“It’s a follow-up to Bubba Ho Tep. Don Coscarelli made that wonderful cult film and Bruce Campbell played Elvis. This is a follow-up to that. Bruce, for one reason or another decided that he didn’t want to go on with the character and they asked if I would and I definitely would. It is on track and with any help from the gods and the elements we’ll be shooting that thing next fall.”
I know I shouldn’t get too presumptuous, but it really seems like the flick is seriously on its way. Would HELLBOY lie to me? Would the gods and the elements dare to spite HELLBOY? I hope not! The current plan, I’ve heard, is to shoot NOSFERATU very soon for a release in 2011. I’m all for this and wonder if Elvis will have a well-known aged sidekick (like JFK in the original).
