There Will Be No Ash in ‘The Evil Dead’ Reboot

I’ve spent countless hours debating what I’d want to see in The Evil Dead, the reboot of Sam Raimi’s classic cabin in the woods indie from 1981. The only thing that my brain registers as “cool” would be for the entire film to take place in S-Mart, with Ash passing the torch to some new smart ass.

Unfortunately, Ash (played by Bruce Campbell in the franchise) won’t even make a cameo.

Campbell, already confirmed for a cameo, took to Twitter where he crushed fan’s hopes and dreams dispelled any notion of Ash returning. “Who are they casting for Ash?” asked a fan. Campbell replied: “No Ash character currently,” further stating, “Twitter fails when info gets fragmented. Last statement: ED remake is a re-telling. All bets are off & all involved love the new approach.

It sounds like they really, really, really mean their going to re-tell the story. How do you guys feel about the news?

Fede Alvarez (Federico Alvarez) directs from a screenplay co-developed with Diablo Cody.
