Bruce Campbell confirms and sheds some light on the upcoming Evil Dead television series in an interview with the Macomb Daily:
The popular indie-actor and Royal Oak native will soon reprise his most famous movie role, Ash Williams, in an “Evil Dead” TV series, it was announced recently. Campbell, 56, couldn’t say too much about it, however, and not because he was dodging the question.
“There’s very little to tell. It’s in the early development stages,” says Campbell, a graduate of Groves High School in Birmingham. “I’ve agreed to be in it. Beyond that, there’s absolutely nothing to tell. There’s no start date. It’s just something we’ve finally agreed to do.”
