Bruce Campbell confirmed that a sequel to "Army of Darkness" is in the works.
According to, Campbell, who portrayed "Ash Williams" in the Evil Dead movies, confirmed that Army of Darkness 2 is in the works during an appearance at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con on Friday.
His confirmation of the sequel was a response to a question ask during the convention about the chances of a sequel being made, according to IGN:
“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.
“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.”
Then, according to IGN, he took a more serious tone and said, "Alright sir, the answer is yes."
The Verge reported that Sam Raimi, who directed the first Army of Darkness, said earlier this year that he was threatening Campbell every six months that he was going to do a sequel, and would make sure Bruce got in shape to play "Ash" again.
The last time Campbell played "Ash" was when he made a cameo in Fede Alvarez's remake of Evil Dead, according to The Verge.
While no release date has been announced, Bloody Disgusting reported in September that Alvarez said Raimi had already started writing the script for Army of Darkness 2.
