Deadline is now reporting that the Evil Dead TV series in development has been officially greenlit by premium cable channel Starz. We last talked about the project this last summer when Sam Raimi announced at San Diego Comic Con that he and his brother Ivan were working on it.
The series will star Bruce Campbell as an aging Ash, who has spent the last several decades avoiding responsibility. Titled Ash vs. Evil Dead, one assumes that it must follow the theatrical ending of Army of Darkness and not the Planet of the Apes ending found on the director’s cut.
(And I doubt the Fede Alvarez reboot/sidequel film will have any relevance)
