It would serve to be both a sequel AND a reboot. Is there any real reason to name that person "Ash"? Not really, because we all know that Bruce Campbell is Ash. Accept no substitutes.
I like the museum/library idea.
Maybe the damn book has become indestructable, and Ash (as in Bruce) want´s to keep an eye on it working as a guard (Dick Miller cameo style). Of course some kids break in during Ash´s coffie break, and accidentally unleases hell. And in the last 15-20 minutes Ash would pop up a bit drunk and pissed off, and kick some demon ass, old school style, and saves the day, again. ...or something like that
