'My Name Is Bruce' Will Not Be Released In February 2007, Possible Sequel?
Thanks to Dimitris for the following info, its much appreciated by the Army of Bruce fans. The writer of My Name Is Bruce, Mark Verheiden, updated his blog today and gave us an update on the film. Verheiden responded to the rumors that My Name Is Bruce will be releasing in early 2007. Here is the full post:
"Only an update in the sense of telling folks that the Feb. 2007 date I'm seeing bandied about as a "release date" is wildly inaccurate. It's full speed ahead in terms of post production, but everyone involved wants to do this thing right, so I wouldn't expect to be seeing Mr. Campbell's Opus for awhile yet. DO NOT TAKE THIS to imply that there are problems with the film or that anyone's having second thoughts. Trust me, this is all good! Response to the movie so far has been uniformly positive, so positive that all involved agree it's worth taking the extra time to make sure every ounce of Bruce goodness reaches the silver screen. And if MNIB takes off, expect "My Name Is Bruce - The Quickening" soon after! (That's a joke, folks, but hey, you never know!)"
Obviously the last part, My Name Is Bruce 2: The Quickening, is a joke but Bubba Nosferatu: The Curse of the She Vampires was put in at the end of Bubba Ho-Tep as a gag and now that gag is going to get made into a movie. I know everyone wants to see this movie bad, but it is a good thing that this movie is not coming out in February. Like Verheiden said, Bruce and the rest of the post production team are not rushing the film. This allows Dark Horse more time to hype up the movie and get the grassroots marketing going on a wider scale. You can read the full post here.
Note: One other post for today. I know its been a slow Christmas break as far as Bruce news goes, but if today's My Name Is Bruce update is any indication, there seems like more Bruce news is to come. Thanks for the support and keep coming back everyone.
