Groovy: Bruce Campbell Confirms Geriatric Ash in ‘Army of Darkness 2’

By  · Published on October 21st, 2013

If anyone has a spare boomstick lying around, Bruce Campbell might need it. He may also need one of those special walkers with the tennis balls at the tips. According to, the actor confirmed to an audience at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con that he was going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness.

He was asked directly if he was going to make Army of Darkness 2, a question that stems from both the core of fan passion and from recent rumors that Sam Raimi was determined to make one happen. Campbell’s answer?

“The last one was 22 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 use 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.”

Obviously this comes with a shovel-full of salt. It’s not exactly our signal to go out and buy a celebratory banner, but maybe it’s a hint that we should be saving up for one. Because banners have gotten really expensive.
