It looks like Bruce Campbell may not have retired from Evil Dead Franchise as we think! Of course, he said live that he was done playing Ash Evil Dead projects, but no, he says he would consider returning to play Ash again in a new film project Sam Raimi also returned to directing.

in a recent interview with FangoriaBruce Campbell said:

“I’m going to write here! These guys don’t scare me! I worked on Xena, so nothing scares me. If Sam says, “I, Sam Raimi, will direct another Evil Dead,” then I, Bruce Campbell, will star in it. I don’t want to be the Ash seen by other people. Sam is the worst director I’ve ever worked with and Ash needs a bit to shine. And I think Sam is the only director who doesn’t get punched in the face making Evil Dead anymore! I just want to say that I called Rob and Sam, I’m not the coward they think I am; I just want the right conditions. Because Sam, even though he made movies in the studio, is still a good director! (Raimi laughs) So I want Sam! I’m doing it for Sam.”

Raimi said recently he believes it is new Evil Dead A film with Campbell is still possible, and there is room for all types Evil Dead movies. He explained:

“This character, Mia, was amazing, so I was very interested. We talked about Evil Dead IV for another network of universes, and we were a little worried about the clash. Ash Vs Evil Dead is what it became. But I always thought there was room for both. I still think there’s a place for Evil Dead movies. I don’t think they cancel each other out.

“I love working with Bruce and Rob. I love it as a producer because they’re really good partners, but I also love the support I get from them as a director. Hopefully that’s eventually on the cards.”

So Raimi wants to make another one Evil Dead A movie with Campbell that looks like it could actually happen! I wish Raimi and Campbell would make another one Evil Dead A film that continues the story of Ash! I think it’s time for Raimi to take that shot because the ball is in his court!
