While doing some press for the new Evil Dead film “The Chin” himself, Bruce Campbell, had some interesting news about the future of the original Evil Dead/Army of Darkness franchise. Check it out below.
“The reception to this movie [Fede Alvarez’s remake] has been pretty good so far so it encouraged Sam and I to go, ‘Well crap, maybe we should dust the old chainsaw off. If this movie helps us make another Army of Darkness – Army of Darkness 2 – then so be it,” he tells Empire Online.
That being said, Army of Darkness actually has two endings, and Campbell would prefer to take up arms for the alternate one. “I would think the post-apocalyptic [ending] because it gives great possibilities for an Omega Man movie and who he might be fighting against. It would be a very interesting world. But I’m fine either way. I’m sure Sam will concoct some ridiculous story and an outrageous journey so I don’t really care where it starts and ends. The fun thing is working again with Sam Raimi. That’s the only reason to do these incredibly difficult movies – [to] work for a guy who you really like working with and who you respect.”
If you have read the Army Of Darkness comic book from Devils Due Publishing, you will know that this make sperfect sense and is the most logical story line to follow and continue the series.
