CM Punk has upped his horror cred with his film Girl On The Third Floor recently hitting Netflix. With it, a large outcry of fans think that CM Punk should play Ash Williams in the next chapter of The Evil Dead. Now, Bruce Campbell himself has taken to Twitter to speak his mind on the matter.
Apparently, Campbell agrees with the fans on CM Punk playing Ash… well sort of.
“You know what? CM Punk is great! He should play a guy in a horror series named Nash, or Bash, or Lash. With all due respect, the name Ash is, like the best table at a restaurant, reserved.” Campbell Tweeted.
So maybe not Ash Williams himself, but perhaps a Nash Williams in an alternate Evil Dead dimension.
You know, The Evil Dead has always been a bonkers series. So, this totally works for me. As long as they never try to play it straight, we are in for a good time.
Campbell remains steadfast in his retirement from Ashley Williams but still serves as producer along with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. The next Evil Dead film is currently in the works from a filmmaker that Rami hand selected.
What do you guys think? Think CM Punk would make a good “Nash” Williams? Let us know in the comments section.
