Bruce Campell goes to reprise his position as Ash Williams in an upcoming Evil Dead online game regardless of claiming that he was accomplished with the character.
“Oh no no, that’s different,” mentioned Campbell in an interview with Bloody Disgusting relating to his obvious resolution to retire from enjoying Ash. “I’ve earlier obligations I’ve to fulfill. They are doing a online game. An entire immersive sort of dealio. I’ll be Ash for that, as a result of I wouldn’t need another person’s voice hamming it up.”
We do not know a lot concerning the Evil Dead online game that Campbell is referring to – as Bloody Disgusting factors out, there are causes to imagine it is perhaps a digital actuality recreation – however the truth that Campbell is dedicated to enjoying Ash within the recreation makes it that rather more fascinating. Given that Campbell seemingly stand by his resolution to not play Ash on-screen once more, these video games might very properly be the final time that we see him painting his most well-known characters.
Of course, you need to by no means say by no means when it comes to these sorts of issues. There’s all the time the chance that Campbell will resolve to take the Ash position for yet one more spin if the proper alternative comes alongside.
In case you are questioning, there have been different Evil Dead video video games up to now. The motive you most likely do not bear in mind them is that almost all of them had been terrible, terrible, terrible. The PlayStation’s Evil Dead: Hail to the King was a very unhealthy Resident Evil rip-off, whereas Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick and Evil Dead: Regeneration had been barely extra satisfactory motion video games based mostly on the Evil Dead movies.
Here’s hoping that this new enterprise will lastly ship an Evil Dead recreation worthy of the movies and collection.
