We all know that Bruce Campbell is bringing back Evil Dead in a new Starz series called Ash Vs. Evil Dead and that Bruce will, of course, star as the main character Ash Williams.
To spice things up, we have just found out that he has signed on Lucy Lawless as his co-star. HE wasn’t releasing much information on her role, other than she will be playing playing an “extreme” part prone to stealing the spotlight.
After poking around a little bit I have found that IMDB does have some information. It appears that Lucy Lawless will be playing a character named Ruby, who will be appearing in at least three episodes. I have a feeling that she will be the “Queen” of the Deadites, or a ruler of some sort for them, after all, we haven’t seen any mention of an antagonist yet.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t much more listed. They don’t give us any information on the episodes, but we do get a brief description of the show itself:
Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind’s only hope.
Director Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless have a long working history most famously on the TV series Xena: Warrior Princess with Lawless as the title character and Campbell as the self-proclaimed King of Thieves, Autolycus.
With this trio back together, I wonder who else we will see from their pasts. You can be almost guaranteed to see Ted Raimi, but will we also see Renee O’Conner?
