While at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, Bruce Campbell finally let the cat out of the bag: his Evil Dead character Ash will see another day. Ash was last seen in 1992′s Army of Darkness and rumors have circulated the web for years about the possibility of another Evil Dead sequel. The rumors eventually trickled their way to the remake, a solid installment in the series’ universe, but clearly no replacement for the man with the killer chin.
The man himself was asked at Wizard World if a sequel to Raimi’s third Evil Dead movie was going ahead. Campbell’s official words:
“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. 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….Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
As a Sam Raimi fan, it’s always great to see him go back to his roots (Drag Me To Hell!), and according to Bloody Disgusting, Raimi has already started writing Army 2.
