The rumors sway with the wind on whether or not there’ll be an Army of Darkness sequel, and currently the wind is blowing in the “yes” direction.
Don’t go gettin’ your flag unfurled telling us that it ain’t true, because we’re the first to admit that all this is only speculation at this point (even if Bruce Campbell has said “yes” to doing it and Fede Alvarez has tweeted that Sam Raimi will direct it). However, online sources are telling us that Sam and Ivan Raimi are working on a script that will star Bruce Campbell. The talk is also indicating an approximate 2016 release for Army of Darkness II (not Evil Dead IV).
We’re going to holster our boomstick, however, because there’s no green light on this project just yet. While Campbell has said that Sam is working on a script, he’s also said the following on the Army of Darkness II matter:
Sam threatens this every six months. I’ve heard this a thousand times, because in the back of his mind, he never wants to let go, because he loved making these movies. We all loved making them together. They were a nightmare to make, very difficult, but they lasted the test of time, so he’s not going to let that go, and I’m never going to say ‘no.’
We’ll keep you posted as details are revealed.
