Entertainment weekly released the first photo of Bruce Campbell in Starz’ ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead’.
Bruce Campbell is reprising his role as Ash, who has been avoiding growing up for thirty years, when he is forced to take on a Deadite who threatens to destroy the human race. Lucy Lawless (Spartacus), Jill Marie Jones, Ray Santiago (Meet The Fockers)and Dana DeLorenzo (Sleepy Hollow) are also cast in the 10 episode half-hour series.
When asked what Ash has been up to, Campbell says “Not much! He was perfectly happy doing basically nothing: telling lies about how he lost his hand in bars late at night. That was basically his MO. So, he’s not really the guy who should be dealing with this right now. But… he is. He’s our guy!”
Sam Raimi, who directs the first episode of the new series, said “He’s the only one stupid enough to really tamper with those spirits. And he does. But he’s also still a really good monster fighter. So, he’s also going to be kicking some deadite buttocks, if you’ll pardon the French.”
Campbell goes on to say “It’s ‘The Searchers’ with carnage and mayhem. I’m relegated a little bit into the John Wayne mode these days with my team—the young, virile, evil fighters who will pair up with Ash and take on this nemesis: this never ending, ever evolving nemesis.”
‘Ash Vs Evil Dead’ is expected to premiere in late 2015 on Starz. You can view the first photo below!
