Blythe Danner and Sam Elliott Play 70ish Leads in 'I'll See You in My Dreams'

11 May 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The indie drama stars Blythe Danner, a veteran Tony-winning stage actress who many recognize as the movie mom in the "Meet the Fockers" series --and the real mother of Gwyneth and Jake Paltrow; their father and her husband, producer Bruce Paltrow, died 13 years ago.  In that sense she's familiar with the widow Carol Peterson in "I'll See You in My Dreams," who lives a comfortable but lonely life in Los Angeles with her shaggy old dog, having not kissed another man since the death of her husband 20 years before. When she has to put down her beloved canine companion, she's shaken and starts to open up, to her depressed young pool man (Martin Starr of "Silicon Valley"), who takes her out to sing karaoke (the former singer is sensational), to her young professional daughter (Marin Akerman) and her bridge group of fun retirees (Mary Kay Place, Rhea Perlman and June Squibb »

Zac Efron & Robert De Niro Show Off Ripped Bods on "Dirty Grandpa" Set

30 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Holy abs!   Zac Efron and Robert De Niro were spotted on the set of their new flick, "Dirty Grandpa," in Tybee, Georgia on Thursday.  Efron looked tanned and toned as he flaunted his chiseled chest wearing nothing but yellow pants. De Niro, 71, definitely held his own alongside the heartthrob while sporting beige khakis and a matching bucket hat.  The comedy will follow an uptight guy who is tricked into taking his perverted grandfather to Florida for spring break.  Julianne Hough, Aubrey Plaza and Dermot Mulroney also star alongside the "High School Musical" star and the "Meet The Fockers" actor in the funny flick.  Efron showed off his hot bod earlier this week while on the set wearing nude boxer briefs -- clearly the 27-year-old has no problem stripping down in the name of comedy!  What do you think about Robert and Zac's shirtless shot?

New Ash Vs. Evil Dead Photo Teases A Familiar Sight

23 April 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production on the Ash Vs. Evil Dead series has kicked off in New Zealand, reuniting original core trio Sam Raimi, Bob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, who will all reprise their roles as director, producer and star, respectively. One other defining element of Deadite lore is now poised to re-appear thanks to the first promo shot of the creative trio: Raimi’s 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The yellow saloon has made cameos in every single one of the director’s films to date, and served as the titular buffoon’s own ride in the first few Evil Deads.

Speaking of that inciting trilogy, it seems as though the ten-episode series won’t share quite as much connective tissue as previously thought. Of course, it’s still the same Ash who fought Deadites on more than occasion and kicked their groaning, demonic butts back to hell. But his new bout of adventures set some »

This week, production began on the highly anticipated upcoming Starz series, Ash vs Evil Dead, which has creators Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell reuniting, this time in New Zealand, to bring fans a new iteration of everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding anti-hero.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to take part in a very special conference call with the trio about what we can expect from the first 10-episode season (and beyond), how Ash vs Evil Dead will fit into the overall Evil Dead universe, input into some of the new characters we’ll be meeting along the way and much, much more.

Ash vs Evil Dead will definitely be hardline horror but expect some quintessential Evil Dead comedy to show up from time to time: According to Raimi, Ash vs Evil Dead is definitely going to be an intense horror experience but when you’re working with someone like »

Ash Vs. The Evil Dead Releases Teaser Trailer That’s All Tease

2 April 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Starz has had some serious luck with original programming, releasing some of the best shows around over the last few years, but they are about to really test their luck, and they finally have a glimmer of something to pique your interest.

Ash vs. The Evil Dead will find Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash, and if that isn’t enough to count as poking the dragon that is the legion of Evil Dead fans out there, the show is apparently going to play along with reality’s timeline and have us jump back into Ash’s life thirty years later. According to the official word, Ash, chainsaw-hand… in hand, has just been avoiding everything he can possibly avoid, hoping that all his problems are behind him. That’s apparently worked to some degree for a long time, but it couldn’t last forever.

Take a look below, and start picking a side now. »

First Teaser For Ash Vs. Evil Dead Promises More Chainsaw Action

2 April 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the cameras have yet to roll on Starz’s ten-episode sequel series Ash Vs. Evil Dead, that hasn’t stopped the network from assembling a brief teaser to clue audiences in on the forthcoming show. Returning to tackle the Deadites once again are original Dead director Sam Raimi, producer Bob Tapert and star of the show Bruce Campbell as the buffoonish Ash, for what’s shaping up to be a glorious return to the world of the Evil Dead.

This simple promo zones in on established elements from the Dead mythology: Ash’s iconic chainsaw, random groans, and the striking visual of the titular anti-hero lifting his weapon to the sky. As teasers go, it’s a remarkably short offering, but that’s not to say it won’t quench the thirst of diehard fans eager for more bloodshed when the show debuts.

Here's the Groovy First Teaser for Starz's 'Ash vs Evil Dead' (Video)

2 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Starz has released the first teaser for its upcoming "Evil Dead" sequel series, "Ash vs Evil Dead," and while it's short on plot, it's enough to get fans' chainsaws revving in excitement.

The brief clip is really meant to tout the reunion of the franchise's original masterminds, made up of creator/director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell, who are all producing the series. It also features the show's logo -- a callback to the original "Evil Dead" poster -- and yes, Campbell's character's infamous chainsaw arm.

The official synopsis, per Starz's press release:

Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons -personal and literal. »

Ash Vs. Evil Dead: Jill Marie Jones confirmed as female lead

20 February 2015 12:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Starring alongside Bruce Campbell in Ash Vs. Evil Dead will be Jill Marie Jones of Sleepy Hollow

Jill Marie Jones has joined Ash Vs. Evil Dead, the TV show which will carry on Ash’s adventures post-Army Of Darkness.

The plot of the show, we're told, centres on Ash as an ‘aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the past three decades avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.’

Naturally, that all changes ‘when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons — personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its evil grip.’

Jones fits into proceedings as a disgraced state trooper from Michigan, who for some reason blames Ash for the ‘grisly murder’ of her partner. Soon enough, they team up to stop the invasion, we would assume. »

Bruce Campbell’s Sidekicks For Ash vs. Evil Dead Have Been Cast

11 February 2015 2:02 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Starz

Besides the obvious – ie. Bruce Campbell as Ash, Ted Raimi as Fake Shemp – we’ve had no idea of the casting for Starz and Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead sequel series until today.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first actors to book their seats at the read through are Ray Santiago, of Meet the Fockers, and Dana DeLorenzo of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. With that kind of broad comedy on their resumes these guys shouldn’t have any trouble at all with Sam Raimi’s Three Stooges-inspired splatstick.

It’s not in the original report but I can add that both actors will play co-workers of Ash’s in a superstore, though this is maybe not the S.Mart of Army of Darkness fame. As the pilot episode unfolds, however, the rising Deadites will change everything and the characters’ business becomes not selling red vines »
