There had been mutterings of Sam Raimi and co working on another Evil Dead movie for years, with both the director and actor Bruce Campbell - who played Ash in all three of Raimi's previous movies - sounding confident that something would happen eventually. But as time went by it seemed more and more unlikely that we would ever see a follow up to Army Of Darkness, and then talk turned to a reboot of the franchise - with Raimi and Campbell on board though surely? Well no, at least not in the capacity fans were expecting. A new director in Fede Alvarez was chosen, and Campbell revealed that he wouldn't be appearing in so much as a cameo - in fact teh character of Ash will not be a factor at all. So how and why did all of this come about? "The Chin" himself explains to Total Film. »
