That’s right, Bruce Campbell, arguably the greatest B-Movie star, is set to reprise his role as Ash Williams and fend off the evil deadites in a battle for earth in a TV series. The Evil Dead first graced our screens in 1981 and went on to spawn two sequels, all of which have become cult favourites. What it was about the films that enticed audiences in was not only the gruesome special effects and that infamous tree scene, but also the main protagonist; the chainsaw-weilding, boom-stick using king of one-liners Ash.
Thankfully the 10 part series is going to feature Bruce Campbell as the lead role, any other choice probably would have come under fire from fans, and it will show Ash at his boring day-to-day job, telling customers to shop smart at S-Mart. After ignoring his heroic abilities for a while, he decides that it is time he takes on the forces of the necronomicon once again as they threaten to take over the world.
The series is set for a 2015 release and appears to be in good hands as Evil Dead director Sam Raimi is helming the first episode of the series.
