Over the last year there's been a little talk about Army of Darkness 2. Both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi have talked about the long-awaited sequel, and you can thank the Evil Dead remake for helping make it happen. Campbell recently showed up at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, where he was asked if the movie was really going to happen, and if Raimi was determined to make it. This was Campbell's reply:
“The last one was 22 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. . .
"Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
There's no word on when the sequel will actually be made, but it's awesome to know that at least these guys are actively working on making it happen! There's also been talk that one day we might actually see the world of the original Evil Dead films merge with the world of the remake, which would also be pretty incredible.
