More than just an opportunity to see such a classic film on the big screen, the upcoming events help build our excitement about a new entry in the franchise being developed. Star of the original trilogy and Ash vs. Evil Dead Bruce Campbell shared earlier this year that the new film was titled "Evil Dead Rise," igniting speculation that the new film could be set in a skyscraper.
"The official name is 'Evil Dead Rise,'" Campbell revealed to Diabolique Magazine. "We're getting a new draft in. I don't think anything will happen until 2021. Full bore ahead, we're very excited about it. A whole, new ballgame. No more cabin in the woods."
Whatever fans might be theorizing about the new film, one thing we shouldn't count on is ever seeing Campbell return to reprise his role of Ash Williams. Following the conclusion of the third season of Ash vs. Evil Dead, Campbell made it clear he was leaving the role behind, though he will continue to serve as a producer in upcoming entries being developed.
Stay tuned for details on the Evil Dead franchise.
