"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
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.
