Whaaaaa? That’s exactly what we said when we read about this crazy news. Recently, because of the recent Evil Dead remake, there has been talks of a Evil Dead 4 featuring the original timeline and Ash. Now we know the film could actually be ARMY OF DARKNESS 2. Read on for the details.
Our friends at Shocktillyoudrop.com caught up with the folks behind Evil Dead and found out the following.
Via STYDNews: According to Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures producing partner Rob Tapert, they were never talking about doing an Evil Dead 4 but actually doing a direct sequel to Army of Darkness. Jaws on floor people.
“That would be Army of Darkness 2,” Tapert corrected the earlier news story when we talked to him at the movie junket. “Everybody calls it Evil Dead 4 but Army of Darkness wasn’t called Evil Dead anywhere except by the fans.”
STYD News continues: At the same Q&A last night, Bruce Campbell told the audience that he’s fine if the younger actors take over the franchise allowing his three movies to stand alone and apart.
If the franchise continues off the original series, doesn’t that mean Ash HAS to return? We think he should. The comic book series Army of Darkness did a great job of revealing what happens to Ash after Army of Darkness ended. Check it out if you can find it.
“Sam threatens this every six months,” he told us during the same interview. “I’ve heard this a thousand times, because in the back of his mind, he never wants to let go, because he loved making these movies. We all loved making them together. They were a nightmare to make, very difficult, but they lasted the test of time, so he’s not going to let that go, and I’m never going to say ‘no.’ It’ll be me and a walker fighting some other old guy. But that’s what he does and who knows? It may happen.”
And what about that sequel to Evil Dead, which played like gangbusters at the South by SouthWest Film Festival last night? We asked Jane Levy if she had heard any of the crazy stuff they might do to her in the sequel, which she’s already signed on to do.
“They haven’t actually, but Shiloh has a secret,” she said about her co-star who plays her brother in the upcoming remake. “He knows stuff but I don’t, but I’m excited for it.”
More news soon we hope.
