Raimi to Direct Army of Darkness 2?

According to Twitter

It was only 6 days ago that Bruce Campbell revealed to the world that a sequel to Army of Darkness was indeed happening (read that story here). Now it appears that Sam Raimi will be directing that sequel as well. Are the boys back together, again?

Evil Dead (2013) director Fede Alvarez is saying that it is so. Alvarez tweeted that he will not be directing the sequel to Army of Darkness and in fact Raimi will return to the franchise he started. Alvarez and Campbell have also been teasing the two parallel Evil Dead franchises that could lead to a crossover film starring heroine Mia (Jane Levy) and Campbell’s Ash.

This is just one man’s Twitter, but it only makes sense that Raimi would return as director. We’ll keep following this development as it happens.

 Also, I loved the idea that Campbell had of making Ash all old and stuff.  LOL  Pure comedy horror GOLD.

I recently watched the Evil Dead remake and loved it. I know they kept saying it was a quasi-reboot but as I watched the movie, I got the sense that it could easily fit in the Ash-Evil Dead timeline. They were just a bunch of kids that went to the cabin, 30 years after Ash and co.

 So, monkeys finally flew out of Campbell's butt.  I believe that is what he has said for over two decades about a sequel ever getting made.  Now this is good news.  I hated the ED remake (seriously, it was awful. The audience laughed out loud and not because it was intentionally funny.)  This makes me a happy camper.
