Bruce Campbell talks Bubba Nosferatu, My Name is Bruce sequel and Hobbit

BruceCampbell.jpgBruce Campbell has revealed that although My Name is Bruce isn't even released yet, there's funding in place for the sequel. He also has some comments on Bubba Nosferatu that don't sound that Campbell is as excited as I'd have hoped, and he mentions how he thinks it's a really bad idea for Sam Raimi to take on The Hobbit.

According to the interview he says that they already have the money for the sequel, that suggests all the money, so perhaps there will be one. According to Mark Verheiden, the writer of the script, the title might well be My Name is Bruce 2 - The Quickening, however I suspect he's pulling our leg on that one. Mind you, it could be right if they already have the funding and with the pre-release hype that My Name is Bruce is getting.

On the topic of Bubba Nosferatu and the Curse of the She-Vampires, the sequel to Bubba Ho-Tep (Filmstalker review) which I loved, is still being written and when Bruce Campbell was asked when it would happen he said:

"When we have a script."

Oh...okay then. Let's just leave that one alone and hear what he has to say about the possibility of Sam Raimi helming The Hobbit. Once he realises it's not a joke and a pretty strong rumour he's quite critical of New Line and Bob Shaye:

"Bob Sha-dy? New Lies Cinema? Yeah, these are the guys that distributed the first Evil Dead, don’t forget. So you know, umm, enough said there...

...I hope that they pay Sam his overages just like they didn’t pay Peter Jackson."

Ooh, that is quite sharp. I guess he's more likely to know the insides of the story than us. I wonder with Campbell and Raimi being such tight friends if Raimi will heed Campbell's advice?

For the whole interview, head over to IESB.



Nifty interview. I simply adore Bruce Campbell and can't wait to see My Name is Bruce.
