Sam Raimi says more Evil Dead is still happening, even if Bruce Campbell’s not a part of it. Jamie Lee Curtis shares a tiny glimpse at her Halloween Kills look. Plus, American Gods adds two intriguing new recurring characters, what’s to come on The Good Place and The Flash, and a new look at Castle Rock’s own Annie Wilkes. Spoilers away!
The Little Mermaid
According to Variety, Daveed Diggs is currently in talks to voice Sebastian the Crab in Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid. Though it has yet to be confirmed, it’s likely to assume the beloved Jamaican crab will be rendered as a photorealistic, CGI crustacean which is going to be amazing.
Deadline also reports Nicholas Galitzine (Netflix’s Chambers) has joined the cast of Blumhouse’s remake of The Craft in a currently undisclosed role.
Sam Raimi once again confirmed “there’s more Evil Dead coming” during The Grudge panel at New York Comic Con.
There’s more Evil Dead coming. [Bruce Campbell is] tired of me throwing blood on him. Forty years of Bruce and those sticky syrup shirts… He wants to work again, but he just doesn’t want to play that role right now.
Tom and Jerry
Meanwhile, Chloë Grace Moretz described Tim Story’s upcoming Tom and Jerry movie as “nothing like you’ve ever seen before” in a recent interview with Screen Rant.
It’s really exciting; it’s going to be nothing like you’ve ever seen before. It really integrates live action with animation seamlessly. And it’s different than any of the movies that you’ve seen out there right now with that; it’s more indicative of the older films.
A Christmas Carol
After a bidding war, THR reports Apple is now in “final negotiations” to produce the new musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol starring Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds.

Speaking with Decider at New York Comic Con, Mark Consuelos confirmed there are no plans for Hiram to grow a mustache similar to his comic book counterpart, adding “maybe I’ll ask [showrunner] Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa], for a flashback episode, you know, early on Hiram. Or a flash-forward.”
