Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Sam Raimi has been working on his upcoming television project for quite some time now and it will see the Evil Dead heading to television. Starz picked up the new series which will be 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.
With filming underway in New Zealand, we bring you the very first look at Bruce Campbell as Ash from the upcoming series.
In addition to Ash, we also get our first look at co-stars Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana Delorenzo as Kelly Maxwell.
EW recently spoke with Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi about the new series. Raimi says of Ash:
"He’s the only one stupid enough to really tamper with those spirits. And he does. But he’s also still a really good monster fighter."
Campbell adds about the tone of the show:
“It’s THE SEARCHERS with carnage and mayhem.”
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, and Mimi Rogers as Suzy Maxwell, Kelly's mother.
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 showrunner as well as executive producer along with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell. Co- executive producing will be Ivan Raimi.
Sam Raimi, who will be directing the first episode, is handling the writing duties along with Ivan Raimi, and Tom Spezialy. The show will be made up of 10 half hour episodes.
ASH VS EVIL DEAD is set to premiere this Fall on STARZ.
