Obviously it wasn’t going to go on without him, and the chin has been one of the franchise’s most enthusiastic cheerleaders, but nonetheless Bruce Campbell has officially signed on for Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 4 Evil Dead 5 Army Of Darkness 2.

Speaking at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con (and recounted by ComicBook.com), Campbell teased it out like the consummate showman, saying, ““The last one was 22 years ago. I just haven’t been racing to do it. Sam Raimi is just a little bit busy making the biggest movies in Hollywood. I used to be busy. Now I’m not. That’s why I’m here…

“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. . .

“Alright sir, the answer is yes.”
