EW have just released another two images from the upcoming Ash Vs Evil Dead series and they are great…
The first image (above) has a bloodied Ash with new sidekick Pablo (Ray Santiago) in Ash’s car. And not just any car, but director Sam Raimi’s Delta — known affectionately as “the Classic” — from the original trilogy.
That’s right, folks, it’s all back!
“I’m talking the ‘73 Delta 88. The Classic is back! I’ve driven it. I did a William Shatner power-slide in that car. That’s the only spoiler I’m gonna give you: that Ash and that car — we can power-slide. I met William Shatner on the convention circuit, and I talked aboutT.J. Hooker. He talked to me about how he power-slides those cars in T.J. Hooker. So I took Shatner’s advice, and I used that advice to do a T.J. Hookercombo-platter — with the Classic — power-slide,” said Campbell.
The image below really needs no descrption – it’s Ash, brandishing a chainsaw and looking damned awesome doing it.
The actor also promises a fairly chatty Ash in the series: “There’s going to be a lot of the classic, over-the-top, in-your-face fullness, with a pretty trash-talking Ash. In a TV series, people gotta talk, so Ash will have more dialogue than he’s pretty much ever had. There’s a pretty high count of Ash’s classic one-liners. They’re back, and they’re strong, and they’re flourishing!”
Bruce Campbell returns to the role of Ash Williams while Lucy Lawless is Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past; and Jill Marie Jones as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
The series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell. Raimi is directing the first episode, which he wrote with his brother, Ivan Raimi.
“Ash vs. Evil Dead” is currently shooting in New Zealand on the 10-episode first season and will air on Starz later this year.
