‘Army of Darkness 2’ Sam Raimi to Direct

Hopefully, everything you hear on Twitter is true. Because if it is, then Sam Raimi, the mind behind the original Evil Dead franchise is set to direct the next installment in the Army of Darkness franchise.

On Saturday, Fede Alvarez, the director of the latest Evil Dead reboot, answered a question from an anxious fan who wanted to know if he would be directing the new Army of Darkness film due out in 2016.

The answer the fan got is bound to excite any deadite who happened to come across the tweet.

I don’t know about you, but the first thing I heard in my head upon hearing the news was “Groovy”, in the little Ash-like voice in my head.

With the exception of The Princess Bride, Army of Darkness is probably one of the greatest films in regards to movie one-liners. The film was able to capture the perfect balance of horror, comedy, and all around timing. Honestly, though…it was the brilliant comedic timing of Bruce Campbell that really brought this franchise to the cult status it is today.

Here is a look at some of the best quotes from Army of Darkness. *Warning: Mild Language*

Army of Darkness 2 is tentatively scheduled for a 2016 release date.

    Idk. But i think they should do a crossover with the reboot. a crossover in time that leads into the original franchise. and it could be possible. cuz while ash was lost in time he wasnt there when it happened again . And other fact could be that he in the second movie when the women said the spell really casted out the demons to the army of darkness. and that was left behind but in present times other stuff happened and that. Idk but i think it would be amazing to see ash meeting Mia in the series.
