When director/star/cult luminary Bruce Campbell decided to make a sequel to My Name Is Bruce instead of the long rumored Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, many of his fans were disappointed. In a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times in support of the recently released Evil Dead Blu-ray trilogy, Bruce made it clear that this upcoming sequel entitled Bruce Vs. Frankenstein would not disappoint his longtime legion of followers, and that it would certainly make-up for his decision to drop out of Bubba Nosferatu.
Bruce Vs. Frankenstein to be The Expendables of horror
With the upcoming movie, Bruce Campbell is planning to make what he calls "The Expendables" of horror, by including every living horror actor in the proposed story. Here is what he had to tell The Los Angeles Times about the project:
""Yeah, it's "The Expendables, or more like the It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World of horror. I want to get so many horror movie stars that people can't possibly not see the movie. I want to give them other stuff to do. I want to have Kane Hodder be very particular about what he eats. I want Robert Englund to be a tough guy, like he knows tae kwon do or something. I want to find out the hidden sides of all these people. Some will play themselves, some will play alternate characters as well. I may approach Kane Hodder to play Frankenstein. He could be Kane Hodder himself fighting himself as Frankenstein. It could be crazy. It's a silly concocted story that we hope to do maybe in a year or so. My breaks between Burn Notice have been getting tighter because they've been adding episodes. They're trying to trap me like a rat in the TV world, and I might just let them. There's a script, it just kind of blows right now, so no one's really seeing it. We gotta work on it. Definitely shoot in Oregon all on a stage. It's like the 300 of horror comedies. We want to make it a whole world. Someone's gotta take Frank down for good."
