http://movieweb.com/person/bruce-campbell/Bruce Campbell, original star of the cult horror film, The Evil Dead, was recently interviewed and shed some light on what to expect from Federico Alvarez upcoming The Evil Dead reboot, which he is producing.
The actor first addressed how the new project is different from the original one.
"There's none of the original characters. We didn't want to compare apples with apples. It's a contemporary movie - just like Evil Dead was contemporary in 1979, this is contemporary for young adults now. It's basically five new kids who are going to have a really bad night with a brand new director - Fede Alvarez, who was handpicked by Sam Raimi. I've seen it already; I think it's definitely fabulous."
He goes on to speak about how this rendition will hopefully win fans back after the initial backlash.
"We're really excited and really behind it, but it's going to take a bit to get the Evil Dead fans behind it. We know we've pissed a lot of them off. We appreciate that and we appreciate their anger and their zeal, but the only thing we want to impress upon them is that we didn't screw it up. This is going to be just as memorable as the original Evil Dead without being the same movie."
