Breaking News: Head Of Dark Horse, Mike Richadson, Confirms That 'My Name Is Bruce' Will Get A Theatrical Release
Huge news everyone, the head of Dark Horse, Mike Richardson, did an interview with IESB a few days back which we followed up on, and now the second part of that interview has been released with Richardson confirming that My Name Is Bruce will get a theatrical release. When asked about what independant movies Dark Horse was working on, Richardson's reply was as follows:
"We just got finished shooting My Name is Bruce starring Bruce Campbell and directed by Bruce and Bruce and I produced it together so you can say he had three different parts on it. We shot it down in Southern Oregon on a 20 day shoot roughly and it turned out amazing, we just screened the assembly yesterday and like I said earlier I think people were rolling on the floor, it’s really funny and Bruce basically plays himself and he’s kidnapped off a B horror movie, “Cave Alien 2” and hauled off to a small town in the middle of nowhere where they ask him to save them from the creature in the cemetery. He goes along with the gag, he thinks it’s a gag, what happens afterward is very funny but this is full of “in-jokes” and full of cast members from previous Bruce movies, this is every Bruce Campbell lover’s, which I happen to be in that particular school, it’s every Bruce Campbell lover’s dream movie. It’s a riot, it’s really funny, everyone who loves Bruce Campbell is going to love this movie."
The question that fans had on their minds, the whole time that My Name Is Bruce was in production, was whether it will get a theatrical release or straight to DVD release? When asked about the chances of My Name Is Bruce hitting the big screen, Richardson says:
"Oh, we are definitely going with a theatrical release, our partner, Image Entertainment, not to be confused with the comic company, the DVD company, they are funding our independent line, they just recently saw the assembly and they loved it. There’s no doubt we are prepared, we are just going into post, and while in post we made the decision to go theatrical."
There you have it, for all you pessimistic people out their who thought this movie would end up on the Sci-Fi channel, we are going BIG TIME. If the studios are impressed by just the rough assembly of the film, imagine what the finished product is going to be, I can't wait. Spread the word, My Name Is Bruce is coming to a theatre near you.
