It’s 2003. Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man has just become the biggest movie of the year, grossing over $400 million (at the time, one of only four films to achieve that feat). Maguire had just wrapped filming on Seabiscuit, a prestige film that would go...

The first season of Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead didn’t end with our beloved aging Lothario stockboy conquering his titular enemy (it’d be a short show if he did), instead taking an unexpected trip down south. Not Hell, but close! See Ash party chainsaw-style across Florida in our first official photo from Season 2!

In addition to directing an upcoming remake of French drama A Prophet, Sam Raimi is lining up another directing project, and while it’s not a horror film, it does have some unnerving aspects — depending on your point of view. Raimi will direct World War 3 based on George Friedman’s best-selling non-fiction (yes, non-fiction) book The Next 100 Years.

Sam Raimi hasn’t made a new horror film since 2009's Drag Me to Hell, his arguably underrated, super-gross gypsy curse flick. Aside from producing the Ash vs. Evil Dead series for Starz (and directing one episode), Raimi has remained focused on other, non-horror projects, like his Spider-Man trilogy, Oz the Great and Powerful, and his upcoming remake of French drama A Prophet. Fans of the Evil Dead mastermind may be interested in this video, then, which is the closest we’re likely to get to a new, original Raimi horror film…kind of.

Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead earned itself a groovy Season 2 pickup before the first run even premiered, and now Bruce Campbell is already dusting off the chainsaw again. Joining Ash this year will be none other than cameo mainstay Ted Raimi, along with The Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors, in roles key to Ash’s childhood.

Although the recent English-language remake of The Secret in Their Eyes didn’t make much of an impression on critics or audiences, Sony is still determined to Americanize another critically-acclaimed, Oscar-nominated foreign film. Hopefully the studio’s plans for A Prophet work out a little better, and with Sam Raimi now on board to direct from a screenplay by master of crime Dennis Lehane, we are feeling…cautiously optimistic about this one.

News of NBC’s proposed Xena reboot was quickly distanced from iconic series star Lucy Lawless, who thought of the prospect as a rumor, despite husband Rob Tapert’s attachment behind the scenes. The idea for a modern warrior princess doesn’t appear to have gotten very far, but NBC has at least made things more official, hiring LOST alum Javier Grillo-Marxuach to pen the pilot episode.

If there’s one thing the Evil Dead franchise has taught us, it’s to be wary of things that look too good to be true. The zombies in this series love to disguise themselves as the reanimated friends and family of the film’s heroes. And then, when the good guys let their guard down, the monsters strike.
