While speaking to TV Guide about the upcoming 5th season of Burn Notice fan favorite actor Bruce Campbell also spoke a little about the planned remake of Sam Raimi's classic Evil Dead. As we already know from the various articles we have already [posted, feedback has been..mixed. Many feel that a direct remake is a bad idea and if they have to do it then they really should have Ash make an appearance. Here Campbell explains the decision to leave him out..
"We are going to remake it. The first one. And people are a little iffy about that [but] we wanted to remake a movie with better effects and we're better at telling stories now... There's no 'Ash' character and that pisses people off [but] we didn't want to have the direct comparison. I wouldn't want to put an actor in that position."
Campbell also reveals that him making a cameo appearance in the movie is not a certainty, saying only "maybe". So have feelings changed on this at all? Does Raimi's involvement as Producer mean this one has a chance of working? Sound off below.
