Verheiden Talks 'The Evil Dead' Comic
Mark Verheiden, who wrote the upcoming Bruce Campbell blockbuster My Name Is Bruce, is also writing the comic book adaptation of The Evil Dead. Verheiden gives us an update on the project courtesy of his blog:
"Some people spend the holidays wrapping presents, listening to Christmas music and getting soppy drunk on spiked eggnog drinks. Me, I'm spending this Christmas staring at a very young Bruce Campbell's puss, watching and rewatching the first EVIL DEAD movie. I'm in the final stretch of adapting and expanding on the movie for an 88 page, fully painted, four issue comic book series due out sometime (I hope) in 2007."
You can read the full in depth post on Verheiden's inspirations for the project here. The Evil Dead Comic should be released sometime in late 2007. Verheiden is currently a co-executive producer on Battlestar Galactica, I hope that he can find a guest spot for Bruce next season.
