Actor Bruce Campbell took to his Twitter account today to answer some of his fans' questions about The Evil Dead remake he is producing with Sam Raimi, Robert G. Tapert, and new director Federico Alvarez. Much to the chagrin of many fans, though, Bruce Campbell revealed that his iconic character Ash will not be present in the remake. Here are two of his tweets below from this afternoon.
"'@Shipwreck2k: That's the first i've heard of the remake.. Who are they casting for ash?' No Ash character currently."
"Twitter fails when info gets fragmented. Last statement: ED remake is a re-telling. All bets are off & all involved love the new approach."
When we spoke with Bruce Campbell at Comic-Con 2011, the actor indicated there may be a possibility he could make a cameo appearance in The Evil Dead, although he would not divulge any specifics. It is possible that he could be featured as a different character besides Ash, but it seems we won't positively know for quite some time. Bruce Campbell also said that the remake will begin production in early 2012.
