Bruce Campbell has revealed some details about the “Evil Dead” next film. In an interview with News magazine Empire, Bruce Revealed the name and said “It’s called ‘Evil Dead Now,'”
Bruce Campbell played Ash Williams in Sam Raimi’s original horror trilogy of “The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead 2” and “Army of Darkness.” Campbell didn’t appear in the 2013 remake called “Evil Dead,” but he served as a producer. He said he won’t be in the upcoming movie either, and it will feature a lead female character, like the 2013 film. He also appeared as Ash williams in "Ash vs Evil Dead" TV Series.
Campbell also said, “From this point forward, they kind of have to stand on their own. Which is fine. And liberating, You could have different heroes, different heroines in this case. This one’s gonna be a little more dynamic. We just want to keep the series current. And the mantra, really, is that our heroes and heroines are just regular people. That’s what we’re going to continue.”
Cambell revealed that franchise creator Raimi handpicked indie director 'Lee Cronin' and he will write and direct the new feature, which is titled Evil Dead Now.
“Cronin did a horror movie called ‘The Hole in the Ground.’ We’re going to get that sucker out as soon as it’s practical,” Cambell said.
Cronin had been directing horror shorts before breaking out with his feature -length debut “The Hole in the Ground” in 2019. The film went on to gross $3.4 million after debuting at the Sundance Film Festival and continues to find audiences on streaming and video-on-demand platforms.
The full interview will be included in the July edition of Empire magazine, which goes on sale Thursday
