Bruce Campbell interviewed recently at Comikaze denies the rumors Army of Darkness 2 is happening:
So until Ghost House Pictures issues a press release. Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.
Apparently Rodo Sayagues’s interview with Gorosito was lost in translation and Evil Dead 2 is still happening with Fede Alvarez on board but currently Army of Darkness 2 is the priority. Evan Dickson from Bloody Disgusting got in touch with Fede Alvarez and here’s what he had to say:
I just got in touch with Alvarez and he confirms that, “stuff got lost in translation” with Sayagues in the Gorosito interview published earlier today. He elaborated, “Rodo meant 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 basically don’t believe everything you read on the Internet folks!
Rodo Sayagues has told GOROSITO.TV that he and Fede Alvarez are longer part of Evil Dead 2 and it’s possible that it will never be made. He also confirms that Sam Raimi is indeed actively working on Army of Darkness 2. Rodo also mentions other projects they are working on.
We just had an interview with RODO SAYAGUEZ, co – writer of the EVIL DEAD’s remake and constant collaborator of the director FEDE ALVAREZ, where he told us that:
- both he and Fede Alvarez are no longer part of EVIL DEAD 2.
- it is possible that the film will never be made.
-Sam Raimi is actively working on ARMY OF DARKNESS 2.
- his next film will be MACHINA, and is the story of a teenager who gets in troubles with a large corporation in Los Angeles of the near future.
- next year they will be working on several other projects including DANTE ‘S INFERNO and an original horror film.
- they also have at least two more projects that are in a very early stage of development.
Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. Bruce Campbell on a recent phone interview on the Bob Rivers Show says Army of Darkness 2 is not not not, not going to be made. Here’s video of the full interview:

Bruce Campbell finally confirms that he will do Army of Darkness 2. It’s been known since SXSW that Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan have started working on the script for Army of Darkness 2 but Bruce would always dodge the question when asked if he would return to his role as Ash in Army of Darkness. Bruce Campbell finally confirms at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con this past Friday.
Bruce was asked by a fan:
“Are you going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness?”
“The last one was twenty-two years ago,” replied Campbell. “I just haven’t been racing to do it. Sam Raimi is just a little bit busy making the biggest movies in Hollywood. I use to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here.”
When the fan told him a lot of people would want to see it, Campbell said, “Ash would have to stop occasionally from chasing some deadite to catch his breath. Maybe we could do that, I guess. That would be exciting. Fight in a walker. That would be alright. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it.”
Then Campbell got more serious, and he added, “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
