Bruce Campbell Takes A 'Vacation'

If you haven't heard yet, now you have, Bruce Campbell has been tapped to star in the upcoming Richard Stanley film Vacation. In a recent interview with Fangoria, Stanley said that Bruce is "committed" to the low budget independent project. Stanley gives Fangoria an insight into the starring role that Bruce will be playing in the film:

"Bruce is Bryce, a failing East Coast banker with a coke habit who books himself and his significantly younger lap-dancer ‘girlfriend,’ Carly, into a seedy Middle Eastern tourist resort. He’s hoping for a spot of late-season sun and surf, a last, desperate stab at romance and the happiness that has always eluded him. They are so caught up in their own petty problems that neither of them realize at first that the end is truly nigh—quite literally the end of the world"

Get excited everyone. Bruce starring in a movie where he has to save the world, its gonna be good no matter the budget.

Note: Spider-Man 3 is out in theatres everyone, so go see it because Bruce is damn hilarious and shares the camera for a pretty big chunk of time.

Bruce's character saving the world? You've clearly never seen a Richard Stanley film! From what I can tell in Stanley's MySpace blog, the script is explicitly an allegory against America's foreign policy in the Middle East, with his character pointedly being the least sympathetic character. Not dissimilar to Bruce's character in Man With The Screaming Brain, really.

No. Say isn't so Bruce. I cant believe he'd star in a heavy handed, thinly veiled polital propaganda flick. I dont like it. No sir.

Hey came across an article about Sam Raimi interview on Spider-man 3 and about future projects, it had a part about the Evil Dead franchise being alive and kicking or the 3rd page of the article.

“I would definitely like to make another Evil Dead film with Bruce [Campbell] one day. I don’t know when, but I would definitely like to do it. I love working with Bruce.”

Here is the link incase someone wants to post up this article, thanks!
