Sam Raimi pretty much put the nail in the coffin when he announced his own The Evil Dead remake, which Ghost House Pictures would produce- but is it possible that we might see Ash once again in Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, which was once almost a “go” over at New Line Cinema? You can still read the astounding treatment exclusively at Bloody-Disgustig by clicking here. Read on for a little tid-bit to get your hopes up. We’re checking into the story to see if there’s any truth.
Comingsoon asked director Ronny Yu, “Any chance you might direct a sequel to “Freddy vs. Jason” if New Line decides to do one?
Yu responded, “Yeah, they’ve been talking about it, and they even talk about bringing Ash [from Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" movies] into the equation, and I thought it’s terrific. It’s almost like an updated version of “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.” If they really want to do it and they want me to do it, I’d love to do it. It would be a lot of fun.”
I don’t see any reason why this can’t happen. If Raimi and co. shy away from using Ash in the ‘Evil Dead’ remake like they’ve claimed they would, then couldn’t Ash still kick some ass over at New Line? We hope so…
