Bruce Campbell confirms once again that he will never star in a Bubba Ho-Tep movie
Never say never... unless you are Bruce Campbell...
After a long, long period of no news on the Bubba Nosferatu front the Bubba Ho-Tep 2 questions popped up once again this week. Bruce Campbell, star of the original movie, is doing press interviews to promote his new book. The book features a chapter about Bubba Ho-Tep and when asked about the possiblity of him starring in a sequel he shuts it down pretty quickly. In the interview for the Entertainment Weekly show he said: "I killed it, I killed it for me. I told the creators that I didn’t want to dance around it anymore. I feel that the first one was a nice little gem and you don’t have to make a sequel for everything. Don Coscarelli, god bless him, go make it. You know, get somebody else. They had Ron Perlman at one point. Knock yourself out. I don’t want to stop you from making this, but I don’t want to [do it]. So, that one I’m just going to let go." So, I guess that pretty much does it! It certainly doesn't sound like he ever wants to be involved and we should probably just give up on that. It is still a shame though. The fact that everywhere he goes Bruce gets asked about the possibility of a sequel shows what a love there is for the original movie. I for one pledge to keep my hopes up for Don Coscarelli to one day get a chance to complete his passion project. I'll still give it a go even without Bruce.
