Bruce Campbell Confirms ‘Army of Darkness 2’ Interest

Bruce Campbell dropped some groovy news at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con over the weekend: He’s game for more Army of Darkness action.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Campbell gave con-goers the big news about returning to the role of boom-stick-wielding, chainsaw-handed Ash Williams in a new Army of Darkness project.

“The last one was 22 years ago,” he said. “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.”

He joked about the possible Army of Darkness 2 plot: “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.”

“All right sir,” he concluded, seemingly more seriously, “the answer is yes.”
