Looks like Sam Raimi was holding a little something back when he spoke about his ‘Last Of Us‘ project at Comic-Con. Raimi was excited about his new project, and added a little info that he and his brother, Ivan Raimi were co-writing ‘The Evil Dead‘ TV show with Bruce Campbell. While this is great news for fans of ‘The Evil Dead‘, it managed to get even better. How could this get better? Campbell, who was the star of the original trilogy, confirmed on Twitter that he intends to star in the series!
Fans of the series were excited about the 2013 reboot of the film. After the credits, Campbell made a small appearance as he lifted his head from the darkness, gave us a “Groovy“, then a voice-over with this line from the first film: “I have seen the dark shadows moving in the woods and I have no doubt that whatever I have resurrected through this book is sure to come calling for me.” That small cameo had people thinking maybe he will be returning to the film series, even though there aren’t any other sequels in the works,
It sounds like things are going forward with this TV show. As far as ‘Evil Dead 4‘ or ‘Army of Darkness 2‘, that is not being developed at this time. And so far, director Fede Alvarez has not signed on in an capacity to the show, but Sam, Ivan, and Bruce are definitely on board. Now that being said, this needs a network that will allow the creators to show everything they want to. I’m looking at you AMC, FX, HBO, Showtime. Please don’t let this series get away from you. It has the potential to make millions.
