We’ve been waiting for the next Army of Darkness movie for decades now but recently news has been heating up big time when it comes to progress on the production and we got another massive nugget of information today. After actor Bruce Campbell confirmed that a new Army of Darkness movie will indeed be coming, we learned today of a big name returning to the franchise.
According to Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez confirmed on Twitter that original director Sam Rami will be returning to helm the new film.

This isn’t an official announcement by Rami or anyone connected directly with the early production of the film, so let’s not read too far into this right away. But with the long wait for Army of Darkness 2 to come out, coupled with with excitement that Campbell produced by confirming that it’s happening, it’s hard not to get giddy over this information.
It’s not official though, so let’s pump the brakes before we get ahead of ourselves. Still, Rami being attached to the project is what fans want to hear and could mean that we will be getting Army of Darkness sooner rather than later.
