Sam Raimi to Direct 'Army of Darkness 2'

Fede Alvarez, the director of the recent 'Evil Dead' remake, confirms that the helmer of the original trilogy will reprise his role behind the lens for the upcoming sequel.

Sam Raimi, who directed the original "Evil Dead" trilogy, will return to his post as a helmer for "Army of Darkness 2". The confirmation comes straight from Fede Alvarez, the director of the "Evil Dead" remake which was released this April.

Alvarez was asked by a fan on Twitter if he would take the helming duty for the upcoming sequel to 1992's "Army of Darkness". "Sam Raimi will!" so the Uruguayan director gave a definite answer to that question.

The original cast Bruce Campbell, who co-produced the recent remake with Raimi, is expected to reprise his demon-slashing role in the forthcoming sequel. He recently assured at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con that the movie was happening despite the long delay.

"The last one was twenty-two years ago. I just haven't been racing to do it. Sam Raimi is just a little bit busy making the biggest movies in Hollywood. I used to be busy. Now I'm not. That's why I'm here," the actor explained.

He went on to joke, "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 all right. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it," before concluding with a note, "All right, sir, the answer is yes."

While Raimi moves forward with "Army of Darkness 2", Alvarez hopes to make a sequel to his "Evil Dead" reboot. After the release of both films, the two worlds (Jane Levy's Mia and Campbell's Ash) might come together for one final installment. "I think seven is a nice number," Campbell said.
