“Hail to the King baby!” It’s been a long 22 years in the making, but we now have as solid a confirmation as ever that Army of Darkness 2 is going ahead.
Not only will the film definitely see the light of day (although we may have to potentially wait another 2 years), but it will be directed by the series’ original horror mastermind Sam Raimi! A tweet from Evil Dead reboot director Fede Alvarez definitively confirms as much;

This comes after Bruce Campbell‘s response to a fan asking if the project was a go and if he was involved at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, where he at first facetiously pondered the possible antics of an older Ash, before getting serious and stating,“Alright sir, the answer is yes.” So everybody, get your boomsticks loaded! Also, the aforementioned Alvarez will continue work on a sequel to his much more straight-horror Evil Dead reboot, with rumours of a crossover moment/film, introducing that timeline’s main protagonist Mia to Ash down the line. Which film releases first is another question…
