Fede Alvarez says Sam Raimi will direct Army of Darkness 2

10.28.2013

When Bruce Campbell told fans that he would star in the sequel to ARMY OF DARKNESS, some took it as the typical charm of the B-movie legend and not an actual confirmation. While we have heard that Sam Raimi and his brother were generating ideas for EVIL DEAD 4, it still didn't seem like it was really happening. Even the existence of an IMDb page stating that ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 is coming in 2016 didn't convince anyone. Well, how about this?

Fede Alvarez, the director of the excellent EVIL DEAD remakequel that hit theaters earlier this year, tweeted the following.

Now, Alvarez certainly has a good working relationship with Campbell and Raimi through EVIL DEAD, but could he be this certain that this is moving forward? Would he even share this information so confidently if it wasn't actually happening? Of course he could, this is Hollywood after all. Nothing is certain until the trailer hits so Raimi could drop out at any second and say he is just producing or writing. But, Raimi has also been clear that he wants to make EVIL DEAD 4/ARMY OF DARKNESS 2.

ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 could be coming by 2016, but wait until we actually see a press release before you believe it.

This is as positive as most rumours get with regards to this movie....

.....however I will believe it when I see a poster depicting just a chainsaw and a boomstick.
Either way I half expect them to kill off Ash in this movie and I will be there to see it.

Like the idea.

But a tweet? ...

That's what counts as news now a days?
-_-

All I'm saying is... take this with a grain of salt and don't hold your breath.

How would he know? I think the tweet is just he's way of saying he won't be directing it, and thinks there is only one man for the job. I'll believe it when I see it.

From what I've heard...

Alvarez would return for EVIL DEAD II continuing the story of Mia while Raimi and Campbell tackle Army of Darkness 2... then if all goes as planned they will unite to bring Ash and Mia together for the first ever "Evil Dead 3" and I put that in quotations because while Army of Darkness was the 3rd entity in Raimi's Dead series it's not technically Evil Dead 3. I'm a huge Raimi/Evil Dead disciple and just the possibility of either of these projects getting sequels is sheer boner inducing magic.
