3 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This past weekend, during a surprise panel for the live-action adaptation of The Last of Us that Sam Raimi is producing, Raimi also announced that he is currently writing an Evil Dead TV series with his brother Ivan and franchise star Bruce Campbell. To what extent Campbell would be involved in the show was unclear, but yesterday the actor confirmed that he will indeed star in the new series.

Campbell tweeted the following response to a fan’s comment:

“@DeaditeBill: Only if @GroovyBruce is the Star of this new tv series will I accept. That's the plan.

Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell Developing Evil Dead TV Series

16 hours ago | | See recent Worst Previews news »

During the San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Sam Raimi is working on an "Evil Dead" TV series that will have Bruce Campbell involved. Very little is known about the series, but Campbell recently confirmed that the plan is for him to star in it. We also know that Raimi will re-team with his brother and "Army of Darkness" co-write for the show. Raimi has been talking about continuing the "Evil Dead" franchise for years. Then last year, it was rebooted under the direction of Fede Alvarez and went on to gross almost $100 million on a budget of $17 million. We later learned that Raimi was still interested in "Army of Darkness 2." No word if that's still the case or whether the project morphed into the "Evil Dead" TV series. »

Just when “Evil Dead” fans thought they couldn’t get more excited, original trilogy star Bruce Campbell dropped some more news on them.

At Comic-Con last weekend, Sam Raimi announced that he’s bringing “The Evil Dead” to life once more with a TV series while at a panel discussing the movie adaptation of videogame “The Last Of Us,” which he’s producing. He’s planning to write and direct the project with his brother, Ivan Raimi, co-writing. He also mentioned that he was drafting Campbell to topline.

On Sunday, responding a fan’s question on Twitter, Campbell confirmed that he does indeed plan to return to the franchise to star in Raimi’s series.

9 Biggest Surprises of Comic-Con 2014

28 July 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past. And the fact that neither Marvel nor DC announced any of its upcoming titles still stings. But, dang that footage! Both studios are clearly on the path to releasing two of the biggest movies of all time! It's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be vying to knock Avatar off its perch as the top grossing movie of all time. But seeing the latest and first footage from these superhero behemoths wasn't the only fun studios had with their fans and ever-expanding audience. There were a couple of curveballs thrown »

Watch: Stan Lee Tries Really Hard To Make You Excited For The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Electro Collector's Edition

28 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You almost feel bad for Sony at this point. The studio's relaunch of everyone's favorite webslinger has gone poorly, trailing the Sam Raimi films both commercially and critically, and the fanboys have delivered a thumbs down verdict. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is a mess of a movie that managed to be both overstuffed and underdeveloped, earning the least amount of money of any Spider-Man movie to date. Sony has now been forced to push "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" to 2018, to move "Sinister Six" up 2016, and to quietly take "The Amazing Spider-Man 4" off the calendar. But there is still product to sell, so they've turned to the ever enthusiastic Stan Lee to pitch you on the Collector's Edition of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Here is the 91 year-old Marvel legend going all out to sell fans on an ersatz Electro head that — wait for it — lights up and contains the "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" film on Blu-ray. »

Casting: Eva Green Joins Tim Burton's 'Miss Peregrine,' Matthias Schoenaerts Drops 'Belgica' And More

28 July 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With his Oscar contender "Big Eyes" starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz coming soon, those who prefer Burton's more whimsical movies shouldn't worry. Early next year he's gearing up an adaptation of Ranson Riggs’ “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” and he's got his eye on a former collaborator for a role. "Dark Shadows" star Eva Green is in negotiations to play the lead character in the story about "a teenager who finds himself transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them." Sounds like a good match of director, actress and material. [Variety] Even though it's apparently years off from actually happening, Neil Druckman revealed at Comic-Con that filmmakers are eyeing "Game Of Thrones" star Maisie Williams to lead the adaptation of his video game "Last Of Us." Sam Raimi is producing this one over at Screen Gems, »

25 Greatest Easter Eggs From The Last 20 Years Of Horror

28 July 2014 2:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

In the last two decades the little genre that could, horror; has witnessed a huge resurgence. Coming off a dry spell following the 80s slasher craze, the mid-nineties became awash with a new breed of scaremongers set about reviving the then scare-free genre. After countless Freddy, Jason and Michael sequels, horror had become a watered-down pale imitation of the original terrifying hits that had audiences too scared to drive home so they ended up living beneath the seats at the cinema.

