Wouldn’t ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 technically be EVIL DEAD 4? I’m confused but I guess in the long run who gives a shit as long as Ash gets back to kicking some demon ass. If you remember right last month I told you that EVIL DEAD remake director Fede Alverez hinted at the fact that Raimi and company “might” be working on the much anticipated sequel (or fourth chapter, however you want to look at it) the the Ash saga. Turns out he might have been right.
The man himself, Bruce Campbell was recently at the Wizard World con in Nashville and in typical Bruce Campbell smart ass style had the following response when a fan accosted him with the following question.
“Are you going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness?”
Bruce: “The last one was twenty-two 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 use 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 zombie. I like it.”
While fans stood staring he finally answered with a straight answer:
Bruce: “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
That seems pretty cut and dried. Looks like ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 may be on.
My question to you is, do we care? Love to hear your thoughts.
