Bruce Campbell denies Army of Darkness 2 rumor, blames internet for "misinformation"

Nov. 6, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Last month Bruce Campbell made some comments at the Wizard World Comic-Con that made it sound like he was onboard for a sequel to ARMY OF DARKNESS. Many thought he was being sarcastic, but Fede Alvarez tweeted a week later that Sam Raimi will be directing the sequel, so it seemed pretty legit.

Unfortunately, Bruce Campbell wasn't actually confirming another Ash adventure with his comments, and when the actor was asked about a sequel to ARMY OF DARKNESS by Shock Till You Drop, he blamed the internet for the "misinformation."

"It's not news. Let me dispel that right now. It's all internet B.S. There's no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of either my mouth, or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know we're making a sequel. So, unless it's announced from like Renaissance Pictures, it's not real. Or unless you have a start date, or release date. We do appreciate people's enthusiasm for another ARMY OF DARKNESS, but they should just wait until it's real. And I feel bad for people, because the internet is so prey to misinformation, it's unbelievable how much misinformation there is. So, I just encourage everybody get the real information, not just if you heard something."

Aw, you can't blame the internet for running with the words that came out of your mouth Mr. Campbell. He must know how rabid some fans are for another ARMY OF DARKNESS, and saying there will be a sequel (even jokingly) was sure to get notice, especially with Fede Alvarez tweeting about it so soon after he had made those comments.

Speaking of Alvarez, Bruce Campbell did confirm that the director will not be back for a sequel to last year's EVIL DEAD remake while talking to Shock Till You Drop. Campbell was also asked if he would ever want to be a character in a Marvel zombies movie since Ash is in several of the comics.

"I will never play the character Ash for any other director other than Sam Raimi. So if he directs it, let's go. If he doesn't, see you later."

I know it's disappointing that ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 isn't happening right now, but I do feel like someday Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell will bring Ashley James Williams back to the big screen.

Geez, let it go...

Learn to love a classic for what it was and stop trying to dredge up sequels using the same premise and same actors 20+ years later. That goes for Army of Darkness, Ghostbusters, Top Gun and every other movie out there that should let their aging actors move on and not try to re-capture lightning in a bottle. LET IT GO.

So what the hell are you doing now, Bruce?

I haven't seen anything major since I Am Bruce. Where's Bruce vs Frankenstein? All the other cameo appearances and conventions can wait. Get this shit moving!

This is a real bummer after the article saying that he was in talks to make a sequel, but I kinda figured it was just a rumor.

Stop fuckin with us

And get the movie made seriously with or with out your stupid ass. It's clear he doesn't want to be ash no more. So fine a new ash make a new Army and lets get this show on the road. Not that hard at all. Give me the money and the people and I'll go film it. Because now its just getting all to bit childish and annoying pumping fans up and then letting them down. Unless they already film it and he just wants to surprise us that'll be epic but I highly doubt it.

It doesn't need a sequel, so unless it's something Raimi and Campbell have a brilliant idea for and really want to do then just leave it be. That said if they ever do get their act together, I'm there.
