Hail to the King, baby. That's what's happening on Twitter right now as the almighty Bruce Campbell has joined, just in time to confirm rumors of a fourth Evil Dead movie. If ever an actor exemplified "cult classic," it's Campbell, after starring in such gems as the aforementioned Evil Dead series, Bubba Ho-Tep, and the USA Network series, Burn Notice, among others. To the general public, Campbell is probably most recognized for his cameos in the Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man movies, but his credibility with the geek sector is white-hot.

That probably explains why both Bruce and the rumored Evil Dead sequel are trending on Twitter at the moment. Not only did Campbell join the Twitter revolution, but he also indicated the Evil Dead sequel is, in fact, real.

@TheMike31 Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell. 14 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone · powered by @socialditto

While some may be troubled by the "remake" portion of Campbell's post, the fact that they are indeed going ahead with another installment of Evil Dead is reason enough to rejoice. Granted, some pointed out the delay between Indiana Jones sequels as cause for concern, but then again, George Lucas has nothing to do with the Evil Dead series, so perhaps these fears are unfounded:

Normally, I'm against franchises returning after a 20-year absence (ahem, Indy). Evil Dead? Now that, I'm excited about: 36 minutes ago via Tweet Button · powered by @socialditto

As for the reaction to the news of Campbell, and the Evil Dead sequel, does the word "nerdgasm" mean anything to you? It's surprising that particular word didn't hit the Twitter trend list:

Yes, the word "groovy" most definitely fits here. In fact, anytime Bruce Campbell is even mentioned, the word "groovy" needs to be included somewhere. As an ode to the good news, here's a fantastic clip of Bruce in action:
