In an interview with Empire, Bruce Campbell (aka Ash Williams) talked about the latest developments around a new movie. Here’s what Campbell said:
“We’re just getting off the phone with Lee Cronin (Cronin), who is writing and directing the next Evil Dead,”
Campbell confirmed when asked about a possible Evil Dead IV (4). This is what Campbell said:
“It’s called Evil Dead Now. Sam [Raimi] handpicked Lee [Cronin] – he did a cool movie called The Hole In The Ground. We’re going to get that sucker out as soon as practical.”
Just like Fede Alvarez’s 2013 Evil Dead, Evil Dead Now won’t feature Ash, and will, by the looks of things, centre on a female protagonist.
“From this point forward, they kind of have to stand on their own. Which is fine. And liberating,” Campbell says. “You could have different heroes, different heroines in this case. This one’s going to be a little more dynamic.”
Campbell added: “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.
