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.

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.
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, »
Hong Kong – Australian film sales and digital marketing outfit Screenlaunch is poised to move into theatrical distribution.
The company plans to release two Australian-produced films “Touch” (pictured), which will have its premiere at next week’s Sydney Film Festival, and urban drama “Skin Deep.” The company expects to have both films in cinemas in early 2015.
“Traditionally, it’s difficult to get screen time in the cinemas for independents. However we are making this commitment because we believe with a steady supply of good Australian films, the audiences will drive more screens. ‘Touch’ and ‘Skin Deep’ contribute strong female stories and leads, but both have central themes that relate to a wide range of people,” said CEO of ScreenLaunch Ross Howden in a statement.
