Writer Mark Verheidens reveals some of the inspiration behind the new Bruce Campbell film:

I’ve also been a fan of Bruce Campbell’s since EVIL DEAD 2, which I (honestly) consider one of the great movies of the 1980’s. I’ve been lucky enough to actually work with Bruce on a project (an episode of the late, mostly unlamented TIMECOP series I did for ABC back in ’97), and ever since I’ve been scheming to find a way to do a movie with him. Enter my friend Mike Richardson, who also knew Bruce, and who also happens to own Dark Horse Entertainment. When he told me he’d lined up financing for some lower-budget features, I pitched him my BRUCE idea. What if Mr. C were kidnapped by some small town folks who mistook him from the hero from the EVIL DEAD movie? And when he actually does battle with some demonic force, he’s hopelessly incompetent? And why is this blog suddenly like a Donald Rumsfeld monologue?


What indeed? The mind runs rampant.

    This is all well and good, but if Mike Richard ever wants to be a real pal, he’ll greenlight THE AMERICAN movie. I’m sure he has several drafts of Marks script…. Their other buddy, Sam Raimi would do a hell of a job, wouldn’t he?

  2. What if Mr. C were kidnapped by some small town folks who mistook him from the hero from the EVIL DEAD movie?

    Galaxy Quest did the same thing for STAR TREK, right?

    Anybody else want to cite an earlier example of the same idea?

    //Oo/\

    I have to admit, this would be a great time for a The American movie. We’ve been thrust yet again into an age of cynicism about government and faux patriotism, there could be some real beauty.

    Mike RichardSON, of course, is who I meant. Sorry, little fella!
