Bruce Campbell Discusses EVIL DEAD - Confirms Ash is NOT in the Movie

Bruce Campbell recently sat down with TV Guide and talked about the upcoming Evil Dead remake. During the interview he confirmed that Ash would not show up in the sequel, which is unfortunate. Here's what he had to say,

We are going to remake it. The first one. And people are a little iffy about that [but] we wanted to remake a movie with better effects and we're better at telling stories now... There's no 'Ash' character and that pisses people off [but] we didn't want to have the direct comparison. I wouldn't want to put an actor in that position.

What he says makes sense about Ash, and I get it, but I was at least hoping he would have a cameo which he hints could still be a possibility. The movie is being produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell with Fede Alvarez making his directorial debut. Watch the video interview with Campbell below.
