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.

Note: Everytime I leave this blog, it seems to never die. Now I don't know how long I will go on for before I go on more major hiatus but I need people to e-mail me if they really want to be contributers to the blog and I will sent them an invite. Email address is on the top right hand side. Thanks to 'Evil Flip' and others for contributing and I hope they still contribute daily. I want to keep this the best place to go for Bruce news.

Man... reading that bit on Fango - Bruce really sounds bitter for some reason. I have not heard the audio and maybe its just the way things are presented in the article but please don't tell me BC has gone crotchety on us - he ain't that old yet!!

And they should not bother trying to recast for BH2 - it would be a crime.

What in the world is Don Coscarelli's big fat problem?!!! Why would someone blow an opportunity for another Bubba Hotep w/BC AND Paul Giamatti in the cast based creative differences? Maybe he thinks Giamatti can pull in enough bucks alone. Whatever, I'm pissed.
And my whole world is crumbling when there is no hope of another ED movie starring Bruce. Things appear to going into the toilet. With the exception of My Name is Bruce things arent looking too good right now.

Eh, thats okay to me. Bubba Ho-Tep wrapped up really well, I couldn't see another movie after this one because BC's character died at the end.

But I will not be seeing Bubba Nosferatu without him in it.

hey no thanx Deckle. anyhow I don't know if this will work without the man, but I am a fan of Coscarelli too (Phantasm 1-4 rock and so does that Masters of horror episode) and do think that he can pull it off without BC. as long as there's a cameo for Reggie ;)
