I probably would only be interested in one that featured an old Ash, kind of like Bubba Ho Tep.   I definately wouldn't support some group just trying to cash in on the name.

Yeah, I don't understand a movie company trying to find some legal loophole to swipe a franchise. Why didn't they try paying for the rights from Raimi with a good pitch for an idea. Companies are always buying the DVD rights to semi-successful films and making their own sequels. I think there's been at least 3 Dr. Doolittle DVD sequels and one Hollow Man done that way. He probably would have said no but at least you would've tried the proper channels.

Hey,"serena" or whatever name you guys are trying this time, this is a sci-fi genre website if you hadn't noticed. Why don't you try advertising something that fits in here like inter-species love with aliens or elves?

or monkeys....eh..eh?

I'm not a big fan of this franchise so I really don't care what they do or which way they go but as long as it looks good I'll check it out.

I know I read where Bruce Campbell was talking this new film up saying it's bloody and great but then again he has something to gain so can't really trust that as an unbiased opinion.

The best of the series was the 3rd, Army of Darkness, anyway. Wonder if they'd revisit that

@Wiseguy I see what you did there

I would love to see Ash wandering the post-apocalyptic earth seen in the alternate ending to Army of Darkness, only to meet up with Snake Plissken, who caused the "apocalypse" when he activated the Sword of Damacles superweapon at the end of Escape From LA. Snake & Ash, aka Kurt Russell & Bruce Campbell = UNTOLD AMOUNTS OF AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm with you, SmokingFrog, on the Kurt Russell & Bruce Campbell thing, but I would much prefer Jack Burton & Ash.

Rami's company may not be developing a sequel to the Evil Dead films (which at this point I'm fine with, really where have the got to go with them) but to claim they have done "nothing" with the franchise is absurd. Look at how they have merchandised the hell out of the series with toys, comics, games and damn near everything else other than a movie one could name.

That'd be like saying Disney has no interest in Micky Mouse because they haven't made a movie with him in years. Just ridiculously stupid. Given that the film makers seem to be desperate to call it that it makes me suspect that the film is a steaming pile they need a hook for and they thought it would fly under the radar until it hit the big screen and suckered a few people in who hadn't figured out it wasn't connected to anyone working on the original films. .
