Are you a fan of Evil Dead?
Did you take to your tongue with a box cutter after you watched the reboot, and thought to yourself, 'they could have done so much better with a sequel, not a reboot'?

Starz have ordered a follow up to the original trilogy, making this a 10-part sequel to the original three... which is what should have happened in the first place (a sequel, not a remake, damn I hate remakes). This run will see 10 half hour episodes, it'll also team Sam Rami and Rob Tapert up with Bruce Campbell, once again.

[Bruce Campbell's] Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who [has] spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.
When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons — personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

This will see the partnering of Rami/Tapert [Director/Producer respectively] and Starz, who worked together previously on 'Spartacus'.

The title of this project is ASH v Evil Dead, and is set to hit our television screens in 2015.
