After we reported on the casting of two new characters in the Ash V Evil Dead TV series over at Starz (here), we weren’t sure there’d be more… but there is at least one more.
The beautiful Jill Marie Jones, best known from sleepy Hollow and Girlfriends, will be joining Bruce Campbell as Ash as he fights the deadites. Again.
“Jones will play Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan state trooper who, following the grisly murder of her partner, sets out to find Ash and prove his responsibility for the crime. But as she soon learns, Ash and his cohorts may be mankind’s only hope against the plague of the evil dead.”
Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the 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.“
Ash Vs Evil Dead films in New Zealand this spring and will air on Starz in late 2015.
