Bruce Campbell CAMEO confirmed for “Evil Dead” reboot, new plot discussed

When news broke that Evil Dead was getting rebooted, my biggest question also happened to be on the tip of tongues across the planet: What role, if any, will Bruce Campbell play? He was listed as a producer in the initial press release, but no casting had been announced, until now.

Earlier this week, reboot Director Federico Alvarez confirmed that Bruce has a cameo and also talked a bit about the story for the new movie. See what he had to say, below:

“Especially among fans nobody wants to see a celebrity in a remake like this,… The only recognizable face is part of Bruce Campbell, but will be in a cameo towards the end of the film. Another thing that will change the characters and some story details, while keeping the basic outline of friends who are beleaguered by demons in a cabin alone. ”

When discussing if the film would be more horror than comedy, Alvarez replied:

“Sam Raimi says there’s a fine line between horror and comedy. The original Evil Dead was intended as a straight horror movie with scenes of extreme gore directly designed to shock the viewer. I rented the movie with a friend from a video store at just thirteen years old, and that was a big mistake! The film scared the life out of us.”
