Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead) has a sequel to his cult classic horror-comedy My Name Is Bruce in the works dubbed Bruce Vs. Frankenstein.
And today, Campbell talked about the flick which he wants the movie to be The Expendables of horror with Kane Hodder and Robert Englund.
He tells Diabolique: “With Bruce vs Frankenstein, I talked with Mike Richardson, who is my partner on this and we’re going to start with a graphic novel. So, I am going to adapt the screenplay. We’re going to put that out first so people in the industry can get a better sense of it. Mike has been selling a lot of projects to Netflix and he said that’s kind of the way to go with his material and fantasy stuff so he suggested we do that first. We’ll get a great artist, sell it in comic book form, people can totally see it and as a director, it’s kind of like doing storyboards.“
He adds: “It’s a tremendous amount of extra prep that I can do just by going through it because I actually have to think about pages, panels, and descriptions. It’s a format that’s not my normal format. Screenplay format, I can fart, I got that down. This is different from the way it looks on the page so it will be a very interesting translation process.”
He says: “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 taekwondo 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.”
Bring it on, I say!
