** Jordan Peele's next film: Universal Pictures has set a December 25th 2024 release date for GET OUT, US and NOPE director Jordan Peele's next feature which is currently untitled. Marking his fourth directorial effort, the project will open just days after the third AVATAR movie hits screens on December 20th 2024.

That's not all though as a horror thriller from Peele's Monkey Paw banner has also been slated to arrive a few months earlier on September 27th 2024 with Universal also distributing that. Peele will only produce that film, not direct and no filmmaker for that one has been announced at present. Peele is currently in the middle of a five-year deal with Universal which he signed in 2019. The new film falls under the deal. (thanks to

** More EVIL DEAD?: Despite Bruce Campbell having effectively retired the Ash character following the cancellation of the Starz series in 2018, Campbell has revealed he's not averse to reprising the role – though this time there's one major stipulation. Speaking with Fangoria alongside producer Rob Tapert, Campbell says he himself is the one standing in the way of a film that would see Ash team up with Jane Levy's Mia from the 2013 reboot and the new EVIL DEAD RISE. The reason being? He wants Sam Raimi, and no one else, returning to direct the project:

"I'll go on record here! These guys don't scare me!. I worked on 'Xena,' so nothing scares me. If Sam says, 'I, Sam Raimi, will direct another EVIL DEAD movie,' then I, Bruce Campbell, will consider being in it. I don't want to be Ash, tended to by other people. Sam's the meanest director I've ever worked with, and Ash needs a little bit of that to shine. And I think Sam's the only director now who I won't punch in the face making an EVIL DEAD movie! I'm just saying, I've called Rob and Sam out, I'm not the coward that they think I am. I just want the right circumstances. Because Sam, even though he's done studio movies, he's still a good director! So, I want Sam! I'll do it for Sam." (thanks to
