Following the success of the Evil Dead remake directed by Fede Alvarez, there was talk about a direct sequel to Army Darkness by Sam Raimi’s producing partner from Ghost House Pictures, Rob Tapert. A script was also in the works by Raimi and his brother Ivan. Since then, we haven’t heard much about any progress, or if Bruce Campbell would have any involvement in Army of Darkness 2, until now!
During a Q&A session at the 2013 Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, one lucky fan asked the big question on a sequel, and guess what Campbell had to say:
The last one was 22 years ago. I just haven’t been racing to do it. Sam Raimi is just a little bit busy making the biggest movies in Hollywood. I used to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here.
Ash would have to stop occasionally from chasing some deadite to catch his breath. Maybe we could do that, I guess. That would be exciting. Fight in a walker. That would be alright. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a. I like it.
Alright, sir, the answer is yes.
If you don’t want to take our word for it, then just watch theright above to hear it from Campbell himself.
