Wish Sam Raimi Was Directing ARMY OF DARKNESS 2? Wish Granted!
Last week, Bruce Campbell, revealed that he would be returning as Ash for an Army of Darkness 2 and today, Fede Alvarez, the director of the recent Evil Dead remake, tweeted that Sam Raimi ("Oz: The Great & Powerful") will be directing it. Come voice your opinion.
Gimme some sugar, baby. Last week at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, Bruce "The Chin" Campbell ("Burn Notice") surprised attendees when he confirmed that he will once again play Ash in a sequel to the 1992 cult classic, Army of Darkness. And today, Fede Alvarez, was asked by one of his Twitter followers if he would direct Army of Darkness.
Now, that's groovy news. I'm a huge fan of the 1992 film. Few films have ever been able to strike the right balance of comedy, fantasy and horror, quite like Army of Darkness. Not to mention that the dialogue is chock full of the most quotable quotes.
Army of Darkness was written and directed by Sam Raimi. His brother Ivan co-wrote the script. The cast included: Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams/Evil Ash, Embeth Davidtz as Sheila, Marcus Gilbert as Lord Arthur, Ian Abercrombie as Wiseman, Richard Grove as Duke Henry the Red, Bridget Fonda as Linda, Patricia Tallman as Possessed witch and Ted Raimi as Cowardly warrior / Second supportive villager / Anthony, the S-Mart clerk. On a budget of $13 million, the film pulled in $21 at the worldwide box office.
