Raimi, Bruce, and Ivan are all going to be directly involved. I guarantee that Raimi handpicks the directors, and it's not like they're going to be able to veer from whatever path he and the other two want it to go. They'll have a specific vision for it, and whoever comes into it will have to follow that. Look at Fargo, every episode was directed by different people, as was From Dusk 'Till Dawn, but the shows were seamless and you'd never know anyone else directed them. You really don't have anything to worry about. Again, you'll get more from this series then you will from one sequel, so I'd rather have this, to be completely honest.

I like the movie quite a bit, but the Fargo series was a million times better.

Rival the best movies? I've never seen any tv show come anywhere close to the likes of Apocalypse Now, Once Upon A Time In The West or Blade Runner. I think any possible expectations of a Starz Evil Dead series having a similar budget or production values to something like Game of Thrones is pretty unrealistic. Also, almost all tv spin-offs from movies are usually pretty damn poor in comparison - would be nice to see this show somehow buck the trend but I am highly sceptical.

Edit: Not sure what to make of brief 30 min episodes either. Would have preferred 45 mins instead...

I'd rather it be a proper movie sequel too, but since we're getting a TV show I'll be cautiously optimistic. Quite frankly, all the TV show needs to be is better than Army of Darkness, which is a pretty low bar in my book. I've always been disappointed by that film's overly comedic, slap-stick tone.

I'm quite a big fan of the director's cut of Army of Darkness. Am wondering which AoD ending, the tv show would continue from - the theatrical cut had a slightly cheesy ending taking place in a contemporary setting whilst the director's cut had a much more downbeat finale with Ash trapped in a post-apocalyptic future.

Theatrical:

Quote:
Campbell will be reprising his role as 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.

The main thing I'm worried about is the effects, I really hope they'll be going more for practical effects as CGI on a TV budget rarely comes out well. I'm excited though, so cool to finally get an "Evil Dead 4".

Well, and the fact that most people have probably only seen the theatrical version of the film, so they'd only know that version's ending. It wouldn't make sense to have the series follow the director's cut ending, you would alienate too many viewers out the gate.

Soooooooooo..... when do we get a thread title and thread location change? This is no longer Evil Dead 4, nor is it a film (a.k.a. "movie").

There's already a thread in the tv section. But it seemed logical to post the news here too.

I prefer the ending of the theatrical cut, where Ash opens the can of whoop-ass on the deadite in front of his co-workers in S-Mart.

Plus the directors cut absolutely ruins the film. I'm glad to see this show retcon it.
