Bruce „Ash“ Campbell hat in einem Interview mit Dread Central erste Details zur kommenden Evil Dead-Serie verraten (Spoilerwarnung!) Die Dreharbeiten beginnen in diesem Frühjahr in Neuseeland, Evil Dead vs Ash wird dann irgendwann später im Jahr (ich tippe auf das obligatorische Halloween) gesendet.

ashAsh ist in der Serie anscheinend ein eher runtergekommener Nomade, der mit zwei Sidekicks (Ray Santiago als „Pablo Simon Bolivar“ und Dana DeLorenzo als „Kelly Maxwell“) durch die Gegend zieht und von Deadites genervt wird:

In [the Script] we are introduced to a nomadic Ash, a figure who’s not only haunted by traumatic memories but also terrorized by the unwelcome continuance of Deadite attacks, which have followed him to the myriad Midwestern trailer parks he’s been forced to call home. In an effort to eke out an existence and in keeping with his previous choice of career, the character spends his days working at Ted’s Superclub as a stock room trainee and, in true Ash fashion, his evenings chasing skirt in roadside bars.

Campbell stellt die Serie auch gleich mal direkt in Konkurrenz zu The Walking Dead: „We are competitive with 'The Walking Dead,' like, 'We’ll show those fuckers!' [Our] Deadites are very clever. They not stupid shufflers. They can mimic people; they can drive cars. They’re a fun threat. They ['The Walking Dead'] are right up there [though] with being responsible for the current resurgence [of horror].'“

Dazu kommen ein paar Plotpoints durch das Casting von Jill Marie Jones (American Horror Story) als Polizistin, die Ash für den Mörder ihres Partners hält:

After the grisly murder of her partner, disgraced Michigan State Trooper Amanda Fisher (Jones) sets out to find our anti-hero Ash (original franchise star Bruce Campbell) and prove his responsibility for the crime. But as she soon learns, Ash and his cohorts may be mankind’s only hope against the plague of Evil Dead.

Finde ich alles prima, mit Campbell und Raimi dürfte dabei nichts schiefgehen. Kurz gesagt:
