Bruce Campbell Takes Back ‘Army of Darkness 2′ Talk

So, that Army of Darkness sequel Bruce Campbell was talking about the other week? Not happening, according to … uh, Bruce Campbell.

“It’s all Internet b.s. – there’s no reality whatsoever,” the actor said in a recent interview. “These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi’s mouth, next thing you know, we’re making a sequel.”

In fairness, Campbell’s the one who ignited the fire in the first place. During a convention appearance last month, the erstwhile Ash Williams said, “the answer is yes” to a sequel, after joking about the possibilities of an aged Ash.

“Ash would have to stop occasionally from chasing some deadite to catch his breath,” he said. “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.”

But he doesn’t like it enough to make it into a movie, it seems. Time to put those Army of Darkness hopes to rest for now, then — until Campbell opens up his mouth again promptly before shoving his own words back inside, at least.

    Come on, Love AOD and Bruce Campbell, but really? The movie came out in 1992 for crying out loud. 21 years later people seriously think there would be a market for a sequel? This isn’t Rocky, like Bruce said nobody wants to see an old-man Ash fighting deadites. it would probably be really lame and dated. Some things are just classic and nostalgic and should be left alone.
