Set in a town where food falls from the sky, the toon will feature SNL's Hader as Flint Lockwood, "a young inventor who dreams of creating something that will improve everyone's life." Scary Movie starlet Faris plays Sam Sparks, a weathergirl who hides her intellect behind her perky exterior.

New York Times Does A Piece On Bruce

The New York Times featured Bruce today and how he is recently being recognized by the mainstream audience through his show 'Burn Notice'.

“A lot of the people who follow what I do only want to see me do certain things,” he said, not complaining. Some of his fans, he said, want to know why his “Burn Notice” character, a low-key former F.B.I. operative, doesn’t have more fight scenes. “I’ve been trying,” he said, “but three or four weeks ago I was trying to kick a stuntman in the face and blew my hamstring. It was two days after I turned 50. I must have reached my expiration date.”

Evil Dead remake still in the cards

I have you say that this is the first time a remake got me excited since John Carpenter's The Thing and Chuck Russell's The Blob. OK I'll cut to the chase, according to Bloody Disgusting they are planning to film Evil Dead the Musical in 3D. I truly don't know what to expect, but at least this look a lot more original that what ever Michael Bay has 'made'.

MNIB Theatrical Play Dates

Well that all I have to say really, just go here

BC talks ED4

Go to Mtv to read an interview with BC where he talks about ED4 and the inclusion of a younger sidekick:

“I think the audience would be insulted if you did, because then you feel this obvious pressure to appeal,” he said. “The beauty of the ‘Evil Dead’ movies is that you’re only appealing to one demographic and that’s people who like horror movies. And you just have to please them. You don’t have to appeal to the studio. You’re already pleasing them by giving them part 4.”

Well I can truly say that this is looking better and better (though it's not hard to be less disappointing then Indy4 or Die Hard4 I guess).

Go here and here where Raimi talks about ED4.

Here's an interview with BC, it's basically about BurnNotice but he says this about Bubba Nosferatu:

"Well, it’s a bit of a tease but I must say that the truth of the matter is I couldn’t come to an agreement with the filmmaker about what type of film we wanted to make so we felt it was best, rather than jeopardize what I consider to be a good friendship, we let it go. So it fell apart and I don’t think it’ll come back together again."

and if you go to Shock till you drop you'll see a new poster for MNIB (though it looks like a bad photoshop really).

ok I guess that's most of what's happening lately (don't forget the post under this one), we really need to find a way to keep this blog alive (if it is actually still alive), though I don't have full control (Deckle has). So make yourself heared, if it's worth it to find a good way to keep the BC info comming.

yours truly,

Evil Flip

ps. better start saving your money, cos the coming of EvilDead4 is obviously going to lead to more EvilDead/ArmyofDarkness DVD double-dip editions :S

Back from the Dead-ish

Ok it's been a while. I for one have been busy with school and working on other websites. but it's seems people still visit this site. I guess it's maybe an idea to do a restart with this blog or maybe go elsewhere, not to mention expand the community, so that everybody can add BC info. so if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears. Anyway I haven't heard anything from Deckle either so maybe he's out, I dunno.

ok now for some things we missed; an update on bruce. well the things I have found over the last few months were that 'Vacation' is still being made and WITH BC according to this interview:

" As of a few weeks ago, all the funds are there to make it on a low budget, no frills level. But the main producer is currently producing something else that doesn’t get out for a month or so, and Bruce Campbell is not actually acting but he has a producer credit on the big budget Hollywood remake of The Evil Dead. I’ve spoken to him and I know he’s up for it, but I know that this is insignificant money-wise compared to the Evil Dead remake, which will steamroller us if we get in the way. It’s basically a question of juggling our dates to survive."

The thing is that, according to a friend of mine whose been to the San Diego ComicCon, the Evil Dead remake has been dropped (Groovy) in favour of [hold on to your butts...] EVIL DEAD 4. Sorry I don't have a link to prove it, but I trust my friend and according to him Raimi said this himself and not as a reaction to some annoying fan.

Some other stuff that came online was the first ten minutes of My name is Bruce

OK that's it for now. I'll have a look for some more tidbits tonight.

Stay Groovy,

Evil Dead In South Korea

Here's the latest article on just how big a hit EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL has been in South Korea:

"Evil Dead" kills in Korea

SEOUL -- "Evil Dead: The Musical" may not have been a killer hit Off Broadway, but it's slaying them in South Korea. The campy Canadian musical based on Sam Raimi's cult slasher films is packing them in at the Chungmu Art Hall Theater, where it opened March 19 and is scheduled to run through June 14.

According to lead producer Jeffrey Latimer, various representatives of the Japanese market are negotiating for the property, while a German production also has been signed for later this year.

Back in Toronto, where the musical gorefest began in 2003, the show reopened for the fifth time on Feb. 14 and has just been held over into summer.

So how does a show that failed commercially in Gotham manage to spin out a life halfway around the world?

There are a couple of explanations. One is the fact that Korea is, quite simply, crazy for musical theater.

"The passion for musicals in Korea is unbelievable," says Adam Gentle, international licensing manager for the Broadway Asia Co. "There were 160 individual musical productions produced last year in Seoul. Our company alone grossed $28 million from this city in 2007."
