Army of Darkness 2 – CONFIRMED

Director Fede Alvarez expressed his intention of joining his Evil Dead line with Sam Raimi’s original Evil Dead saga. Both the Alvarez and Raimi camps were open about creating a series of movies that would eventually join the two lines, and the current attention was paid towards whether or not a sequel to Army of Darkness (which is the sequel to Evil Dead 2) would be in the works.

During his stay at last Friday’s Wizard World – Nashville convention, Raimi’s Evil Dead star, Bruce Campbell, told the crowd:

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.

And in Bruce Campbell fashion, expanded on the idea…

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.

But ultimately:

Alright sir, the answer is yes.

And despite the fact that Campbell has been eluding a true confirmation about another Evil Dead movie, you could imagine the kind of finality this kind of confirmation possesses.
