Bruce Campbell has been an integral part of the Evil Dead franchise and this time, he is set to return as the producer. It's about time he gets a rest from destroying minions spawned from hell.
Looks like we all need to gear up for more sleepless nights, thanks to the return of our beloved horror franchise. Yes, we are finally getting a new 'Evil Dead' movie and this was confirmed by none other than horror master Sam Raimi.
Sam was recently present at New York Comic Con to promote The Grudge reboot. He confirmed that Bruce Campbell will not be starring as the chainsaw-wielding character. In fact, he will serve as the producer. Raimi later teased, “There’s more Evil Dead coming.” As reported by Comicbook.
We have all grown up watching Bruce Campbell right from the first Evil Dead movie and now the horror icon is set to return once again to the franchise. However, the face of the Evil Dead will now be behind the camera producing the movie.
Bruce Campbell was recently quoted as saying by Cinemablend: "So we think we have a cool premise. We have a new filmmaker that Sam Raimi has hand chosen. So he’s very involved in it. Will be involved in the story. And we’ll try and make sure the actors don’t completely suck. And then we’re gonna make another one, yeah. There’s lots of stories…creepy books…lots of people to torment."
For all those hardcore fans, it is sad to see Bruce not play the part once again. But honestly, the legendary actor has given us some of the scariest horror movies and it is about time he gets a rest from destroying minions spawned from hell.
While speaking to an exclusive interview for Screengeek, Bruce had earlier said: "The only thing that is consistent is I’m not gonna put the chainsaw back on. It’s done, you know. We don’t wanna get what I call “The Star Wars” factor here. I’m leaning over a walker and it’s painted green for they can remove it from the show. I think you know what I’m talking about. There comes a time, it’s time. Because of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, we put everything on the table. We put everything on. We got—I got nothing to give. It’s all right there."
Evil Dead had paved the way for two sequels, a remake, many video games, and three seasons of the epic TV series 'Ash vs. Evil Dead.'
