During Sony’s Screen Gems panel at The San Diego Comic Con, writer and Sam Raimi took the time to discuss his film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us survival game hit, which might even feature longtime friend Bruce Campbell, star of the original Evil Dead franchise. Obviously, Raimi had the opportunity to talk about his plans with Evil Dead at the panel, who revealed that a TV series is in the works right now with his brother. American producer Rob Tapert is also on board for the project.
I always loved working on that series with Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert, and my brother and I are writing the Evil Dead TV show right now…with Bruce Campbell.
The Evil Dead franchise spawned numerous sequels, including Army of Darkness and the most recent 2013 reboot directed by Fede Alvarez. Fans should be happy to hear this news since it sounds like Raimi will have his hands deep into the Evil Dead TV series.
