Everyone should be very pleased, then, by the interview Campbell recently gave Penny Dreadful. According to the Chin himself, there probably will be a remake coming someday, but given how busy Raimi is, it won't be any time soon. In addition (this is the good news), the film won't have anything to do with the character of Ash - really, it'll be more a reinvention than a remake, in which the evil book affects "a whole new group of people in a different situation." The goal of the film - when and if it's made - will be to leave the low-budget campiness of the original film behind in favor of "flat out, scary-ass, un-rated horror."
And that sound you hear is a zillion Evil Dead devotees exhaling for the first time in months.
