Deadite lovers rejoice! Looks like Sam Raimi will be the man behind the camera for that Army of Darkness sequel after all.

That’s what Fede Alvarez, the guy who directed the rather successful Evil Dead remake, says.

When asked if he would also be directing what we’ll call, oh, Army of Darkness 2—(Army of Darkness is the third film in the original Evil Dead movie franchise)—Alvarez tweeted that it would actually be Sam Raimi who's set to sit in the director’s chair.

This is more awesome news following in the wake of Bruce Campbell’s groovy reveal that Army of Darkness 2 was indeed happening! He’ll reprise the iconic role of everyone's favorite demon-slaying, chainsaw-wielding, boomstick-carrying Ash.

Meanwhile, Alvarez will be busy working on Evil Dead 2, the sequel to the reboot flick.

Are you happy to see Sam Raimi return to the director's chair for that Army of Darkness sequel?
