matter what Bruce Campbell says, Bruce Campbell says don’t get too excited about Army of Darkness 2. After the actor was recently quoted saying “Yes,” the film will happen, he has now backtracked on that. Campbell now says despite the “random comments” that slip out of his mouth sometimes, the film is not a reality until we hear something from the production company, it’s given a release date or a start date. And, as of yet, none of that has happened.
He also doesn’t seem too hopeful about a sequel to this year’s Evil Dead remake, talking about how director Fede Alvarez (himself a subject of uncertainty regarding the franchise) has moved on to other things.
Listen to Campbell’s quotes below.
