Perlman talks Bubba

Giamatti confirms Perlman as Elvis

When Paul Giamatti was rumored to play the King's manager Col. Parker in a sequel to the absolute little gem BUBBA HO-TEP, it felt as just too good to ever have even the smallest chance of being true. Especially since Bruce Campbell kept bumming us out by saying he himself wasn't doing it. But then Giamatti dropped THE bomb: Elvis is alive and well, and looking like...Ron Perlman. The words "F*ck" and "Yeah" came to mind.

Talking to Fangoria Radio this week, Hellboy's alter ego not only confirmed that the film is still a go with himself and big Paul involved, but filming should start in just a few weeks if all goes right.

I’ll be done shooting SONS OF ANARCHY in September, and we’re hoping to get into production on BUBBA in my hiatus between seasons two and three," the tall guy said. "I just spoke to Paul Giamatti  and Don Coscarelli this morning, and we’re just moving the ball down the field, trying to get her done.

Perlman also announced the casting of Angus Scrimm, known to Coscarelli fan as The Tall Man from the PHANTASM movies. He'll be playing a Boris Karloff-esque actor that Elvis meets on the set of a Vampire film in the 70s.

Why the f*ck can't studios back original wacky stuff like this instead of the thousands of sh*tty remakes we keep getting?
