The director Lee Cronin confirmed in an interview with Empire magazine that there is a very clear reference to Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead Rise. Although the protagonist of the original franchise, Campbell will serve only as a producer on the new film.
Explaining how the easter egg was placed, Cronin explained: “It felt like in order to take the franchise somewhere new and unlock the potential of the universe to tell more stories, it was necessary to break free. [de Ash Williams, de Campbell]”. “But Bruce is hiding somewhere in the movie. Bruce has a small presence in the movie. First person to find out and tweet me, I’ll give them $50,” he joked.
In Evil Dead Rise, two sisters who have lived apart for some time have their reunion disrupted by the attack of demons that force them to fight for survival in the middle of the big city. Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings) and Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl) will be the protagonists.
Directed by Lee Croninproduction arrives at April 21, 2023.
