Deadites vs. an Army of ASHes in DEATH TO ARMY OF DARKNESS



The key to the long-running Evil Dead franchise has been Bruce Campbell's Ash against an army of deadites - but what if Ash had his own army... of Ashes? In the new series Death to Army of Darkness from Dynamite Entertainment, that idea is explored - and these aren't just clones. There's an Ash dog, an Ash girl, and even a lil' Ash.

'DOOM Eternal' Game Director on Drawing Inspiration From Classic Horror: "I Think This Is Our 'Evil Dead 2'"



Hosted by video game veteran Hugo Martin, the first three hours of gameplay were offered Friday at a media-only demonstration for the first-person shooter title. 
"You are feared by the worst evil in the world: Hell. All of hell fears you."

Those words were uttered by DOOM Eternal game director Hugo Martin, who describes the demon slayer in the upcoming first-person shooter game as an "uncompromising" character. "That's what makes him so appealing," he tells The Hollywood Reporter on Friday, midway through a media-only demonstration of the game by publisher Bethesda Softworks. "I think we would all aspire to be so uncompromising and direct; he's not rude, but he doesn't have to be polite."

Martin, who played classic games like Freeway and Kaboom! as a kid, before moving onto Goldeneye in college, studied automotive design early in his career and worked in advertising, film and animation prior to dedicating himself to games.

He describes himself as a "big film buff" in addition to the more predictable label of "hardcore gamer," telling THR that he drew inspiration for DOOM Eternal from the charm of 1987's Evil Dead 2. "That was a big touchstone for us, when you look at something like that, there’s the perfect balance between gore and slapstick humor. It’s not really taking itself too seriously."

Noting that the Evil Dead franchise became what it is with its second installment, Martin declares, "I think this our Evil Dead 2."

Sam Raimi Addresses the Future of the ‘Evil Dead’ Film Franchise During Reddit Chat



From bloody-disgusting.com:

As he revealed to us this past summer, Sam Raimi and company are working on a brand new installment in the Evil Dead film franchise, with Bruce Campbell noting in October that Raimi has hand-picked a “new filmmaker” to take over directing duties. All we can really be sure of at this time is that the film won’t star Campbell as Ash, as he has retired the character.

That’s what Campbell has been insisting, at least. But it seems like Raimi is still holding out hope. During an Ask-Me-Anything chat on Reddit tonight in promotion of The Grudge, Raimi addressed the future of the franchise. “Bruce, Rob [Tapert] and I are working with a young filmmaker who is writing a new Evil Dead story that he will direct,” he again noted.

Raimi continued, “As for me…. I would love to direct a new Evil Dead movie… but I’d really like to do it with Bruce. And he says he’s retired the character. I hope not.”

Innnteresting. What about a sequel to Fede Alvarez‘s remake, you ask? It sounds like that’s still on the table too. “If Fede would write or direct it, yes, in a split second!” Raimi responded to a fan who asked whether or not the 2013 film would ever be getting a sequel.

So it sounds like the Evil Dead team is open to pretty much anything at this point, but what’s important here is that a new film is most definitely in the works right now. And it sounds like it’s not a sequel to Alvarez’s remake, but rather a brand new Evil Dead story.

More as we learn it…
