Now that the ultimate slasher-flick bad boy face off is about to hit screens in the form of New Line’s Freddy vs. Jason one has to wonder just how the hell could you possibly top such an over-the-top premise with any kind of a sequel?
Well according to the folks over at Creature Corner word has it you do it by tossing in yet another fan favorite horror character into the mix. Perhaps a common enemy for Freddy and Jason to team up against? Perhaps “Ash” from the Evil Dead movies?
Reliable sources have revealed that one of the current ideas being tossed around includes a scenario where Freddy and Jason would team-up against a common enemy: Bruce Campbell as Ash from the “Evil Dead” films. As crazy as it might sound, this concept has apparently been met with a great deal of enthusiasm in the upper-echelons of New Line Cinema. (Not to mention the degrees of separation: “FvsJ” producer Sean S. Cunningham directed Campbell in last years “Terminal Invasion” for the SciFi Channel.)
Talk about a horror movie fanboy’s wet dream. I have no idea how they could make something like that work, but then a lot of people thought a match between Freddy and Jason would never happen either so I suppose anything is possible.
