Groovy! Bruce Campbell says yes to Army of Darkness 2

10.21.2013

We already knew that Sam and Ivan Raimi were writing EVIL DEAD 4. But we haven't heard Bruce Campbell say anything about his involvement. Obviously you can't do another film without Ash! I mean, you can but... BLASPHEMY!

Good news is that Campbell is down for another go at it! Groovy!

During Wizard World Comic Con in Nashville, the actor was asked if he was going to make a sequel to ARMY OF DARKNESS. Here's what he had to say minus his boomstick:

"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 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 alright. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it.”

“Alright sir, the answer is yes.”

Ahhhhh. It's a thing of beauty.

Check out Campbell's charisma below:

I met Bruce Campbell years ago

and I asked him if there was going to be an Evil Dead 4 and he told me "When Monkeys fly out of my butt".
well, this seems to be that time.

He gives a different answer every time this question is asked, but it ALWAYS hints toward "yes". It's hinted toward "yes" since 2002, and it'll probably continue to hint toward "yes" until Raimi dies of old age. It's like a slightly more sarcastic, self-aware version of Dan Ackroyd talking about Ghostbusters 3.

I always thought Dark Man would continue with him as the hero ...but nope they went the way of Zartan (and it turned out to be a blessing in disguise). Sucess is relative and I'm sure he can look back as having a solid career...but successful in the way most might see it? Why did he never get more of that type of sucesss? From goodness in the form of his Evil Dead roles to Bubba Ho-Tep...I don't get it.

I would LOVE to see Bruce and his boom stick reek some havoc again!

AWESOME! Of course I'm down for this as long as bruce is on board. I wasn't sure at first if Bruce was just being sarcastic, but he did say yes at the end.

Hell yes!!

I really hope to see Bruce Campbell in an Army of Darkness 2. I'm not sure if I'd see it without him.

I think that might have been commentary of all the talk of sequels to old films, which would make that sarcasm, which would make you a complete and utter waste of human space. Tell me the truth, did you think Bruno was a real guy? Or paranormal activity? Thank you TAE K, as there's little I love more than when people are being made fun of despite and don't know it, though he really just made fun of himself, which is even better. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard on this site, and bc

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard on this site, and bc of it I now believe we should have two joblos. The site has worsened all around really. So create another one, and the readers have to take another SAT or something. AND so do the writers. And find the average number, increase just a tad, and those people and writers will only have access to one of the joblos, and ppl like nin11 (oh my god that's so hateful, shame on you for such a hateful name) and the poorer writers, who don't make that score, have to go to the other stupid joblo. I know you can't kill the stupid, or all of them, but at least let me have my dream I can live in a world they don't exist

I wan't to be exited, but I don't know... could be great or could be something that should've been done a long ass time ago.

But we'll see...

I do hope he's actually being serious. I still have hope. I wont believe anything until theres some sort of offical word on it, but man it would be thee number one film I'd want to see over anything else.

I'm wondering if this would be purely Army of Darkness 2 or somehow be linked to the new Evil Dead remake's universe. Also, would it be a direct story after Army of Darkness' alternate ending? Anyhow, I'm just glad Bruce says yes to Army of Darkness 2.

Now that Burn Notice is done and gone, Bruce might as well toss around the idea of Army of Darkness 2. As much as I LOVE the idea, 20 years ago would have been better. I mean look how well Ghostbusters 3 is going. It's just been too long. Even Beetlejuice 2 worries me.

Yeah but in a sort've half assed way after he's been sarcastic about the possibilty. It didn't feel like this anything offcial and more like Camphell goofing round. I wouldn't mind being proved wrong and getting the film though.
