Considering that NBC’s “Hannibal” is currently home to some of the most graphic violence imaginable, it’s not surprising to see other splatter-y franchises making a dash for the small screen. The latest? Why, none other than “Evil Dead.”
There’s really nothing to report at this point beyond the headline. While on a panel for Screen Gems’ forthcoming The Last of Us movie, The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi let it slip that he is working on an iteration of Evil Dead for the small screen, and that Bruce Campbell would be involved.
Army of Darkness co-writer, Ivan Raimi will be co-writing this series with Sam. And that’s literally all there is to know at this point.
Are we excited about this? It’s hard to imagine seeing Ash again after all this time, and without the kinetic camerawork that graces Raimi’s movies. But we have to believe this would open up the mythos quite a bit, and that could actually be pretty interesting. There’s no way I’m ready to cry foul at all the potential.
When will we hear more? Hard to say, but watch this space and you’ll know it when we do.
