Just a few weeks ago, Bruce Campbell told a crowd at the Nashville Comic-Con that "yes," he would be returning for 'Army of Darkness 2.' One week later, 'Evil Dead' remake director Fede Alvarez said on Twitter that Sam Raimi would be directing 'Army of Darkness 2.' But now, when cornered at Comikaze in Los Angeles, Campbell admits there's "no reality" to an 'Army of Darkness' sequel and calls any talk otherwise just "internet bulls---."
Remember way back when 'Evil Dead' remake director Fede Alvarez, original 'Evil Dead' director Sam Raimi and even Bruce Campbell all sparked rumors of a possible 'Army of Darkness 2,' a sequel to the Campbell-led sequel to the original 'Evil Dead'? Well, apparently this is actually happening, if the actor's latest statements hold any water.
In 1992, Sam Raimi unleashed the third film in his 'Evil Dead' series. Continuing the campier, slapstick feel of 'Evil Dead 2,' 'Army of Darkness' follows Bruce Campbell's Ash as he's transported back to the middle ages to once again fight the evil dead. 'Army of Darkness' delighted fans, but also left them hungry for more adventures with Ash and his legendary boomstick.
21 years later and with rumors of a sequel on the horizon, we look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Looks like it's officially time to pack it in, Michael Westen fans. USA's 'Burn Notice' has officially gotten its own burn notice. USA announced today that the upcoming seventh season of the Jeffrey Donovan-starring spy series will close out the series, having aired on the network's schedule since 2007. 'Burn Notice' season 7 will still bring plenty of action to commemorate the end, so find out all about it inside!
There are a million reasons why an 'Evil Dead' remake shouldn't work. So many, in fact, we won't even start listing them all here. And yet this 'Evil Dead' remake is still a success (read our 'Evil Dead' review here). How is that possible? And how did they do it without the help of CGI, which is far-too-prevalent in horror movies these days? We sat down with director Fede Alvarez, producer Rob Tabert and a guy you might have heard of named Bruce Campbell, to talk about remaking one of the most beloved horror movies of all time.
Remember that 'Evil Dead 4' statement from Sam Raimi a while back? How he told a crowd of fans that he and his brother were planning to work on a script this summer? Remember how he back tracked (a lot) shortly after making said statement? Well, it turns out there's a lot still up in the air, and one aspect is the true nature of this apparent sequel. Instead of being another 'Evil Dead,' a recent update revealed, whether you've been praying for this or not, it'll be 'Army of Darkness 2' instead.
Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' trilogy is one of the touchstones of cult cinema. From the first no-budget horror film, to the frenetic, slapsticky horror-comedy of the second, to the Dungeons and Dragons and Mark Twain-inspired third film, they are marvelously entertaining movies that inspire very passionate fans. Which is why people keep asking Raimi about a fourth film. Well, he's answered, and suggests he's going to write a new sequel this summer.
