Imagine Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger and Jason and that scary dude from Scream and every other horror character from the past 30 years, all on screen together. Sweet, right? Scary, right? Well, if Bruce Campbell gets his way, you won’t have to imagine.
Campbell — current star of USA’s Burn Notice and cult-hero from Evil Dead and Army of Darkness — told the LA Times that the recent action flick The Expendables — which had nearly every action star from the past 20 years in it — gave him the idea to do a similar film, except in the horror genre. We had that very idea when Stallone’s action melee’ was first release and you can read our ideas for a horror-version of The Expendables here. But for a scoop straight from the horses mouth, read on:
“Yeah, The Expendables, or more like the It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World of horror. I want to get so many horror movie stars that people can’t possibly not see the movie. I want to give them other stuff to do. I want to have Kane Hodder be very particular about what he eats. I want Robert Englund to be a tough guy, like he knows tae kwon do or something. I want to find out the hidden sides of all these people. Some will play themselves, some will play alternate characters as well. I may approach Kane Hodder to play Frankenstein. He could be Kane Hodder himself fighting himself as Frankenstein. It could be crazy. It’s a silly concocted story that we hope to do maybe in a year or so. My breaks between Burn Notice have been getting tighter because they’ve been adding episodes. They’re trying to trap me like a rat in the TV world, and I might just let them. There’s a script, it just kind of blows right now, so no one’s really seeing it. We gotta work on it. Definitely shoot in Oregon all on a stage. It’s like the 300 of horror comedies. We want to make it a whole world. Someone’s gotta take Frank down for good.”
Although Campbell was clearly highly-caffeinated during this explanation, the idea sounds awesome.
