The feature film tells how the scientist Peyton Westlake (Liam Neeson) figured out how to make near-perfect, but still too light-sensitive, artificial skin. When his companion (Frances McDormand) attempts to bring down his town’s crime boss, Westlake is beaten to death. To take revenge, he will become Darkman, hero of the night who will track down his captors. Made in the early 1990s, Darkman is the filmmaker’s first major studio film, released after the independent horror classics evil Dead and Evil Dead II.
Raimi did not specify whether he would be personally involved in this second installment, but the confirmation that a producer is on the project is already a good sign. TV movies from 1995 and 1996, produced by Bradford Mayalready offered a sequel to the first opus: Darkman II: The Return of Durant, and Darkman III: Die Darkman Die. They had been broadcast directly on television, without going through the cinema box.
