What The Evil Dead needs to do to work as a TV series

10 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

For the classic horror movie to succeed on the small screen, Sam Raimi must ensure there's a decent plot and plenty of humour in with the horror. But, most of all, he needs Bruce Campbell at its heart

Of all the revelations at this year's Comic-Con, perhaps the most intriguing was Sam Raimi's confirmation that both he and his long-time collaborator (and brother) Ivan are beavering away on a TV adaptation of The Evil Dead. While a tentative cause for geeky celebration in itself, the news that Bruce Campbell, who played Ash Williams in the original, will also be involved means that gore fans globe-wide are now dribbling into their laps.

The Evil Dead franchise received an overhaul last year, of course, with Fede Alvarez's sequel-remake, a decent if slightly humourless take on Raimi's original cabin in the woods claret-cabaret. The film's surprise post-credits sting starring Campbell was »

Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell Developing Evil Dead TV Series

29 July 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | 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. »

Bruce Campbell is set to star in new Evil Dead TV series

28 July 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There's a lot up in the air for all things Evil Dead and as far as I'm concerned, that's a good thing! Whether or not any of these come to fruition . . . well, we've heard talk about Evil Dead news before, so let's get right to it. For those of you who were fans of the Evil Dead remake (I certainly was), last we heard was that director Fede Alvarez had a sci-fi project in the works, but still had some ideas regarding a sequel to Evil Dead.  While I would love to see a sequel that explores new »

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

27 July 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 and Bruce Campbell are producing an ‘Evil Dead’ TV show

25 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sam Raimi has been making his rounds at San Diego Comic-Con, talking about various upcoming projects like his upcoming adaptation of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, which he’ll be producing, but he also dropped some news that he, Ivan Raimi and Bruce Campbell are currently collaborating on writing an Evil Dead TV series, as The Verge reported from Comic-Con. This is very exciting news for fans of one of horror’s greatest franchises, coming a little over a year and a few months after Fede Alvarez’s excellent, gory reboot, which Raimi and Campbell both produced.

Evil Dead would join a small host of other shows currently on TV based on classic horror films, which includes NBC’s masterful Hannibal and A&E’s soapy Bates Motel. Not much is known about the Evil Dead show other than it is in the early stages of writing, leaving »

Evil Dead TV Show Planned; Sam Raimi Writing and Bruce Campbell Will Be Involved

25 July 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

An interesting piece of news that came out at the panel for The Last of Us today was that Sam Raimi is currently writing and Evil Dead TV show.  Which is bizarre to me, but no more bizarre than the tortured development history of Army of Darkness 2.  Where does this leave that film?  And what does this mean for Evil Dead 2 (the apparently-still-gestating sequel to Fede Alvarez’s remake)?  We have no idea because Raimi didn’t mention anything in regard to those projects.  He barely mentioned anything in regard to this project except for the fact that he’s co-writing it with his brother Ivan Raimi and that Bruce Campbell will be involved. Hit the jump for more on the potential Evil Dead TV show.One thing that excites me about this is the fact that cable networks (and even regular networks if you look at NBC’s »

Comic-Con: 'Evil Dead' TV Series Coming from Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell

25 July 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the Evil Dead remake was released in 2013, producer and director of the original upon which it was based Sam Raimi claimed that not only was Evil Dead 2 being planned, but so was Army of Darkness 2, which he would direct himself, with the hope of someday bringing Ash and Mia together in an epic showdown. We haven't heard much in the year and a half since that talk started, but today at Comic-Con, Sam Raimi revealed that he and his brother Ted Raimiwere moving forward with an Evil Dead TV show.

Sam Raimi made the announcement while promoting the upcoming video game adaptation The Last of Us during a Screen Gems panel.

Bruce Campbell will definitely be involved in the TV series, but it was not said if he'd be reprising his iconic Ash character, or if he might serve a sort of Crypt Keeper host, which has been speculated, »

Breaking: Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are developing an 'Evil Dead' TV show

25 July 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Evil Dead" will live again -- this time on TV. Sam Raimi revealed at Comic Con that the cult horror franchise is being resurrected -- again -- for an upcoming TV series. "I always love working on that series," he said. "My brother [Ivan Raimi] and I are writing the Evil Dead TV show right now. Weird, but true. With Bruce Campbell." The news was revealed during a surprise Sony panel for the video game adaptation "The Last of Us," which Raimi will produce. No more details about the potential series have been announced, and it's unclear if Campbell will appear in the series, or just serve behind the scenes.  Raimi directed micro-budget horror hit "The Evil Dead" in 1981 and followed it up with two sequels -- 1987's "Evil Dead 2" and 1992's time traveling "Army of Darkness." Campbell starred as the bumbling hero Ash in all three films.  Raimi and Campbell »

From Dusk Till Dawn The Series Blog: ‘La Conquista’ Review [Spoilers]

27 May 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Written By: Robert Rodriguez, Marcel Rodriguez

Director: Fede Alvarez

Cast: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Robert Patrick, Wilmer Valerrama, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Eiza Gonzalez, Jake Busey

Synopsis: Santanico tries to lure Richie to the darkside as Seth and the gang head down to the catacombs in search of a way out.

After a quick flashback of Carlos’ past life as a Conquistador, the episode starts in Santanico’s lair.  She has Richie but cannot turn him unless he comes freely to her.   There is some discussion about how Ranger Freddie Gonzalez is still alive but all we get is that he may be from some kind of ancient bloodline.  Big coincidence there.

