We already heard earlier this year that filmmaker Sam Raimi was working on “Army of Darkness 2,” a fourth film in the original “Evil Dead” franchise that would essentially co-exist with this year’s ‘rebooted’ version of the original “Evil Dead”.
Appearing at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con on Friday, the original series’ leading man Bruce Campbell was asked by a fan if he is going to make a sequel to “Army of Darkness”. Campbell responded:
“The last one was 22 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 use to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here.
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 all right. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it… [Seriously] All right, sir, the answer is yes.”
The 55-year-old actor is still quite spry, having spent the past seven years keeping his action skills up shooting, fighting and getting tortured as a regular on USA’s recently finished “Burn Notice” series.
How soon Raimi will get around to actually making the film though, and how it will eventually crossover with the rebooted franchise, is anyone’s guess at this point.
