BRUCE CAMPBELL TALKS ‘THE EVIL DEAD’ REMAKE…..AGAIN
[from Rich Goellnitz page on Facebook]
Its a given that every single person who talks to Bruce Campbell has to ask him about a potential Evil Dead remake and as huge fans we are going to report on it, even if its non news. Bruce Campbell has once again confirmed that he and Sam Raimi are game to do a remake but if and when ... is still a crap shoot.
He told RabidDoll: "None of us have said no," he said. "I think Sam is always tweaking with the idea. He's joked with a couple of concepts. He has threatened to do it multiple times. He'll put a false statement out just to torment people. We joke that when he's got one eye left and I'm in the old actors' home, that's when we'll do it. But we both have day jobs now. The 'Evil Dead' movies, you really have to lock up about two years of your life for each 'Evil Dead' movie and we don't really have the time right now. Sam says that he will gladly get back on that track, but right now he's on that A-picture train and he's getting a lot more creative freedoms afforded to him with his success. I don't know that he needs to right now. And I'm kinda busy with the No. 1 show on cable. I don't think about it a lot because I'm busy doing other stuff."
The last updates we had on Evil Dead had Sean William Scott playing a young ASH which was quickly debunked and since then its been a complete on again, off again of its happening ... its not happening. Last word we got from Sam Raimi was his brother was tinkering with a script for it.
