Army of Darkness 2 On The Way?

This was a big year for reboots of horror classics, and one of the genre’s cult stars is hinting at another. Bloody Disgusting reports that, speaking at a Comic Con in Nashville, Evil Dead star and “B movie chin” Bruce Campbell suggested that he is involved in a sequel for the 1992 camp classic, Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness:

He told the crowd at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, ““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.

But responding to the question, “Are you going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness,” Campbell finally gave a straight “yes.”

Campbell starred as Ash in all three original Evil Dead movies. While the first two take place at the cliche cabin in the woods, Army of Darkness transports the hero to medieval times to fight demons with his chainsaw-hand.

Director Sam Raimi was already rumored to be working on the sequel.

Director Fede Alvarez released a remake of the original Evil Dead this year, starring Jane Levy. The film did well at the box office, and got decent reviews. Raimi and Campbell both served as producers; and Campbell appears in a brief nod to the audience after the credits.

January saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. And just this weekend saw the debut for the remake of another horror classic: Carrie. The film has earned mediocre reviews, but performed decently at the box office, coming in second to Gravity in its third week.

What do you think about an Army of Darkness sequel?
