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'?

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.

When it comes to tentpole studio releases, there's a pressure to get the next one made two or three years after the first, simply so the brand is still in people's heads.
