For several months, there have been reports that Sam Raimi has been working on Army Of Darkness 2. However, it’s been a little less clear if Bruce Campbell would do a sequel. As far as we can tell, he’s never given a definitive answer before as to if he would definitely be on board for a sequel.
At the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con on Friday, Campbell was asked by a fan, “Are you going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness?”
“The last one was twenty-two years ago,” replied Campbell. “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.”
When the fan told him a lot of people would want to see it, Campbell said, “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.”
Then Campbell got more serious, and he added, “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
So there you have it. The answer is yes. Bruce Campbell is going to do an Army of Darkness sequel.
