Evil Dead 4 and Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash:Moviehole recently sat down with Evil Dead guru, Josh Becker to discuss the recently rumblings surrounding the future of Bruce Campbell's "Ash" character...

There’s been a lot of rumours lately that New Line are working on using ‘Ash’ (Bruce Campbell’s character from the “Evil Dead” series) for the next “Freddy vs. Jason” sequel – as well as recent news that Sam Raimi is interested in doing another “Evil Dead” film.

“Evil Dead” guru Josh Becker, who wrote ‘the book of the dead’, as well as working on three films, chewed the fat with us yesterday and discussed the rumours.

“There is no truth in the rumour”, confesses Becker. “It's my belief that there will never be an Evil Dead 4. Bruce won't do it without Sam directing, and Sam has no reason to go backward and make another Evil Dead movie until his career falters, which it certainly isn't doing.”

So is Becker happy about this resurgence in horror of late?. “Yes and no. Yes because I think horror films are a terrific place for young directors to start; no because most of them aren't scary and are worthless to the genre. I don't think anyone's made a legitimately scary horror film since Aliens in 1986.”

Thanks to 'Clint'
