Bruce Campbell - Bruce Campbell Confirms Evil Dead 4
Bruce Campbell, the legendary B-movie actor best known for his role in the 'Evil Dead' franchise, has confirmed he is to return for a fourth instalment of the cult horror classic. Campbell, who famously played 'Ash' in Sam Raimi's 'The Evil Dead', 'Evil Dead II' and 'Army of Darkness', confirmed the news via Twitter.
Campbell's confirmation came after one fan of the movies tweeted, "I won't believe in a new Evil Dead film until I see it. Or at least not until @GroovyBruce tells me to believe in it". Within an hour, the actor had responded in the affirmative, saying, "Believe in the remake, dawg!" adding, "The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell". It is reported Raimi will write and produce the new movie, but will not direct - his long-time associate Fede Alvarez will instead get behind the camera. Although the franchise only grossed a total of $19.8 million at the box-office, its influence on contemporary horror writers and directors is monumental.
Despite being regarded as a cult figure for most of his career, Bruce Campbell made the foray into mainstream cinema in 2007, appearing as 'Sam Axe' in the series 'Burn Notice. He has since lent his voice to the animated movies 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' and 'Cars 2'.
