There were whispers a couple of months back that Bruce Campbell would reprise the role of ‘Ash’ (from the “Evil Dead” series) for a sequel to “Army of Darkness”.

At Wizard World Nashville last week, Campbell was asked about the rumours. Rather than laugh these ‘Ash reprise’ suggestions off, he actually offered up a more positive, fan-pleasing response.

“The last one was twenty-two years ago,” replied Campbell, says ComicBook.com. “I just haven’t been racing to do it. Sam Raimi is just a little bit busy making the biggest movies in Hollywood. I use to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here.”

Campbell was informed by a fan that everyone would love to see it happen, and that’s when the actor started talking more favourably about the idea.

“Ash would have to stop occasionally from chasing some deadite to catch his breath. Maybe we could do that, I guess. That would be exciting. Fight in a walker. That would be alright. Hit them with my cane. Fake them out, have a fake heart attack, distract a zombie. I like it.”

Campbell then got a bit more serious, and added, “Alright sir, the answer is yes.”

So.. that’s a yes, he is making “Army of Darkness 2″. But again, it’s anyone’s guess when it’ll happen.
