When it comes to Sam Raimi, it wouldn’t have surprised me at all if he let a new up-and-comer get behind the camera for Army of Darkness 2. And while we’ve never doubted that he was going to direct the follow-up to his 1992 Evil Dead sequel, it’s nice to see some solid confirmation in writing.
Fede Alvarez, who directed this year’s Evil Dead remake, was asked on Twitter if he would be directing Army of Darkness 2. Alvarez, who is currently writing Evil Dead 2 with Rodo Sayagues, responded with confirmation that Raimi will be taking the helm! You can see the tweet below…
Just last week Bruce Campbell confirmed his involvement, which really makes it sound as if momentum is picking up.
The question that remains is as to which will come first, Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness 2 – and might we see the two franchises eventually collide?!
