Convincing Sam Raimi to sign off on the project would seem to be the biggest hurdle. Raimi said as recently as 2004 on Movieweb.com (as recently reported on Moviehole.net) that he wasn't interested in lending the character out. Part of me thinks it blasphemy that any other director should use the Ash character, but given the fact that Raimi has been helming the mega-budget Spider-man franchise (and doing it well), one has to wonder if and when he'll ever find time to steer Ash back to that cabin in the woods. And what of Bruce Campbell? Is he willing to strap on the chainsaw and get doused with fake blood even without his long-time partner in crime calling the shots? I think this could be a fun movie, but I'm not holding my breath just yet.
