Classic horror film "The Evil Dead" is set to be brought back to life for a new TV series.

Filmmaker Sam Raimi resurrected his 1981 cult classic last year (13) for a reboot, which he co-wrote and produced with director Fede Alvarez, and now he is revisiting the scary project for a small screen adaptation. Raimi has teamed up with his brother Ivan and original The Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell to create the show, according to movie blog Bloody-Disgusting.com.

Campbell has even suggested he will take on a leading role in the series after responding to a fan's comment about the upcoming program on Twitter.com.

The devotee tweeted, "Only if (Campbell) is the STAR of this new tv series will I accept. Don't make a fool out of us long time fans", to which the veteran actor replied, "That's the plan."
