The living legend that is Bruce Campbell is coming to Ireland for An Evening with Bruce Campbell.

The star, best known for his role as Ash in the Evil Dead trilogy and Sam Raimi's Spider Man flicks, will visit the IFI on March 15, courtesy of the IFI and Department 51 @ Easons, as part of his book tour.

He's promoting his new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, which comes 15 years after his brilliant first memoir, If Chins Could Kill, and charts his career since then.

Since that first book the actor, director, producer, and writer has appeared in Raimi's Spider Man films, My Name is Bruce, and the warmly received Ash vs Evil Dead.

The night will include an interview with Campbell, followed by a Q&A, and the book signing.

The IFI has dashed fans' hopes of a selfie with the star, however, by stating "he regrets that he will be unable to pose for individual photos on the evening".

He will sign all copies of the book however, "plus one extra piece of official memorabilia per person at the event".

Tickets for this event are priced at €30 and include a copy of his book, Hail to the Chin.  You can purchase tickets HERE
