Bruce Talks Evil Dead Remakes/Sequels & Bubba 2 [3.7.05]
In a recent lengthy interview with The Beat, Bruce talks about the Evil Dead remake, Evil Dead 4, and Bubba Ho-Tep 2:
On the "Evil Dead" remake: "We're going to do the remake and none of us feel bad about it because it's our own remake. We're not getting some 1970's TV show out of Aaron Spelling's file draw and making a movie. This is our own movie. So we're gonna update it for a new generation with new effects and tell a new story with a new cast. We'll be pulling the strings from behind. And hopefully they'll like it. I don't know when it will come about. It'll take a while to find a director and to write it and get it all set but it's gonna be made."
On the "Evil Dead" sequel: "Everybody wants to make it. I do, Sam does, Rob Tapert does, so that's not an issue. The only issue is that this guy happens to have stumbled into a phenomenon. So until that dies down he won't have time. And really... there's no more mystery. That's it. There's nothing beyond that. It really is that simple. To tell the guy who made Spider-man to stop so he can make Evil Dead 4... it doesn't compute."
"I gave Spider-Man his name in the first one, and I defeated Spider-Man in the second one (that snooty usher I played didn't let him into the theatre). In the third, there'd better be something just as amazing," he says.
But he doesn't think he will be reprising his signature role as demon-battling Ash in another of Raimi's Evil Dead movies. "Sam's riding his gravy train right now. Why would he want to do an Evil Dead sequel? His only sequel will have a spider in it."
