Whether its official, teasing or an underhanded way of testing the market to see how much interest there is out there studios, producers and filmmakers love to stir the pot. Despite 'The Evil Dead's Bruce Campbell verbally reaffirming the development of 'Army of Darkness 2' a couple of weeks ago at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con the actor has since been speaking with Erin Darling at Comikaze and told her "It's all Internet b.s. - there's no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel". So just what the hell is going on?
Campbell continues to talk about the spread of misinformation which seems wholly unjust particularly as these quotes and stories are being picked up directly from the horses mouth. Aside from Campbell's 'mis-interpreted'(?) statements you must remember also that even more recently 'Evil Dead' remake director Fede Alvarez had been talking about Sam Raimi's intentions to direct and that a script is even in the works.
So what is more likely? General hearsay and rumours have been blown out of proportion by fans and the media like so many other projects? OR we're purposely being given the runaround for runaround's sake? Either way it gets us talking about a potential sequel and with that momentum even a no-go project can quickly become a greenlit hit.