Upstairs Seth has a knife to Gonzalez and is also questioning how he is still alive.  Gonzalez tells them that he might have found a way out and will lead them to safety but Seth »

From Dusk till Dawn: The Series, Ep. 1.08, “La Conquista”, Disjointed episode distracts from great moments

7 May 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From Dusk till Dawn: The Series, Season 1, Episode 8, “La Conquista”

Written by Marcel Rodriguez

Directed by Fede Alvarez

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on El Rey Network

Somehow From Dusk till Dawn: The Series has managed to exceed expectations. With just 2 episodes left, the first season has been clever, imaginative, and exciting. There have been a few bumps along the way, some of the pacing has been off and the transition from screen to TV hasn’t always been smooth, but for the most part the series has benefited from the great chemistry between D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as Seth and Richie Gecko, and a hectic, bloody, cool attitude.

“Pandemonium” ended with Richie being shot by Freddie (Jesse Garcia) and drugged by Santanico (Eiza Gonzalez). “La Conquista” opens with a flashback to Carlos (Wilmer Valderrama) and his ever evolving back story. From the beginning Carlos has been the big question mark for the show. »

Fede Alvarez updates on Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness 2

7 May 2014 12:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the planned sequel to last year’s Evil Dead reboot, or indeed Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 4 – a.k.a. Army of Darkness 2. However, chatting to Shock Till You Drop, director Fede Alvaraz has provided an update, stating that he’s still looking for an idea for Evil Dead 2, as well as providing a brief update on Ash’s proposed fourth outing:

“Sam, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert and I are good friends and we talk to one another often and we’re always coming up with new ideas and projects. Sam is teasing Army of Darkness 2, which he is working on the script with his brother, but at the same time Evil Dead 2 is something we definitely want to do at some point. But part of the reason I think the last one was successful is »

Evil Dead 2 Movie Update - Development is Slow but Army Of Darkness 2 is in the Works

6 May 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Sam Raimi-produced and Fede Alvarez-directed reboot of Evil Dead was awesomely nightmarish. I really enjoyed that movie, and I wasn't sure if I would because I'm such a hardcore fan of the original. The reboot was a big hit though and fans of the original seemed to embrace it as well.

There was a lot of talk about a sequel after the reboot was released. It was something that everyone seemed excited about seeing, including the fans and the filmmakers. So why has nothing happened with it yet?! Because Raimi, Alvarez, and Bruce Campbell are in no rush to do it.

In a recently interview with Shock Till You Drop, Alvarez had this to say when asked about the sequel:

"Sam, Bruce, and Rob Tapert and I are good friends and we talk to one another often and we're always coming up with new ideas and projects. »

Fede Alvarez Talks From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Working with Robert Rodriguez, Evil Dead 2, MacHina, Dante’S Inferno, and More

6 May 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Airing Tuesday nights on El Rey is From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.  Based on the 1996 cult hit of the same name, and re-imagined for TV by co-creator Robert Rodriguez, the show follows fraternal fellons Seth Gecko (D.J.  Contra) and Richie Gecko (Seth Holtz)  on a crime spree that leads them straight into a vampire infested strip club.  The series has been inching towards the climactic standoff at the Titty Twister all season, and with tonight's episode, "La Conquista", everything officially goes off the rails.  Fittingly enough the episode is helmed by none other than Fede Alvarez, director of the 2013 Evil Dead remake, where he proved a knack for depicting completely unhinged encounters with the supernatural. In anticipation tonight's episode I hopped on the phone for an exclusive interview with Alvarez.  He talked about how he ended up directing an episode of From Dusk Till Dawn, why the eighth »

Evil Dead 2 Momentum Has Stalled

6 May 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last year saw the resurrection of Evil Dead as a reboot that was grislier and more graphic than Sam Raimi's original trilogy. Despite vocal outrage from the franchise's fans early on in the reboot's development, this new Evil Dead was a big hit, pulling in $97 million worldwide. So you'd think a sequel would be a no-brainer. But the reboot's writer-director Fede Alvarez isn't committing to a timeline for his Evil Dead 2. Shock Till You Drop spoke with Fede Alvarez as he did press rounds for his next project, a television series based on From Dusk Till Dawn. Alvarez insists that he, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert are all in communication about the future of Evil Dead's franchise. But there's no rush to get a second Evil Dead 2 in theaters. He explains: "Sam, Bruce and Rob Tapert and I are good friends and we talk »

Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead 2 Will Happen In Due Time

5 May 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gosh, I feel like there were weeks after Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead was released where everyone and their mother started speculating on the next franchise entry. One minute Alvarez was involved in a sequel, the next minute he wasn’t, then Sam Raimi chimed in and revealed we’d be getting an Army Of Darkness 2 – it was all rather overwhelming. Now that the dust has settled and Alvarez finally confirmed his next project as Dante’s Peak, we know Raimi will be continuing his own Evil Dead franchise with Army Of Darkness 2, but Fede Alvarez has resurfaced to let fans know his Evil Dead 2 hasn’t been nixed – he’s just waiting for the right time.

Talking to Shock Till You Drop about an episode of From Dusk Till Dawn he directed, the director offered the following update on Evil Dead 2:

Fede Alvarez: Evil Dead 2 Will Happen When the Time is Right

5 May 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Evil Dead helmer Fede Alvarez directs tomorrow night's episode of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series (airing at 9pm on El Rey) and Shock had a moment to speak with him this morning about not just his contributions to that show's bloodsucker-filled universe but about the status of Evil Dead 2 as well. It seems the sequel's momentum has waned since the first film debuted last year grossing $97 million worldwide at the box office. But Alvarez wouldn't exactly say it's losing steam, it's merely about waiting for the right idea.
