What the director of Evil Dead 4 has to say?
“I guess the cat is out of the bag or Henrietta out of the fruit cellar? Deeply Touched by all the kind words and warm wishes. Thanks, excited to collaborate with the legends, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, on a new chapter in the Evil Dead universe. #EvilDead”

The Evil Dead served as Sam Raimi’s directorial debut in 1981. Bruce Campbell starred as Ash in the film and it as produced by Rob Tapert. Evil Dead 2 released in 1987, which is often referred to as one of the greatest horror movies ever made. Bruce Campbell responded to Lee Cronin’s Tweet more excitingly. He tweeted, “Yep. And we know you’ll punish the audience accordingly!”.

Ash vs. Evil Dead was probably the last thing that the fans were treated to in this universe. When the cancellation of the franchise was announced after the third movie, Bruce announced his retirement as Ash, and for the time being, we know that Campbell won’t be the part of Evil Dead Now.
