Bruce Campbell Charms Columbus Underground



Interview Excerpt:

CU: Anybody who follows you on Twitter @groovybruce knows the rumor of an Evil Dead TV show. What are your comments on that?

BC: My comment is: those ain’t rumors, babycakes. We’re in the middle of talking to companies right now. There’s a huge amount of interest in resurrecting old, crabby Ash to get back into the service. Wake up from his trailer park home and go save the world again. It’s going to be a bumpy ride, let me tell you.

Bruce Campbell On Why ‘Evil Dead’ Isn’t As Funny As You Think



Interview Excerpts:

Boston.com: The original “Evil Dead” is a pretty gruesome horror flick, but many of the over-the-top scenes come across as being humorous. Does the film function, in some ways, more as a comedy than a scary movie?

Campbell: You’re completely wrong about that. It’s not a comedy at all. It was never intended to be a comedy. What you have is very extreme situations that will make people laugh. Somebody gets stabbed in the Achilles with a pencil and blood comes gushing out—some people are going to laugh. The dialogue is all straight, it’s delivered straight, which is why the remake was done serious as well. The original “Evil Dead” has very hokey dialogue delivered by very inexperienced actors. You’re going to get some comedy out of that potentially, but there are also some good horrific moments.

The pundits have made it into a comedy, and they’re so wrong. When some of the reviews for the “Evil Dead” remake in 2013 were like, “This movie has no comedy like the original,” it’s like, what are you talking about? A woman got raped by a f-----g tree in the original. To me, that’s not funny.

Boston.com: Will we ever see the return of Ash to either the big or small screen?

Campbell: We’re trying to get Ash as a TV show right now. We’re currently negotiating with a company to get this thing on the air. It’s basically the return of Ash in the modern day, reenlisting to kick some demon ass. So, you know, until the deal is signed, there’s not a whole lot you can talk about. But yeah, we’re actively trying to get that going.

AFM: Sam Raimi Gearing Up ‘A Man in the Dark’ with ‘Evil Dead’ Director Fede Alvarez



In a pre-American Film Market move, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will re-team with “Evil Dead” collaborators Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues on the thriller “A Man in the Dark.”

Good Universe will launch international sales next week at AFM. WME Global will be handling the North American sales.

Alvarez directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Sayagues on last year’s “Evil Dead,” the fourth title in the “Evil Dead” franchise and the first not directed by Raimi. That film grossed nearly $100 million in worldwide box office.

Alvarez is set to direct “A Man in the Dark” and Raimi and Tapert will produce for Ghost House. J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will exec produce. Erin Westerman will oversee the project.

The story centers on a trio of teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies and have targeted a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves fighting for survival against a psychopath.

Raimi’s best known for directing the “Spider-Man” trilogy.

Alvarez is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Karl Austen of Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein. Sayagues is represented by WME and Anonymous Content. Dan Freedman negotiated their deals on behalf of Ghost House Pictures.
