The Aftermath of the Sam Raimi 'The Hobbit' Rumor Begins, Cheap Shots Taken At Bruce
So the rumor has just gone web wide and prominent news sites are speculating on the potential film news that broke yesterday (look at yesterdays entry to see what the big fuss is about). One of the more interesting articles that was put out there that involved Bruce was from Cinema Blend which attributed negative comments to the 'Geek God' when talking about a potential Raimi helmed The Hobbit. Here is an excerpt:
"You might think Raimi ought to be getting tired of Spidey by now, but word has it that the third film sets up a story which he might be keen to continue for a fourth movie. Why bother with The Hobbit? He has one high profile franchise already. Besdies, if Raimi does take it we’ll have to suffer through Bruce Campbell as… rumors that invariably follow Ted’s brother everywhere he goes. Bruce Campbell as Gandalf anyone?"
The words 'suffer' and 'Bruce Campbell' do not belong in the same sentence and it was a cheap shot at Bruce (and lets not forget Ted). The last bit of the article goes onto sarcastically suggests that Bruce play Gandalf. You can read the full article here.
