Bruce Campbell confesses in the Requiem for Ash edition of his paperback reissue of Hail to the Chin 2. Ahead of the book’s release on Sept. 17, we sat down in Part 1 of an exclusive epic interview with the actor to discuss leaving Ash Williams behind and the beginning of his “Act III.”
Bruce Campbell is heading into an exciting phase of his life, what he terms “Act III.” On Sept. 17, he will be releasing the paperback issue of his New York Times bestselling novel, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor.
This isn’t your ordinary reissue. The actor has added over 50 pages of new material in this “Requiem for Ash” edition. In it, he discusses why he left the character that started his career behind after 40 years and some of the highlights of his European tour.
Interview excerpt regarding a new Evil Dead feature film:
Bruce Campbell: We have a writer and a director locked in. I can only say so much. You know how it is because if its bulls*** I get called a liar.
So, look, here’s what I know. We are actively pursuing it, for 2020 making it, there’s a concept but not a script, we don’t know where we are going to shoot it. We are going to shoot it where we have to shoot it, to get the most bang for our buck. That’s pretty straightforward.
New cast, modern day, it will be a continuation of an Evil Dead story, NO ASH. There is a new, young, handpicked director by Mr. Sam Raimi, so folks should be very excited! This ain’t dead.
Ash is on vacation but we have a lot of stories to tell. The same factors will still work in a movie because the Evil Dead premise is there are no superheroes. Its just people fighting demons and that’s it. So, that can translate to men, women, children, old, young, people of color, it doesn’t matter.
We’re going to try and do it like a really cool, modern Evil Dead.
