Bummer! Bruce Campbell says ‘Army of Darkness 2’ is not happening, it’s all internet BS




I give up, I really do. One minute Army of Darkness 2 is happening, the next minute it is not. After the huge success of Fede Alvarez’ Evil Dead reboot, horror fans have been talking Army of Darkness 2, Evil Dead 2 and also possible plans to see Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness sequel and Alvarez’ Evil Dead sequel come together in the seventh Evil Dead based film.

Now, while we keep getting confirmations (just three weeks ago Bruce Campbell answered a fan question “is Army of Darkness 2 actually happening” with “All right, sir, the answer is yes”, at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con), today comes some truly devastating news.

While being interviewed by Shock Till You Drop at this past weekends Comikaze Expo, Campbell was naturally asked about Army of Darkness 2 and the sequel to Alvarez’ Evil Dead reboot. The results are not good.

Campbell told the reporter that Army of Darkness 2 is NOT  happening, stating “it’s all internet b.s. – there’s no reality to it whatsoever.” He continued, “These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi’s mouth; next thing you know, we’re making a sequel.

He also said that Alvarez was “lost” for directing Evil Dead 2, saying he was moving on to direct another film and that he would not be making another Evil Dead film. However, just last week Alvarez said there are still plans in place for Evil Dead 2, but he said Army of Darkness 2 was a priority, and that he will also be directing Machina first. Alvarez told Bloody Disgusting just last week  “we’re not actually making ‘Evil Dead 2 right now because the priority is Sam’s ‘Army of Darkness 2.’ But the plan of making a sequel to our ‘Evil Dead’ is very much alive.

So, it is all a bit of a mess, and it feels like our emotions and expectations are just being played with. One person confirms the sequels are happening, then another denies, then the person who confirms denies, and the person who denied confirms. It is hard to keep up, and it is hard to know what exactly is happening.

However, for clarity on exactly what Campbell said, the upsetting interview is below.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
