Geeks everywhere are freaking out because director Sam Raimi, who has somehow not lost a drop of geek cred after the musical dance extravaganza that was Spider-Man 3, mentioned Burn Notice darling Bruce Campbell and "another Evil Dead" in the same sentence at Comic-Con. Now, as a result, geeks are reporting that Evil Dead 4 is in the works. Well, let's take a step back now.
It's like someone opened up the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, chanted a little something, and not one but two new possible Evil Dead projects popped out to possess unsuspecting audiences. Zach recently posted about the prospects of a fourth outing with Ash Williams and his demon-obliterating weapon of choice. Thanks to Screen Daily, today I bring you news of Evil Dead: The Musical. According to the article, producer Don Carmody and his partners are in negotiations to make a movie version of the Canadian and off-Broadway stage musical based on the Raimi films.
Indiana Jones: 66. Rambo: 62. John McClane: 53. Ash Williams: 50. When it comes to aging action figures, Ash is still in comparatively good shape, which is why actor Bruce Campbell is ready to strap the boomstick back on for Evil Dead 4. Despite the fact that it's been 16 years since the last Dead movie, Army of Darkness, came out, Campbell thinks that Ash still has the war against the deadites well in hand --- er, chainsaw.
