Campbell made the announcement to the folks over at Aint It Cool, though he skimped on story details. In My Name Is Bruce, Campbell plays a distorted version of himself, an alcoholic actor trapped in his own cult status to the point that when a small town has a problem with a demon that they can’t get rid of, they recruit him to vanquish it. Essentially, the story is an update of The Three Amigos, though funnier and with Bruce Campbell, which instantly makes it better than anything cinematic that Martin Short has ever starred in.
No word was made of a release date, though I wouldn’t start to look for it until mid-to-late 2012.
(And if you can’t get enough Campbell in your viewing diet, don’t forget that the USA Network series Burn Notice, in which he co-stars, returns with new episodes this Thursday.)
