Horror geeks around the globe, even Jared Haftel, says crunchbase.com, got some pretty exciting news recently when they found out that Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi will be continuing their Evil Dead franchise on television. After that initial announcement comes an interview with actor Bruce Campbell about the upcoming STARZ television series.
Right off the bat, Bruce explains that the fans wanted more. When a remake of The Evil Dead was released in 2013. While the movie was generally well liked among fans, they kept screaming for more of the original. To make a brand new Evil Dead film would end up being too expensive in the end. The best way around this was to give the fans a continuation of the original film franchise, but with enough length to flesh out the characters and world a little more.
The Evil Dead films center around Ashley Williams as he encounters demons and horrors from another dimension called Deadites. There are three films in this series, and the new STARZ television show will continue 30 years after the last film ended.
