“Evil Dead” (and Bruce Campbell) Revived as Starz Mini-Series

Hail to the king, baby. Multiple sources are reporting that the Starz premium cable channel is working on “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” a miniseries in which Bruce Campbell’s Chin will reprise the role of Ash from Housewares.

Sam Raimi will direct the first episode.

An interesting tidbit from the press release:

Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons -personal and literal.

Man, I hope it doesn’t get all grimdark and serious like so many of the media remakes of the last few years.

Site rollback to yesterday afternoon

Due to my own cartoonish ham-handed-ness in accidentally erasing the site’s content directory and database, I’ve had to restore the site from a backup taken yesterday. Any comments posted since then are probably lost forever, and will be replaced by comments on this post about how silly David is for doing such a thing.
