Bruce Campbell says Evil Dead’s Ash could return, butin animated form. The Simpsons will spook with not one, but two Treehouse of Horror specials this year. Go behind the scenes of Westeros in a new House of the Dragon video. Plus, what’s coming on the Riverdale season finale. To me, my spoilers!
According to Deadline, Sarah Paulson is attached to star in Dust, a new horror film at Hulu from directors Will Joines and Karrie Crouse. The story is said to follow “a woman who is trapped by increasingly perilous dust storms and is haunted by her past encounters with a threatening presence and takes extraordinary measures to protect her family.”
Though likely joking, Bruce Campbell told Variety he’s signed a three-picture deal with Marvel, going on to suggest his Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness character is “not just a pizza vendor. Not even close.”
I think I need to clarify something: If you think of him as just the Pizza Poppa, you’re very, very confused. And you’re very wrong. In the multiverse, if he’s in one universe, he’s in all universes. Think of it not as a cameo, but as a building block for the multiverse. There’s so many things that you don’t know. Mostly, you don’t know that I’ve signed a three-picture deal with Marvel. This is not a one off thing. I’m really gonna be in trouble just for saying that. Don’t get hung up on Pizza Poppa, he’s not just a pizza vendor. Not even close.
According to ANVL Entertainment’s official website, the upcoming Children of the Corn reboot is scheduled for an unspecified “fall 2022" release date.

In a separate interview with Collider, Bruce Campbell additionally revealed there’ve been talks of an Ash Vs. Evil Dead animated series.
Yeah…as an animated series. You pick up right where the show left off. You can do the future a lot easier in animation. I still sound like Ash, and you know, my voice hasn’t been as beat up as my body has been so I can still do that crap. So I’ll still do the video game. And we’re already talking about an animated [series].
Variety also has word a TV series based on Christopher Paolini’s Eragon novel is now in development at Disney+. Paolini will reportedly co-write the series alongside executive producer Bert Salke.
