A Musical Splatter Fest In 'Evil Dead'
The Associated Press put out a huge article about The Evil Dead Musical which was in about every newspaper, around the New York area, and it talked about how the show "could become a kind of heir to The Rocky Horror Picture Show". Bruce as always got mentioned in the article, here is an excerpt:
"Actor Bruce Campbell is a cult hero for his performance as Ash - a role that requires charm, heroism, bone-dry humor and cutting off that bedeviled appendage. But the creators have found a worthy musical replacement in Ryan Ward, who answered a flier they posted. His lanky heroics anchor the show...They won the blessing of the film's creators - including director Sam Raimi, who has gone on to helm the "Spider-Man" series - by e-mailing Campbell at his Web site. But that hasn't stopped them from taking good-natured potshots at Raimi, including complaints from one character about having "Spider-Man" as her in-flight movie."
Thats pretty neat how they got the blessing from Sam and Bruce by just e-mailing Bruce. I'm sure Sam, Bruce, and Rob Tapert will all get a cut out of the film. You can read the full article here.
