Update On 'The Totally Geeky Guide To Bruce Campbell'

Upon request, I went out and inquired regarding the upcoming book, The Totally Geeky Guide To Bruce Campbell. The book is going to be written by MaryAnn Johanson, who runs FlickFilosopher, and is in the development stages as of right now. Johanson gives us an update on what the book is all about:

"I'm delighted that people are excited about the book. There's not much to tell, however -- the book is only in the very early planning stages. But the idea is that I will explore and interpret Bruce's career -- and why we his work seems to speak in a particular way to those of a geekish persuasion -- from the perspective of the fan. I would love to talk to Bruce about his work and get his take on his own work, and I will try to do that, but the important thing here is that this will emphatically not be about an insider's perspective: it won't be about funny stories from the set, making-of trivia, or anything like that. It'll be about figuring out why we all love Bruce so much. The book will feature commentary on Bruce's work from an overall perspective, and also on a project-by-project basis. If anyone wants an idea of what the book will be like, I suggest they take a look at my *Princess Bride* book (you posted an image of the cover at your blog). And of course, buying that book will only encourage me to get to work on the Bruce book!"

Fans will flock to anything thats about Bruce. I'll keep you updated if anything happens regarding the project.

Note: One other story for today.

I hope this book comes to light. I think myself and Green included are eager for another book on Bruce. Bruce is king but I wonder if the author needs consent from Bruce to publish the book

You never fail to get me with the quotes E.F. It's the second time you've had me wondering why I didn't think of that.
There will be more updates. Maybe there just isn't any news right now...

Between the announcement of the MNIB premiere, and reports on the talks he's been doing at colleges in the last few days, there's more than enough opportunities for stories. Deckle, we all understand you have a life outside this blog, but if you can't update it just once in a month, give the password to someone who will.

MNIB premiere? When!?!!

I agree... it might be time to hand the keys to the kingdom to someone else.

I'm a silent lazy nerd that is desprately seeking new Bruce info!

sure, but we all know what happend last time when somebody had to use a password and mis-pronounced it. what was it again? Klaatu barada Necktie... Nectar... Nickel... Nazie.. Noodle? It's an "N" word, it's definitely an "N" word!

but on a serious note, it doesn't need to be ONE person to keep it active. why putt all the workload on one when you can spread it out.

One month without updates...

Maybe he died? We need to get word to Bruce Campbell to Ressurect his Deadite ass!

 
At 10:43 AM, Blogger Trey said...

I agree. He needs to let someone help him with this. We understand if you have a lot going on in your personal life at the moment, but please pass the password along to someone else.

Also, I suggest we give him another month before someone steps up and creates a new blog. BruceCampbell.com rarely updates, so this place was the one stop place on the web for Bruce news. I miss it. =(

While this is not technically Bruce news, Brisco County Jr. and Jack of All Trades made it into the list of the "13 TV Shows that never should have been cancelled" (which also included one of my fav's, The Lone Gunmen)

I think it's funny that there's a movie coming to theaters this weekend with Bruce in it, and still no updates.

At 4:34 AM, Blogger Flip said...

hey, just read some great news about 'My Name is Bruce'
http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/8625

this probably means the studio likes the movie and so are putting more money into it (or it sucks and they are trying to save it, but I refuse to believe that ;).

 
At 10:14 AM, Blogger Talixmer said...

Nice find Flip. Thanks for giving us something!

Just liek to add this from bloody disgusting.The yhad a n interview with don cascorelli,and a brief metnion of bubba nosferatu

BD: What is the latest on the status of the eagerly awaited “Bubba Nosferatu”? I believe I read that it will focus on Elvis (Bruce Campbell) and his relationship with Colonel Tom Parker (Paul Giamatti). Any further little nuggets of info you could divulge?

DC: I fully intend to make this long-rumored sequel soon. The script is finished and it’s chock full of Elvis kicking undead ass!

BD: What do you have planned for fans beyond “Bubba Nosferatu”?

DC: Hopefully a few more surprises.

Hey guys,

looks likes Bruce may be in a new film by Richard Stanley's next film "Vacation" Check it out.

At 11:18 AM, Blogger Flip said...

I nearly crapped myself when I heared that news! the great Richard Stanley is coming back and with Bruce Campbell no-less. Hardware is a movie that really creeped me out as a kid, but after the also classic Dust Devil (and being fired from that crap Val Kilmer flick) Stanley went quiet on the feature front (making only documentories). So it's bloody groovy he's back and with the king of chins by his side :D

Anyone care to throw up a BC blog someplace and setup a few people as contributors? That would address our problem I think...

Would sure beat this... perhaps Deckle would at least post a redirect link or something to forward to the other site... dunno.

Anyone wants to chat about it drop me a mail at dakotayoda@gmail.com and we can see what we could work out.

Hey jfy, I would! I'm dropping you a line.

 
At 8:41 AM, Blogger Flip said...

I'm in. btw there really is a chance this blog guy died. I mean things like that do happen. ..or he had a vacation, rented a cabin and had some problems.

 
At 4:18 PM, Blogger LM71 said...

Spiderman 3 review is up at AICN

(Talks about Bruce's cameo!)

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/32348

LOL flip! but then, he should've known better than going up to a cabin.

I don't think Deckle died. If you check his profile on IMDb he has been active today (and made a post about two days ago)

HUGE thanks to LM71 for putting in the hours to get the site up and going!!

Not Bruce news I know but for those who might be interested, Evil Dead the Musical starts in Toronto on May 1st, and the NY cast album comes out on April 24th. Even if you didn't see the musical, which was awesome, you should check out the album, it's hilarious.
