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.
