Here’s one sequel that I definitely didn’t think we’d ever see, but unfortunately, it appears that our old friend Bruce Campbell may not have a lot of career options available to him at the moment. He recently revealed plans for a sequel to his cult stinker My Name is Bruce, via the following top secret message over on Ain’t It Cool News:
“Hello everyone. Bruce Campbell here. This urgent message is short, because my keystrokes are monitored and I fear for my life. My partner at Dark Horse comics, Mike Richardson (normally a very rational and talented man), threatened to have his foot soldiers “crush my spleen” if I did what I am about to do. But the fans deserve to know, so with great trepidation I officially announce Bruce Vs. Frankenstein, the sequel to My Name is Bruce. Principal photography begins this fall in Oregon. I’d like to live long enough to see the cameras roll, so please, for the love of God, do not tell anyone – I can’t risk this announcement getting back to Mike! Thank you.”
I know a lot of people would much prefer to see him in the long-rumoured sequel to Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-Tep, and I agree… really, anything that could get him away from the director’s chair is probably a good thing. Is it a coincidence that this announcement has come just a week or so after his good friend Sam Raimi decided to part ways with the Spider-Man franchise? Surely Raimi could find a small role for Bruce in a World of Warcraft movie instead! In the meantime, I guess we’ll just have to make do. What do you think, are you interested in a sequel to My Name is Bruce or is this just a bad idea?
