Sam Raimi Confirmed to Direct Army of Darkness 2?

Chris Savage

army-of-darkness-1Here we go again guys, you ready for some more Army of Darkness 2 news? Who am I kidding, of course you’re!

Recently it was announced that Bruce Campbell will be returning for the new Army of Darkness film, and now, word has come that the master of the Evil Dead could be returning to helm.

Now of course, it was pretty much a given that Sam Raimi would direct the sequel to Army of Darkness, but until it is confirmed from the man himself we will hold back a slight but.

In any event, Fede Alvarez was asked the looming question on Twitter via Benjamin Thiele, “Will you be directing the Army of Darkness 2 movie?” In which Alvarez replied;

“@thielebenjamin: Hey @fedalvar will you be directing the Army Of Darkness 2 movie?” Sam Raimi will!

I mean, I’m pretty sure Fede Alvarez has the inside scoop, but until Raimi confirms this himself, we shall see. But I mean, c’mon, we all know he will direct.

So guys, are you more stoked for Army of Darkness 2, or the sequel to Evil Dead 2013?

        This film would never make it if Sam and Bruce weren’t involved. Period.

        Bruce better get in shape if their going to use him again. Hopefully someday they will lead into a Army of Darkness vs. Freddy vs. Jason movie from the comic. That would be a worth it if done right.

        Sam better not screw this one up. His last couple of movies have been really terrible.

          Outside of Spiderman 3, what are you speaking of? The Oz movie was pretty cool, and Drag Me to Hell was AWESOME! Those were has last couple movies.

          I don’t know what you’re talking about but I thought Oz the great and powerful sucked. Drag me to hell I didn’t care for either. All his other movies are awesome.

          You are right about Spiderman 3 though. I’ll agree with that

        Ya..as long as Bruce is there it stands a chance

          It’s The Evil Dead 4 but most people are referring to it was Army Of Darkness 2. I don’t really care what it’s called, if Bruce and Sam are involved everything’s groovy!

        i’ll believe this when the first trailer is released until then…
