Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
It wasn't long ago that we learned that Sam Raimi was working on a television project and now we know that the Evil Dead is officially coming to TV this year sometime. Starz picked up the new series which will be officially titled ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. It will be a follow up to Raimi's EVIL DEAD films and will feature an older Ash accompanied by two other characters. Bruce Campbell will be reprising the iconic role.
Cast in the roles that will accompany Ash will be Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo.
Santiago will portray Pablo Simon Bolivar - an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick. Pablo believes in Ash’s heroism even if Ash himself doesn’t.
DeLorenzo will take on the role of Kelly Maxwell - a moody wild child trying to outrun her past. Reluctantly dragged into the fight against Evil with Ash and Pablo, Kelly finds a different kind of family with her fellow Deadite slayers.
Aaron Lam will be producing and Craig DiGregorio will be the writing showrunner as well as executive producer along with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell. Co- executive producing will be Ivan Raimi.
Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, and Tom Spezialy all are writing with Sam set to direct the first episode.
ASH VS EVIL DEAD will be made up of 10 half hour episodes. It will be filmed in New Zealand this spring and premiere on STARZ in late 2015.
We will continue to bring you more on ASH VS. EVIL DEAD as it unfolds.
