The demon locked in the basement is out. The unexpected bombshell was dropped during an on-stage Q&A. Raimi didn't share any further details, other than he is currently writing the television show based on the iconic 1981 film with the help of Bruce Campbell (Ash) and his brother, Ted Raimi.
The 2013 remake of the Evil Dead, directed by Fede Alvarez, earned close to $98 million worldwide, according to the Box Office, though it included an entirely new cast of characters. With the TV series being based off the original film, it will be quite interesting to see in which direction it will go, and just how much Campbell will be involved—whether by bringing back Ash or just writing.
