My Name Is Bruce Again

Small update on Bruce Vs. Frankenstein

MTV has picked up a couple of hints from Bruce Campbell about Bruce Vs. Frankenstein, the planned sequel to his 2007 My Name is Bruce.

Shooting was due to start in the autumn, but commitments to his role in TV's Burn Notice - specifically to a TV movie spin-off that he's shooting during the hiatus - has meant having to "push" BvF to the next Burn Notice break.

It's still definitely on though, with Bruce clearly keeping his eye on the zeigeist. "I want every horror icon in the movie," he says. Are we talking about the horror Expendables? Not so much that, says Bruce, as "the horror It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World". Maybe not quite so zeitgeisty after all then, although the idea of Bruce, Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Gunnar Hansen, Bill Moseley, Michael Berryman, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tony Todd, Angus Scrimm, Danielle Harris and Warwick Davies chasing after treasure buried under a big W, isn't unappealing. Still probably not as good as Bubba Nosferatu would be though.

The Blu-Ray of The Evil Dead, which is the reason for the MTV interview, is out on October 11.
