Well it’s finally confirmed folks. EVIL DEAD 4’s title will be ARMY OF DARKNESS 2, and Bruce Campbell will star in the much-anticipated sequel. Click the heading for details…
The Wizard World Comic Con of Nashville is known by those who frequent year after year, but this past Friday it has fallen under the scope of the nation where a festival favourite has broken some of the biggest news horror will see this year, or decade for that matter. Bruce Campbell will star in a sequel twenty something years in the making, ARMY OF DARKNESS 2.
After telling a handful jokes on stage, he began asking the audience questions and letting them ask a few back. One ingenious fan asked a question that’s been asked over and over again, but this time it yielded quite a different answer. “Are you going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness?”
Bruce had this to detail. ““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.”
The fan conveyed that a lot of people would want to see it, by which Campbell retorted, “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 with an infinitely more serious tone he shook the audience with, “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
As you can probably tell, I’m pretty excited like everyone else upon hearing this new, but there will be no instant gratification. While investigating the IMDB page for the film, a release date of 2016 can be seen. Though this is most likely subject to change, simply the thought of two more years is too long to wait. Agree?
