Bruce Campbell Pretends He Never Started Those 'Army of Darkness 2' Rumors


Hey, remember when Bruce Campbell said he was probably reuniting with Sam Raimi for an Army of Darkness sequel? Because it seems like he doesn't.

Speaking at Comikaze recently, Campbell fielded a fan's question about another Army by saying "the answer is yes" (well, he made a bunch of wisecracks first, but you get the picture). Naturally, people kind of freaked out -- it's been 20 years since Campbell last wielded his boom stick as the deadite-slaying Ash, after all -- and reporters quickly jumped on the case, only to discover that Campbell had...kind of changed his mind.

Shock Till You Drop reports that Campbell was approached by the Pop Fix, and that he responded by insisting that there was no truth "What. So. EVER" to reports of a sequel, and he urged fans to "get the real information" rather than relying on what he deemed "internet bulls—."

Given that said "bulls—" reportedly came from Campbell's own mouth, it's a little perplexing to hear him saying this now. But hey, who knows what's really going on here? Maybe his first comments came too soon, or maybe he was just offering a sarcastic response to a question he's probably been asked a million times over the last couple of decades. Or maybe -- and this is our preferred version of events -- Campbell and Sam Raimi are secretly developing an Army of Darkness 2 that they'll drop on us all of a sudden sometime in the very near future.
