Is the Evil Dead Remake Script Complete? Bruce Campbell Seems to Think So.


Of course, you have to ask yourself this question: Is Bruce Campbell screwing with your mind? He’s been known to play a joke or two, so it’s best to take what he says with a grain of salt. While doing some promotional tomfoolery for “Burn Notice”, Campbell was posting answers to various questions over at Reddit. Not surprisingly, a question about the supposed “Evil Dead” remake popped up in conversation, and being the dapper man that he is, Campbell dropped a bit of knowledge on the masses regarding this project.

Here’s the bit about the script:

The script is awesome. I will be one of the producers and possibly play the milk man.

And a little more regarding the franchise’s future:

In all honesty, we would all love to make another ‘Evil Dead’ movie. When that will happen? Who can say — we’re all working on other jobs right now. We’re not trying to dodge anybody’s questions, there just isn’t that much to talk about. The remake’s gonna kick ass—you have my word.

In all honesty, I say put the brakes on the remake and hold out for “Evil Dead 4″ when everyone is available. The idea of a remake is intriguing, but it will only serve as a stop-gap in-between “Army of Darkness” and whatever sequel Raimi and crew eventually cook up. And if Seann William Scott ends up playing Ash, I may eat a boomstick.

    Oh hell no! Stiffler is NOT Ash!! I think Bruce being on board is the ebst thing about it, cause he’ll make sure it doesn’t suck! HAIL TO THE KING BABY!!!

    So who should play Ash?

    • Punisher

      i must say sean william scott would be an interesting choice i can see him pulling off the goofy parts but idk about the serious stuff involved im sure they can find some one better but i dont think anybody can out bet bruce’s performance as ash

  • Juggernaut

    I hate to say it but Ryan Reynolds or Chris Evans would be good choices.

    • Dedpool

      I dont see either of them as Ash, but I DO see your boy Bradley Cooper doing it decently. His “Face” in “The A-Team” was basically Ash with btter luck with the ladies. He was wholey insane though. LOL.

      • Juggernaut

        I could see that! Maybe Chris Pine or Ryan Mcpartlin. Whoever it is has to have a realy magnetic “guy’s guy” vibe while also being dashing, charming and funny. Bruce raelly is a hard act to follow.

        • Dedpool

          Agreeed on all of that! Also both of those choices would work, but I’d have to choose McPartlin over Pine. Love his work and hi comedic timing is great, but McPartlin fits better.

  • Falock_09

    for me the perfect choice to take over the role if a remake does happen is nicholas brendon, his work on buffy over the years has proven it for me, also he kinda looks like ash from the original movie

    • Dedpool

      Actually that’s a great choice. And yeah he does look a bit like Bruce back in the day.

      • Juggernaut

        Maybe ten years ago! Christ, he’s 40!!! If it is in fact a reboot the actor playing Ash would need to be in his late twenties to mid thirties. Any older and they might as well just bring Campbell back and do the digital remastering that they did to Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan for X-Men: The Last Stand.

        • Dedpool

          You know I hadn’t thought about that. Buffy and its cast are in kind of a time capsule for me. The actors I do see from it mostly look the same cept for Boreanaz. LoL

          Sent on the go.
