Answering some speculation as to whether "Ash" will be re-interpreted in the upcoming Evil Dead remake, Bruce Campbell took to Twitter today to say, "No Ash character currently," when asked about the redo.
He elaborated in another update, "Last statement: ED remake is a re-telling. All bets are off & all involved love the new approach."
Fede Alvarez is presently developing the remake for Ghost House Pictures. He'll direct from a script that he penned; Diablo Cody (Jennifer's Body) was brought in for revisions.
There you have it, you don't have to worry about "who is going to play Ash?" anymore!
