When the remake or the re-imagined Evil Dead arrived earlier this year, news surfaced that a sequel was in works. However, this was not a sequel to that Evil Dead (by Fede Alvarez). No, in fact the news about the sequel pertained to the original Evil Dead Trilogy and that a sequel to Army of Darkness was indeed being thought of. It seems as if the movie is now going forward.
Bruce Campbell recently appeared at a Wizard World Convention in Nashville and when asked if there was going to be a sequel to Army of Darkness Campbell replied: “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 used to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here. He then joked, “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.”
It seems like a tease, but Campbell followed up his statement with “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
