Bruce Campbell Will STAR In the “Evil Dead” TV Series! #SDCC

Info from bloody-disgusting.com:

Back on Friday Sam Raimi broke the news out of the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con that he’s been developing a television series based on his The Evil Dead franchise.

He also explained on the “The Last of Us” panel that he and his brother Ivan, along with Bruce Campbell, are currently writing the “Evil Dead” series.

Late last night some mega news hit while I was fast asleep recharging from yet another massive news outing. Campbell responded to a fan, via Twitter, confirming that the intentions are for him to star in said series.

The Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead remake, which hit theaters in April of 2013, bowed well for Columbia Pictures earning close to $100M worldwide. Said remake is rumored to actually be the third sequel – following The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness – which would eventually tie into the original trilogy. At the end of the movie, they teased Campbell’s return as Ash (below) – does this mean Campbell will play Ash in the new series? Probably. Will it tie into the movie? Hopefully. Will we see another movie? I’d bet on it.

Groovy.

SDCC: Sam Raimi Is Writing An EVIL DEAD TV Series



While announcing the Last of Us movie at the Screen Gems panel at Comic-Con, Sam Raimi dropped a side bit of news: he's writing an Evil Dead TV show, and it's going to involve Bruce Campbell. Ivan Raimi is co-writing.

What does that mean? What is an Evil Dead TV show even about? Is it spinning off from the reboot, or is it a continuation of the original series? There are no other details... right now.

Bruce Campbell and Maisie Williams to Star in Sam Raimi's The Last of Us Film Adaptation - Hardcore Gamer



A trailer was just shown at San Diego Comic Con that has announced further details for the upcoming The Last of Us film adaption. The project will be headed up by Sam Raimi of Spider-man/Evil Dead fame and star Bruce Campbell and Maisie Williams. Williams has been in talks to portray Ellie, with Campbell’s position being unconfirmed, although Neil Druckmann has stated he likes him for Joel.

This will certainly be both Campbell’s and Wlliam’s biggest starring role to date, with the former having an illustrious career as a B-movie actor, TV star and frequent Sam Raimi cohort. Williams is best known as starring as Arya Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Check out the film’s first poster here and our review of the game here.

Tested: How The Evil Dead's Tom Sullivan Mastered Low-Budget Effects



When Sam Raimi went to college at Michigan State, he formed a tight group of filmmaking friends. Scott Spiegel, who wrote Evil Dead 2, bonded with Raimi over their mutual love of The Three Stooges. Bruce Campbell became Raimi’s square jawed leading man, and Rob Tapert would become Sam’s long time producer. Another important member of that filmmaking fraternity was Tom Sullivan, who did the make-up effects for The Evil Dead. If Raimi's seminal horror debut is renowned for its low-budget production, it was Sullivan who gets the credit for providing those memorable scares with such limited resources.
