Evil Dead Again: Bruce Campbell Confirms New Evil Dead Moving Ahead and New Title

After Ash vs Evil Dead ended its television run, we were unsure of the future of the franchise. Considering that the Evil Dead movie remake claimed a new main character and Campbell himself said that he's retired playing Ash, no one was really sure what was going to happen with the long running cult horror series. Now, Bruce has taken to the internet to confirm that the next movie is on the way and it just got a new title. Initially called Evil Dead Now, they've officially changed the name to Evil Dead Rise. And it sounds like they're heading in a brand new direction with the fifth entry in the film franchise. When speaking with Diabolique, Campbell had some great stuff to say about the upcoming movie that won't be moving ahead until next year:

“The official name is Evil Dead Rise. We’re getting a new draft in. I don’t think anything will happen until 2021. Full bore ahead, we’re very excited about it. A whole, new ballgame. No more cabin in the woods.”

The Hole in the Ground director Lee Cronin will be taking over the reigns from Sam Raimi, who directed the first three movies...Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness. Cronin also worked with Raimi on the Quibi tv series 50 Stages of Fright.
