Campbell Open to Evil Dead 4 and Bubba Nosferatu

by | May 5, 2007 | Comments

Even though he’s in charge of the massive "Spider-Man" franchise and in the running for films like "The Hobbit," Sam Raimi always says he wants to make another "Evil Dead" film with Bruce Campbell. Campbell isn’t quite as touched by that as one might think, and may suggest that it’s not in the director’s best interest to do so at the moment.

"Sam probably didn’t mention the second half of that, which is he doesn’t need to right now," said Campbell. "We can always make an ‘Evil Dead’ movie when we’re in the old actors and directors home. But right now, he’s not quite there."

Campbell’s idea suggests a brilliant idea: Old Ash versus the deadites! "Oh yeah, absolutely. He’s out of it. I’d make him an old ass. I’d make him like a Bubba Ho-tep."

Speaking of which, "Bubba Ho-tep" was such a fan favorite that director Don Coscarelli wants to bring back Campbell for "Bubba Nosferatu." Coscarelli is waiting but Campbell is holding out. "When we have a script," he said. "Everyone’s working diligently on the script. So when that’s done, we’ll see what we got."
