There has been a lot of rumors going about regarding a new Evil Dead followup, Army of Darkness 2. I personally found the recent Evil Dead reboot pretty disappointing so I’m really happy to inform you all that Bruce Campbell may very well be working on a new installment in the series.
Being asked at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con if a sequel to Raimi’s third Evil Dead movie was going ahead, 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.”
“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.”
And then Campbell said the magic words, “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
If true then perhaps we’ll also get to see the Evil Dead and Army of Darkness star act in the new movie as well.
