In a recent interview, ‘Evil Dead’ star Bruce Campbell says he is looking to make ‘The Expendables’ of horror films. Entitled ‘Bruce vs. Frankenstein’, Campbell sees it being in the same vein as Sly Stallone’s ultimate guy movie, but for horror fans.
“Yeah, ‘The Expendables’, or more like the ‘It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World’ of horror,” Campbell said. “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.”
The iconic actor continued, “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.”
But how far along are his plans? “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.”
