The much-anticipated sequel to the cult “horror”/comedy My Name Is Bruce is in the works, and this time Bruce Campbell himself will be taking on one of the heavyweight champions of the horror genre: Frankenstein’s monster! The sequel, titled Bruce vs. Frankenstein, is still in the developmental phase, but Campbell took some time to talk about all things Bruce with Hero Complex recently and in doing so let some of the project details slip. I’ll let the man speak for himself on this one:
I want to get so many horror movie stars that people can’t possibly not see the movie. I want to give them other stuff to do. I want to have Kane Hodder be very particular about what he eats. I want Robert Englund to be a tough guy, like he knows tae kwon do or something. I want to find out the hidden sides of all these people. Some will play themselves, some will play alternate characters as well. I may approach Kane Hodder to play Frankenstein. He could be Kane Hodder himself fighting himself as Frankenstein. It could be crazy. It’s a silly concocted story that we hope to do maybe in a year or so. […] There’s a script, it just kind of blows right now, so no one’s really seeing it. We gotta work on it. Definitely shoot in Oregon all on a stage. It’s like the “300″ of horror comedies. We want to make it a whole world. Someone’s gotta take Frank down for good.
Sold! With a cast like that, I’ll be the first in line to see this.
