When doing an interview with 'The Hero Complex', about the new Evil Dead DVD commentary, Mr Campbell commented that he would like to start making a sequel to his 2007 horror-comedy movie 'My Name Is Bruce'. He says that he would like the movie to include as many well known horror stars as possible, and to be filled with comedic gags.
Hero Complex: "Speaking of your own activities, I understand you’d like to make a sequel to your most recent film, “My Name Is Bruce", called “Bruce vs. Frankenstein” and that you’d like it to be “The Expendables” of horror?"
Bruce Campbell: Yeah, “The Expendables", or more like “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.
If done well, this could be the movie that horror fans from across the globe have all been waiting for. Imagine the possibilities, it could be insane - especially having so many awesome actors and actresses, all acting out of their usual characters, it would be a riot.
I'd personally like to see Bruce, Kane, Robert, Tyler Mane, Danielle Harris, Jamie Lee Curtis, Doug Bradley, Ashley Laurence, Tobin Bell, Bill Mosely, Christopher Lee, Brad Dourif, Sid Haig, Tony Todd, Betsy Palmer (heck I could go on forever) in this horror 'Expendables' movie! I just can't get my head around how awesome that would be. Perhaps we could have all the classic monsters (Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Mummy etc) in one movie, OR MAYBE - There could be some totally impossible huge face-off between Freddy, Michael and Jason. Okay, I know I'm getting a bit carried away here, but you've gotta admit that it would be the most kick-ass movie ever made.
So my question now is, what are your thoughts on a horror/comedy mix up movie, and who would YOU like to see in it?
