Bruce Campbell plays the title character in Ash vs Evil Dead, the Starz-based TV series that Sam Raimi and his crew are concocting as the follow up to Raimi’s three Evil Dead films. But Campbell won’t be the only one bashing deadites in the ten-part series. We know he’s got a couple of supporting characters backing him up. Now, he’ll also be flanked by Jill Marie Jones (Girlfriends and Sleepy Hollow), who will be Campbell’s Ash vs Evil Dead co-star.
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 »
Bruce Campbell will fight evil once again in Ash vs. Evil Dead, a 10-episode TV series planned for broadcast on Starz in 2015. The show basically acts as Evil Dead 4, but will offer more than a single film could. In a huge interview, Campbell has spoken up about some of what the show will do, and given a brief description of two new characters who will join him in the fight against the deadites. Read More »
After years of rumor and speculation, we now know the future of the Evil Dead storyline, and Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are both involved. Starz has ordered ten episodes of an Evil Dead TV series — Campbell will star in Ash vs. Evil Dead, which will serve as the continuation of the three Raimi-directed Evil Dead films, which culminated with Army of Darkness. In other words, this is essentially Evil Dead 4, but as a five-hour TV series. Read More »
The omnibus film Tar is based on the life and work of poet C.K. Williams, but the real attraction of the film is the cast. Jessica Chastain, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Zach Braff, and Bruce Campbell are among the actors who worked with twelve new directors from NYU to create a film that acts as both biopic for Williams and an exploration of his work.
Check out a trailer 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.

At this point we’ve heard about Army of Darkness 2, aka Evil Dead 4, from just about all the principal participants with the exception of one person: writer/director Sam Raimi. Star Bruce Campbell has said (partially joking) that Army of Darkness 2 will happen. Producer Robert Tapert has said as much. And Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez has said that he plans an Evil Dead sequel of his own, with the intent to merge the original and remake story lines down the road.
But until Sam Raimi signs a deal, this is all talk. We’re not at that point yet, but Alvarez does insist that Raimi will make the film. Read More »
Earlier this year, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell produced a remake of their classic horror film, The Evil Dead. At the time, each spoke about wanting to return to the franchise for a fourth time with Army of Darkness 2. Simultaneously, Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez said he wanted to make a sequel to his film and, eventually, the two storylines would merge.
Since then, we haven’t heard much about the potential films except Alvarez attaching himself to a slew of non-Evil Dead projects. That doesn’t necessarily bode well, but Campbell was at Wizard World Nashville and confirmed Army of Darkness 2 was still happening. He even dropped a hint of what it might hold for everyone’s favorite S-Mart employee. Read More »

This weekend saw the release of Fede Alvarez’s The Evil Dead, an even grislier remake of Sam Raimi‘s 1981 horror flick. But did you know that the so-called “original” was a remake of sorts as well?
Granted, Raimi’s film wasn’t a do-over of a beloved classic — rather, it was a feature-length retooling of a short “prototype” film he’d made himself a few years earlier under the title Within the Woods. Future Evil Dead stars Bruce Campbell and Ellen Sandweiss play the main characters, who are disturbed by demonic forces during a weekend in a remote cabin. Sound familiar? Watch the whole thing after the jump.

The remake of Sam Raimi‘s first signature film is now open. After a long period of speculation about the possibility of a fourth Raimi Evil Dead film, or a remake by some other filmmaker, audiences have a chance to see what Fede Alvarez has done with Evil Dead. This remake has some ideas of its own, as it follows a group of young friends to a remote cabin where one plans to detox. But it also has a heavy reliance on Raimi’s set pieces, many of which are firmly entrenched as calling cards for his career.
Beginning with its premiere at SXSW there has been mixed reception to the remake — some love it for the over the top violence, while others (myself included) think that, yeah, the gore is good, but there’s not enough of a movie there. So weigh in on the conversation — let us know what you thought of Alvarez’s Evil Dead, and keep in mind that spoilers are fully encouraged in the comment thread below. Read More »
