Starz announced today its latest adventure into original programming. The announcement revealed that it would be bringing back the cult favorite franchise Evil Dead. Not only would they be breathing life into this franchise, but they also announced the beloved [though not so much by yours truly] Bruce Campbell would be reprising the role of Ash.
The series will be entitled Ash vs. Evil Dead and will catch up with the chainsaw-armed hero 30 years after he stopped caring and has neglected his monster-chasing duties. It will have 10 episodes and is set to air on STARZ in 2015. This is what director Sam Raimi had to say about Ash's return to the screen:
Evil Dead has always been a blast. Bruce, Rob, and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash’s lame, but heroic saga. With his chainsaw arm and his "boomstick," Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there’s a truckload of it.So the question is, Fanboys, are you stoked?
