Perlman confirms Bubba Nosferatu
Ron Perlman has already been confirmed to replace Bruce Campbell in the sequel to Bubba Ho-Tep, Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, but we haven't really heard much from the production since.
Well now Perlman has confirmed that filming is going to go ahead, and he's revealed that he's doing a third series of the excellent Sons of Anarchy. What more could you want? Well, Campbell in the lead role, but that's not going to happen.
“I’ll be done shooting SONS OF ANARCHY in September, and we’re hoping to get into production on BUBBA in my hiatus between seasons two and three...I just spoke to Paul Giamatti and Don Coscarelli this morning, and we’re just moving the ball down the field, trying to get her done.”
The comment comes from Fangoria through JoBlo, and it's cracking news that Sons of Anarchy is going to a third season, and, Bruce Campbell disappointment to the side now, superb news that the Bubba film is kicking off.
I think we have to get over the disappointment and deal with what's happening now and what's going to happen. For fans of Bubba Ho-Tep (Filmstalker review), which was superb, Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires is going to happen and that's got to be a good thing, hasn't it?
Well when I heard Bruce Campbell talk at the showing of his film My Name is Bruce at Edinburgh's Cameo, he said that he didn't like the script and couldn't agree the direction the film was going for the story and his character, and that's why he didn't join in.
For me that's worrying, because the strength of that first film was in the characters and the whole underlying storyline about how we treat and view the elderly, or so I believed. That was the connection with reality that caught me certainly. I wonder if that was the connection that was missing for Campbell?
