Comic-Book-Resources Says That Bruce Campbell Is Too Old To Play 'The Shadow'

Comic Book Resources was speculating over the upcoming Shadow movie that will be produced by Sam Raimi and they gave us their insight regarding the film. Here is an excerpt from the article which mentions Bruce:

"Yeah, so the Alec Baldwin movie didn’t go over so well. Sam Raimi, however, has finally gotten the rights to produce a new Shadow movie! He tried to get them years back and couldn’t, which is why we got Darkman. Unfortunately, Bruce Campbell’s a little too old to play the Shadow (probably), so who do you think can fill the scarf? I think Adrien Brody’s got the nose for it, myself…"

So they put "probably" in brackets. That might be Comic Book Resources saving grace, or else I think Bruce fans would be even more pissed. You can read the full article here.

This is just one flick I don't see getting off the ground. So I'm not too disappointed.

Okay, as the writer of the article, I should probably tell you that I am the hugest Bruce Campbell fan on the face of the planet (well, except for maybe the webmasters here) and I meant no slight against the Chin!

If Bruce played the Shadow, I'd love it. I just don't see a studio going along with it, is all.
