The more I talk about it, the more I think about it, the more sick to the stomach I get- I officially hate the idea of remaking Evil Dead. But I need to get over it, considering I’m going to be bringing you every single piece of news that breaks regarding the remake. So here it begins anew, rumors rumors rumors that won’t end until shooting begins. So here’s ‘Evil Dead’ rumor mill part 3- guess who might play Ash? I think you’ll want to stick a “pie” in Raimi’s face…Movies Online reports:
“It is now being reported by Dheatre.com that actor Sean William Scott is in the running to play Ash in the re-make of Evil Dead. I am not sure whether this is good or bad. I still want Bruce Campbell to play the role, and I dont think anyone can replace him in this role. Sean is a talented actor who plays good quirky roles, but please, nobody can top Bruce Campbell.
Bruce Campbell is rumored to be producing with Sam Raimi, and neither one is expected at this point to direct or be in the movie. I hope that as time passes this turns out to be untrue since both have gobs of talent and could make this movie top notch. The nominal plot involves five vacationing college kids (Ash played by Bruce Campbell, his girlfriend Linda, and their classmates Cheryl, Scott and Shelly) making an unplanned stopover in an abandoned mountain cabin surrounded by impenetrable woods. Before settling in for the night, they come across an ancient-looking occult tome filled with dense hieroglyphics and macabre illustrations, a dagger fashioned from human bones, and a reel-to-reel tape recorder.”
