It began with Rob Tapert. The producer of the Evil Dead films hinted at an Army of Darkness 2 back in March when he was asked about the prospect of another entry in the Sam Raimi-directed series. He stated the film – if there ever was another one – would not be Evil Dead 4, but Army of Darkness 2. This set off a firestorm of rumors and hopeful rumblings that we might see Bruce Campbell play Ash one more time.
Later, at WonderCon, Evil Dead remake helmer Fede Alvarez and Campbell teased sequels, Army of Darkness 2 and a cross-over film.
But now, in spite of Campbell being quoted at a convention confirming AoD2 is in the works, now says it’s all bullshit.
“It’s all Internet b.s. – there’s no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi’s mouth, next thing you know, we’re making a sequel,” he told our pal Erin Darling at Comikaze in Los Angeles (see the full video inside).
