Lucy Lawless Joins the Cast of Ash vs. Evil Dead

Ash vs Evil Dead Complete Collection

Ash vs. Evil Dead - Poster for Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead.

We have just learned that Lucy Lawless will be joining the cast of Ash vs. Evil Dead.  She will play Ruby who is convinced that Ash is the cause of the recent outbreak of evil.

Lawless joins a cast that already includes Bruce Campbell as Ashley J. Williams, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell and Jill Marie Jones as Amanda Fisher.

As we told you previously, Starz has ordered a total of ten episodes of the upcoming series.

Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell will be executive producing the show. We also previously reported that Raimi has signed on to direct the first episode for the cable network. The series will be filming on location in New Zealand this Spring and is set for a late 2015 premiere.

In the original The Evil Dead, Ash, his girlfriend, and a couple of their buddies trek to a cabin in the woods for a break from the pressures of school, studying, and day-to-day life. Shortly after the friends arrive at their destination, they discover The Book of the Dead and tape recordings of incantations from the book. Against their better judgment, they listen to the spells and unleash an ages old evil that rises from the woods and attempts to take possession of each and every one of their souls.
