I wonder what they're doing this time, another 're-imagining' of the first AoD or a whole new story? Seems odd to go back to that setting.
The thing in that article that puzzles me more though is that Evil Dead remake is also getting a sequel. How the hell did that happen?
The remake made a lot of money and was really very popular. Hence the sequel.
I read somewhere that they'll try and merge the two of them together in Army Of Darkness 3 or Evil Dead 3, whichever comes first.
Evil Dead 2 (remake) looks as though it's not happening. Army of Darkness 2 is full steam ahead.
I've only seen Army of Darkness once, and it was a while ago, but I remember thinking it was awful. "Zany" and not in a good way. Anyone fancy sticking up for it and making me see it again?
I say that having enjoyed ED1 and ED2 I think is pretty much perfect.

There are multiple versions of it, so it depends which one you get.
Rami got carrier away with the zany, and made a mess of a film. The studio re-cut it to something bit more coherent and flowing (and shorter). There are also two alt endings, which (I think) have appeared with both cuts at some point. There's the one Raimi and Campbell wanted, and the one the studio made them do afterwards.
The studio's US theatrical version is (unfashionably) the best, but Raimi's original ending it more true to the series. I think this is basically when the current version that is on DVD release in the UK is.
Either way, it is a very different film to ED 1+2.
