Bruce Campbell Parts Ways With Coscarelli, Turns Down 'Bubba Nosferatu'.
Fangoria said it best, "Bruce Campbell dropped a bombshell" on its listeners of Fangoria radio today by turning down Bubba Nosferatu, the sequel to the cult classic Bubba Ho-Tep. Here is an excerpt from Bruce regarding the project:
"Bubba Nosferatu is dead to me. It sleeps with the fishes. Don Coscarelli is a very passionate filmmaker. We got to a few points [developing the screenplay] that we couldn’t reconcile. I want to keep our friendship, so we parted ways. So I’m not part of that project."
As far as Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash is concerned, Bruce had this to say:
"It blows! You really think Ash would be allowed to kill Freddy and Jason off? We [including EVIL DEAD creator Sam Raimi] didn’t have any control on the project, New Line did, so there was no reason to do it"
Bruce becomes pessimistic when he talks about doing another Evil Dead film:
"Raimi still talks about it, but he’s in no rush to do it with everything else he has going on. Sam jokes, ‘Maybe we can do another EVIL DEAD when we’re 70"
Bruce also goes onto talk about the failures of Alien Apocalypse and Man with a Screaming Brain, Burn Notice picked up for a second season, and that his publisher wants him to write a third book. The full interview can be found here.
