ENGLUND TALKS FvJvASH!
It's always cool to hear that actors we like and respect, like and respect other actors that we also like and respect (and in this case idolize) and aren't afraid to show it. Did you get that? Ok, good, 'cause I don't think I did. Regardless, what I'm not so eloquently trying to get to is that Robert Englund, everybody's favorite dream terrorizer, recently did an interview with entertainment site Zap2It.com and was yakking on about various projects like the proposed new made-for-tv 'V' film, a guest spot on the new Teri Polo series 'I'm with Her' (click the link above to read more about those), but it was when asked about the FREDDY VS JASON VS ASH rumor, that some fanboy fantasy type quotes started flying:
'It's a coffin nail -- but it's a great coffin nail, because I love this guy -- Bruce Campbell as Ash, the monster-killer that he played in the 'Evil Dead' movies, coming after Freddy and Jason, getting both of us, and leaving the world safe from sequels.'
'It would have to be a phenomenal script. It would have to be Bruce and Sam Raimi locked in a Palm Springs hotel for six weeks. It would be great for him and great for us. We could put the franchises to bed with a big, super, pop-culture, camp epic.'
Are you hearing this?!?!? Mr. franchise himself, who still admittedly loves playing the Freddy character, is willing to be killed off by the most ass-kickingest dude this side of the S-Mart! Yeah motherf*cker! That's what I'm talking about! I hope New Line hears this kind of shit because Robert Englund (a cool dude himself) showing that type of respect and enthusiasm for the coolness that is the Sam Raimi/Bruce Campbell tagteam, is reason enough to get this movie made! And made ASAP!
