CAMPBELL'S SCREAMING BRAIN
Genre mainstay Bruce Campbell told SCI FI Wire that production will begin this summer on The Man With the Screaming Brain, an upcoming original SCI FI Channel film that he's writing, producing, directing and starring in. It's part of a two-picture deal with SCI FI and Creative Light Entertainment, Campbell said.
The Man With the Screaming Brain centers on an uptown banker (Campbell) who suffers an injury to part of his brain, which is replaced with that of a Latino street hustler. 'So what you've got is one guy with two brains, and they team up to form an unholy alliance and find the woman who killed them both and who is loose in the city,' Campbell said in an interview. 'So you've got this uptight, white Yuppie guy who's carjacking cars, and there's gunplay and pool playing and tequila involved. And that's all set amidst a mad scientist's quest.
Campbell said it's taken a while to get the project off the ground. 'This time it came around through Creative Light, which is this group of young whiz-bangs in Beverly Hills who like putting modest-budgeted things together,' he said. He added, 'I'm going to go to Orlando [Fla.] this summer to shoot it.
