More than five years ago, Bruce Campbell first floated the idea of making an Expendables of Horror that brought in all of his most famous genre friends to fight a single threat in one movie. He was planning it as a sequel to his 2008 horror comedy My Name Is Bruce, which found the cult icon essentially playing himself. The new movie was to be called Bruce Vs. Frankenstein, but we haven't heard much about it since then. Last year, he started talking about it again, though at the time, he said the script sucked. We asked Campbell if Bruce Vs. Frankenstein was still happening, and he revealed that he is still in the process of writing the script. He says:
"Yeah! Never say never. I have a script that I'm working on that would pretty much be that. It's not ready to share at this point. It's in the pipeline I guess you could say. I've always wanted to do the Expendables of Horror type movie. Because I always run into all my horror buddies at conventions. It would be fun to do a movie that pretty much has all of them in it."
Campbell first mentioned the idea of an Expendables of Horror way back in 2010, but the actor's Burn Notice TV schedule kept the project from happening. It may be awhile longer before we actually see it come to fruition, as the actor now has Ash Vs. Evil Dead happening at Starz, which will get 10 half-hour episodes.
It was also recently announced that Sylvester Stallone is producing an Expendables TV series that would bring 80s and 90s action icons from the small screen together for a dangerous mission. Having starred for many years on Burn Notice, not to mention many other series such as The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. and Jack of All Trades, we wondered if the actual Expendables would be something he'd be interested in joining?
"If I wasn't doing Ash vs Evil Dead for Starz this year, I could consider it. You know, the Expendables seems like it's fun. I haven't seen the movies, but...conceptually I like that idea. There's a lot of ways you could go with it. That's a great idea for a TV show."
With Ash Vs. Evil Dead on the way, are you still dying to see The Expendables of Horror actually become a reality? Or would you rather see Bruce Campbell take on the actual Expendables TV series? You can watch out full video interview here:
