Chris Jericho to star in Kevin Smith’s horror anthology KillRoy Was Here
Last summer, Kevin Smith announced that he was shooting a horror anthology movie entitled KillRoy Was Here, which originally started out as a Christmas-themed Krampus film before morphing into what the filmmaker describes as a “modern day Creepshow kinda flick.”

He’s gearing up to begin production on his return to the View Askewniverse, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, has another episode of The CW’s Supergirl in the pipeline, and recently teased that he’s working on what could become his biggest-budgeted project of his entire career.

Bruce Campbell Believes Evil Dead Has a Future Without Ash

Bruce Campbell Believes Evil Dead Has a Future Without Ash
Actor Bruce Campbell has become synonymous with Ash Williams, the Deadite-slaying star of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead franchise; it's a fact Campbell himself jokingly bemoaned in 2007's meta horror-comedy My Name is Bruce. Still, after 3 feature films and 3 seasons of Starz's now-cancelled Ash vs Evil Dead, Campbell broke legions of horror fans' hearts by stating emphatically that he's retired from the franchise. While it was recently announced that Ash, along with his team of "Ghost Beaters" from the TV series, will regroup digitally in an upcoming Evil Dead-themed video game, the actor still believes there's a chance for more films and/or TV shows-just not with him.

So, what exactly does Campbell have in mind for a potential Evil Dead franchise reboot? Here's what he told ComicBook.com:

"You have Ash's daughter, Brandy [played by Arielle Carver-o'Neill]. She provides the lineage. Ray [Santiago] is a shaman now, you know as Pablo,

And does this mean […]

New ‘The Deuce’ Season 2 Trailer Asks “What’s Your Dream?”

The Deuce is looking like what Vinyl was always meant to be -- a complex and multi-layered portrayal of an entertainment industry that came alive in the 1970s, one that shows the excitement and the tragedy of it all. To be clear, The Deuce has always been this, but visually it's moving into the era that Vinyl also portrayed (however badly). The show's time jump to the late 70s also means plenty of changes for our core cast, especially the women, who are starting to find their voice and take charge of their …
