Fede Alvarez has done the liberty of confirming some speculated news for us. The director of the 2013 Evil Dead reboot confirmed via Twitter that Sam Raimi will return to the Evil Dead franchise and direct Army of Darkness 2, the sequel to the 1992 film Army of Darkness.
In addition to Raimi returning (according to Alvarez) we
got confirmation earlier this week that Bruce Campbell will be returning
for the film as well.
This marks Raimi's first Evil Dead film since 1992 and puts speculation to rest that a sequel to the 2013 reboot could be considered Army of Darkness 2. There will indeed be two separate films as Alvarez is currently working on Evil Dead 2, the sequel to his reboot. Whether the films will be tied together as a means to bring the two series based off the same story together is unknown, but I wouldn't be surprised if that happened. There is no word on which film will come first, either.
Welcome back, guys!
