While Sam Raimi has officially come forward to say that the film IS his next priority, someone else who we all highly respect around these parts has not only confirmed that the film is happening, but, he will also be involved.
Yes, ladies and gents, Bruce Campbell is on for Army of Darkness II!
Recently, according to ComicBook.com, Bruce Campbell was at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con on Friday, and while there, a fan popped the question, “Are you going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness?”
Campbell’s response was as follows;
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.
Campbell finally came clean on a serious note;
Alright sir, the answer is yes.
So, guys, excited?
