About a month or so ago, Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez made an announcement that teased about the sequel to Army of Darkness was being worked on. He announced that the original series director Sam Raimi was focusing on the next Army of Darkness film.
While at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, Bruce Campbell seemed to acknowledge both this role in the film and that it is really happening.
When questioned by a fan, Campbell stated:
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.
While that segment seems to be more in the joking line, Campbell did end this segment by saying:
Alright sir, the answer is yes.
So, how excited would all of you be to see a sequel to Army of Darkness?