As a faction of film honoured by its legions of loyal fans, the horror genre was, and still is, a place for geeks, be it in front or behind the screen. And as all geeks know, you’ve got to stick together – which, is what a lot of the early horror helmers did, by acknowledging the genre from within the movies themselves.

Bruce Campbell will be back as Ash it seems in a television take on Evil Dead, from Sam Raimi...

Over the weekend, Sam Raimi announced that a television series based on the Evil Dead series of movies was currently in development. He's working with his brother, Ivan, on transferring Evil Dead to the small screen.

There weren't too many details on top of that, save for a pertinent one: it looks as if Bruce Campbell's Ash is going to be a major part of the show. For Campbell himself replied to a question about that in this Twitter exchange...

“@DeaditeBill: Only if @GroovyBruce is the Star of this new tv series will I accept.

‘Evil Dead’ TV Series to Star Bruce Campbell (If It Happens)

27 July 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

The biggest news out of any San Diego Comic-Con typically comes from the panels focused on the major studios’ upcoming tent-pole releases, and this year’s Con was no different, with impressive footage and reveals for some hotly-anticipated properties like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as an eye-popping first look at Mad Max: Fury Road.

Some interesting news also surfaced away from the main attractions, such as the surprise announcement that Universal and Legendary will be making a King Kong prequel called Skull Island, and in the realm of the hilariously bizarre, Sam Raimi announced an Evil Dead TV series to be developed ...

Comic-Con: Bruce Campbell Will Star in 'Evil Dead' TV Series!

On, Friday, one of the bigger surprises to come out of the convention center during Comic-Con 2014 was the fact that Sam Raimi and Ted Raimi are developing an Evil Dead TV series. Sam Raimi broke the news during the secret The Last of Us panel, and at the time claimed that original star and producer Bruce Campbell was also involved. But it was not stated in what capacity.

Answering a fan on his personal Twitter account, Bruce Campbell confirmed that he is going to headline the series, and even hints at his return as the iconic Ash with a piece of promo art.

Sam Raimi To Produce ‘The Last Of Us’ Film Adaptation & More ‘Evil Dead’

27 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the better games of the last few years The Last of Us is on track for a film adaptation. Now the long history of games-to-films is a mixed bag of success, Mortal Kombat flopped, Resident Evil smashed it, though had nothing to do with the original games except for the zombies. One of the more true game-to-film adaptations is the first Silent Hill, though that was too out-there for the regular viewing public. This bittersweet history will have some fans of the game worrying what will happen to their beloved Ellie and Joel.

The news from this week’s San Diego Comic Com might just ease some of those nerves though as one of the game directors Neil Druckman will produce alongside Mr Evil Dead, Sam Raimi. Druckman will have a large degree of creative control, meaning the story shouldn’t veer too far away from the original »

Sam Raimi Has Big Plans for Evil Dead and Arya Stark

26 July 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

While he wasn't on the official schedule for Comic-Con, Spiderman director Sam Raimi popped by the Screen Gems panel to receive an Inkpot award and talk about producing Neil Druckmann's postapocalyptic video game The Last of Us. The game follows two survivors — Joel and the 14-year-old Ellie — as they navigate a world that has been hit by a virus that turns people into zombies (sound familiar?). Raimi said that they were in talks with Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, for the role of Ellie. In what is perhaps even more tantalizing news, Raimi said that he and his brother (although outlets are divided on if that's brother Ted or brother Ivan) are writing a script for Evil Dead the TV series. Bruce Campbell, who starred in the original Evil Dead series, is also involved. »

Sam Raimi Is Producing a 'Last of Us' Movie Along with the Game's Writer

Earlier this week we brought you news that hit PlayStation game The Last of Us, about the survivors of a fungal infection that has turned most humans into zombielike creatures, was putting together a live stage reading of some of its more dramatic scenes, which we said was the next best thing to a movie. Well, surprise surprise, now a The Last of Us movie is definitely happening. Rumblings of a big-screen version has been brewing since the game came out last year (this happens anytime a big, new game is a hit), but today at Comic-Con it was revealed that Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is on board to produce the project over at Sony's Screen Gems. And if you think this is just a case of the studio churning out a quick cash-in on a fan-favorite game, you should rest easy...
