Freddy vs Jason vs Ash still possible?

Ash.jpgIn an interview with Ronny Yu, the director of Fearless (review) and Freddy vs. Jason, he talks about Fearless, but at the end he mentions the possibility of a sequel to the Freddy vs Jason film, one with Ash from Evil Dead.

Now this has been talked about before and very excitedly by fans of all the characters involved, but we all thought it was dead. Here's what Yu said in an interview with Coming Soon when asked about the possible sequel:

Yeah, they've been talking about it, and they even talk about bringing Ash [from Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" movies] into the equation, and I thought it's terrific. It's almost like an updated version of "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly." If they really want to do it and they want me to do it, I'd love to do it. It would be a lot of fun.

Well it's still quite far off, but the fact that it's still being talked about is a good thing, and I love that comparison to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Would you still want to see a film like this, and are the three characters worthy of being in the same film together? Who would win?



Oh God, please let it be true. This will be the end! Ash will send Freddy and Jason back to hell! After this, they will be no more.

That's all well and good, but Ronny Yu is just stirring the pot here. Sam Raimi, if he hasn't changed his mind, does not want to release Ash for this franchise. He has gone on record as saying he still has plans for that character and they do not involve Freddy or Jason. As far as I know, Evil Dead and everything that goes along with it is still owned by Raimi, so it's still his decision.

I'm sure I wrote about Raimi saying no in my previous writing life, and yes, if he has the rights then it's hs decision, but to be fair Yu is saying nothing other than there are talks and it would be good.

Well if they cannot obtain the rights to the Ash character, why not have Freddy vs. Jason vs. Bruce Campbell? It can be a sequel to the upcoming My Name Is Bruce.

Im all for it im a huge fan of all three and to see them square off would be a dream come true. And there dosent have to be an ending!! Ash could send them to hell but Freddy could convince Jason to help him get back at ASH for what he did to them. And if they did thet they could use the ideas from some of the comics they made about the three of them.
