At the beginning of the year, we mentioned that cult favorite Bruce Campbell was working on a sequel to My Name Is Bruce called Bruce Vs. Frankenstein. While it is looking extremely doubtful that the hoped for filming start date this fall will be met, Campbell is still looking forward to getting the project rolling as soon as he could.
In a new interview with the LA Times’ Hero Blog, Campbell stated that they were still working on a script for the film, and that he wanted it to be “the Expendables of horror”-
Yeah, 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.
I have to admit that this certainly sounds like a fun idea if Campbell can get his horror film contemporaries to come out to play for this. Here’s hoping he can.
