Bruce Campbell answered a few questions about the upcoming remake of the horror classic The Evil Dead on Twitter yesterday, revealing that this new version will not contain his iconic character Ash.
Although there could be an element of hype in Campbell’s responses, it does sound as if this remake will be a straight-up horror film, much in the vein of the original as opposed to the comedic tone that the second film and third films in the franchise. Campbell also confirms that the film will be shooting next year.
The film is set to be directed by Fede Alvarez. Cody Diablo has recently done some revisions to Rodo Sayagues’s script.
