Hey folks, Harry here with the most exciting film news since all the hubbub started on Ray Harryhausen working on a new SINBAD film. While nothing could be that cool... a New Bruce Campbell as Ash being directed by Sam Raimi movie... well - that's unspeakably cool. And something we've all been dreaming of seeing become a reality. Meanwhile - Sam is also going to be Producing with his "THE GRUDGE" & "THE BOOGEYMAN" company... GHOST HOUSE PICTURES - a remake of EVIL DEAD 1 & 2 (as a single film) to be directed by a talent with a fresh vision for it. At least - that's what he told Bloody-Disgusting.Com in a recent interview (where you'll find more details!)
The rumor I keep hearing is that Raimi is courting Chan Wook Park to do that remake - though by no means is that a done deal. Park is scheduled to shoot and finish at least 2 other films in South Korea that he's announced. And GHOST HOUSE might be wanting that project on a more accelerated pace. Personally... I just want GHOST HOUSE to get shooting on 30 DAYS OF NIGHT. That's the property they own that most cries to be a movie, right now. At least, in my opinion...
