The Future Of Bruce Campbell

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Bruce Campbell has been travelling around promoting his newest flick The Man With The Screaming Brain. Sadly, I missed his appearance here in Boston, (curse you Coolidge Corner!) but he's gonna be showing up at a few different panels and whatnot at ComicCon this weekend. Anything that Bruce Campbell is involved in is immediately of interest to me and I know I'm not alone on this one.

The Chin was recently in Denver promoting his flick and he did a little Q&A in which he discussed his future projects. "Don't hold your breath" for Bubba Nosferatu, and his involvement in future incarnations, be they remakes or sequels, of Evil Dead is still in the air, but he's not showing up without Sam Raimi, so, again, don't hold your breath.

HOWEVER, his next project sounds pretty awesome. Campbell plays himself, staying in a small rural town which comes under the attack of some sort of monster. The town decides that their best defense is to get the guy from Evil Dead to bust out his boomstick and lay the smackdown, but of course The Chin isn't actually a deadly force with a chainsaw, no doubt leading to much carnage and hilarity.

Seems to be a few projects in the works in which well known actors are playing themselves. Ben Stiller has one in which he fights with his mirror image "movie persona" and Brad Pitt has one where he plays both himself and a young actor named Chad Schmidt who happens to look just like Pitt. My feeling is that these things tend to go to the extremes, either being really smart and funny, or turning into that ridiculous Julia Roberts nonsense in Ocean's Twelve. Poor Bruce Willis. You're so much better than that.
