Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 3 Coming in February to Starz

Prepare to get groovy in 2018.  According to the show’s official Twitter account, the wonderfully gory Starz original series Ash vs. Evil Dead will kick off their third season on Sunday, February 25th, 2018.  The cable network also released new promotional artwork for the upcoming season, which can be seen below.

The first two seasons of the horror-comedy series have been a critical success, though the ratings do still leave much to be desired.  The hardcore fan-base of the Evil Dead franchise are solely responsible for keeping the show afloat, which is a shame because the action and writing are incredible and gore factor unparalleled.  Bruce Campbell revised his role from the original films as Ash Williams, the shotgun-wielding, chainsaw-handed time-traveling reluctant hero who is locked in the ultimate battle with the deadites, who are decipals of the Necronomicon (book of the dead.)  Joining Ash in his quest are friends Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), while the wonderful Lucy Lawless portrays his on-again, off-again friend and enemy Ruby.  Starz had previously announced that the show was getting picked up for a third season last October, though no other details were offered at the time. read more

Sam Raimi Rumored to Direct Bermuda Triangle Film for Skydance

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Sam Raimi is in talks with Skydance to direct a film about the Bermuda Triangle. Universal and Warner Bros. are also currently developing competing projects about this airplane-eating geographical urban legend/phenomenon, so the word on the street is that everyone is extremely tight-lipped about plot details and specifics. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter’s sources say that Raimi had to travel to Skydance’s studios just to read the script, which is penned by Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time). read more

Raimi, Alvarez, and Sayagues Announce Sequel to Don’t Breathe

At a press event designed to promote the blu-ray release of this past summer’s sleeper hit Don’t Breathe, the trio of filmmakers responsible for the film’s success announced that a sequel is already in the works.

Eric Eisenberg of Cinemablend covered the event and asked director Fede Alvarez about the status of the sequel, and Alvarez responded saying,”Don’t Breathe 2 is something we definitely want to do. The challenge obviously is — we just don’t want to do the same movie again, slap a “2” on it. We’ll feel so embarrassed if we do that. Our first reaction when they told us, ‘Do you want to do it?’ was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. That’s Hollywood! That’s the devil! We don’t want to make a sequel just because we can.’ But then we got an idea that we’re really excited about, and I won’t tell you what it is because it will spoil the whole thing.” read more

Ash vs. Evil Dead Already a Go for Season 3!

With just one episode of season two in the books, Starz has announced that it has renewed Ash vs. Evil Dead for a third season. While no surprise to fans of the show, the move to announce the renewal so quickly can be seen as a signal to other networks that television viewers have not yet had their fill of mainstream horror TV shows just yet.

The announcement also came one day after cast members appeared in a panel at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York as a part of the annual New York Comic-Con. At the panel, series regulars Bruce Campbell, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago, Lucy Lawless, Ted Raimi, and Michelle Hurd were joined by the legendary Lee Majors who plays Ash’s father in season two. read more
