With this year’s Evil Dead reboot being actually quite good, there was talk of a sequel for that film, not to mention an Army of Darkness 2, and then a crossover between the two Evil Dead series. Star of the old-school series, Bruce Campbell has been talking at the Nashville Comic-Con (as reported by ComicBook) about his interest in Army of Darkness 2.
Campbell said, “The last one was twenty-two years ago. Ash would have to stop occasionally from chasing some deadite to catch his breath. That would be exciting. Fight in a walker. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it.”
When pushed on whether he’d want to do the film, he gave a more straightforward, “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
In terms of a walker and a cane, Campbell has previous for this, following on from his fantastic turn as an elderly Elvis Presley in Don Coscarelli’s brilliant Bubba Ho-Tep.
It seems inevitable that we’ll get another outing for Ash at some point, especially given that brief tease at the end of Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead reboot.
Expect more as it becomes available.
