Bruce Campbell Says He Plans to Star in Sam Raimi’s ‘The Evil Dead’ TV Series

Just when “Evil Dead” fans thought they couldn’t get more excited, original trilogy star Bruce Campbell dropped some more news on them.

At Comic-Con last weekend, Sam Raimi announced that he’s bringing “The Evil Dead” to life once more with a TV series while at a panel discussing the movie adaptation of videogame “The Last Of Us,” which he’s producing. He’s planning to write and direct the project with his brother, Ivan Raimi, co-writing. He also mentioned that he was drafting Campbell to topline.

On Sunday, responding a fan’s question on Twitter, Campbell confirmed that he does indeed plan to return to the franchise to star in Raimi’s series.

It’s been more than three decades since the first “The Evil Dead” film spawned. It would go on to inspire two sequels and a 2013 reboot, which Campbell had a post-credits cameo in.
