Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
As most of you know, Sam Raimi has been working on a television project which will see the Evil Dead heading to TV this year. Starz picked up the new series which will be officially titled ASH VSt 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. The first teaser trailer for the series has arrived and you can find it below.
ASH VS EVIL DEAD follows 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.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Jill Marie Jones as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.
Campbell also has made it known that the current plan for ASH VS EVIL DEAD is to try and have five seasons.
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.
