THE RETURN OF THE CHIN
Bruce Campbell has proved time and time again he's a magnificent, underrated actor. His performance as Elvis Presley in Don Coscarelli's Bubba Ho-Tep, based on Joe R. Lansdale's story, won rave reviews and as critic Jack Garner said: 'Campbell's version of an elderly Elvis actually deserves Oscar consideration.' And we couldn't agree more.
Now, Bruce Campbell Online has some interesting tidbits regarding some of his upcoming projects in the words of the man himself:
A Community Speaks: 'This is a feature-length documentary that looks at modern-day, land stewardship issues from all sides. My wife and I are producing and directing together. It's still in the editing process, but we hope to finish it in '03 some time.'
Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way: 'I'll soon deliver the manuscript for the new fiction book, which is basically a humorous look at relationship books. A book tour is pending for Spring/Summer '04 or fall '04.'
Spider-Man II: 'I play the 'Snooty Usher,' another pivotal role where I deny Tobey Maguire access to see Kirsten Dunst in her first big play. Sorry, no Lizard for me...I'm not a reptile guy. On the other hand, where the Green Goblin failed, Snooty Usher prevails! That's right, my character defeats Spider-Man. The web forums are hereby open for speculation.'
The Woods: 'I play Joe Fasulo, a semi-nerd father of the lead girl. Think the original The Haunting, set in 1965. It's directed by a new filmmaker named Lucky McKee - he did a cool little indie called 'May' that made some noise a year ago. This is his first studio movie.'
