Damn not given

Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash?

I don't know if anyone posted this yet, but:

New Line Cinema is in talks with director/producer Sam Raimi to bring to screen a slugfest between three of cult horror cinema's biggest names Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street), Jason (Friday the 13th) and Ash (Evil Dead trilogy), following the success of Freddy vs. Jason, The Hollywood Reporter says.

B-movie hero Bruce Campbell who played Ash in Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy would play the character again if the deal were to close.

Raimi who holds the rights to the Evil Dead franchise, may not direct.

The studio is determined to continue the franchise even if the deal falls through, possibly by introducing a new character to go against Freddy and Jason.
