The 53-year-old will shortly be back on our screens as ex-special forces agent Sam Axe in the fourth series of Burn Notice
, which starts on FX on Wednesday, August 24 at 9pm.
While promoting the TV show, Campbell has confirmed he is producing a new version of The Evil Dead.
He tells us: "Yeah, it's a remake. Well, it's not part four, I'll put it that way. It's a chance to keep the series alive, to tell a new story in the framework of The Evil Dead, with a new director (Freddy Alvarez) and hopefully a good, young, talented cast."
So is he going to appear in it? Campbell says: "Not really. There might be some gag character I can play, but it's all going to be young people.
