It’s been 32 years since the release of Sam Raimi‘s superhero/Universal Monsters hybrid Darkman, and many have been wondering if Universal has any plans to ever bring the franchise back to life. In fact, original star Liam Neeson was recently asked about a potential sequel, and he said that he’d be “very interested in reading the script” for such a project.

On that note, filmmaker Josh Ruben (Scare Me, Werewolves Within) has been lobbying to direct a new Darkman reboot movie for a while now, frequently tweeting about his desire to bring the Sam Raimi superhero back to life. What are the chances of that happening? Well, in a new chat with The Wrap this week, Raimi indicates that sequel talks are underway!

Raimi tells The Wrap, “Yes. Universal is talking about a Darkman sequel.”

“There’s a producer attached,” Raimi continues this intriguing tease. “I haven’t heard the story yet or gone into it, I’ve been so busy with [Doctor Strange]. But I think it’s cool.”

Liam Neeson played Peyton Westlake/Darkman in the original 1990 movie, “A brilliant scientist left for dead who returns to exact revenge on the people who burned him alive.”

Darkman was followed by two sequels – Darkman II: The Return of Durant in 1995 and Darkman III: Die Darkman Die in 1996 – with Arnold Vosloo taking over the titular role.
