Movie Icon Bruce Campbell Close To Finishing Horror Version Of Expendables Script
Bruce Campbell is one of the most iconic horror icons in the business. In a genre that can cause some serious fear, Bruce Campbell stands out amongst the crowd as he makes fun of himself and the industry in general, but in a most serious way.
However, Bruce Campbell has been dreaming up, and working on, a project for a few years that he is completely serious about. After seeing the iconic homage to 80s and 90s an action movie, The Expendables, Bruce Campbell has had the idea of a horror version lingering in his chaotic thoughts.
The problem is that his original script was horrible! However, just as he didn’t back down from the nefarious Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, Bruce has not let a bad script hold him back. It seems as though Bruce is getting closer to the final product and states that the script no longer “blows.”
“Yeah, ‘The Expendables,’ or more like the ‘It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World’ of horror. 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. My breaks between ‘Burn Notice’ have been getting tighter because they’ve been adding episodes. They’re trying to trap me like a rat in the TV world, and I might just let them. 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.”
Some popular horror actors who are desired to be present are Englund, Hodder, Doug Bradley, Lehman, to name a few of the baddies. However, there are many protagonists, Campbell included, that would also be necessary.
Screen Rant names a few more of their favorite antagonists:
“Imagine Bruce Campbell, hilarious as ever, teaming up with the likes of Jeffrey Combs (‘Re-Animator’), Jamie Lee Curtis (‘Halloween’), Doug Bradley (‘Hellraiser’), Christopher Lee (‘Dracula’), Tim Curry (‘It’), Sarah Michelle Gellar (‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’), Robert Englund (‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’), Kane Hodder (‘Friday the 13th Part VII, VIII, IX, and X’), Asia Argento (‘Land of the Dead’), Tom Savini (‘From Dusk Till Dawn’), Kathy Bates (‘Misery’), Angus Scrimm (‘Phantasm’), Choi Min-sik (‘Oldboy’), Neve Campbell (‘Scream’), Samuel L. Jackson (because he’s awesome) — and that’s just to start”
