Bruce Campbell: They Call Me Bruce

Hail to the king, baby
Posted on 12.03.05 by Tyler Durden @ 2:17 pm
In what might just be the most exciting news to come out of Hollywood all year, B-list favorite Bruce Campbell has announced he will star and direct the upcoming motion picture, “They Call me Bruce.” As reported on Bruce’s official site:

The film is “the tale of a small town set upon by demons after a group of teen-agers unwittingly unleash an ancient curse. Campbell, playing himself, is kidnapped off the set of a B horror movie and, despite his protestations that he’s just an actor, is forced to play the role of his heroic movie character in order to save the town.”


Anyone familiar with Bruce’s past work on the “Evil Dead” series has gotta love this news, but it’s doubtful that the film will see a wide release. Movie studio’s have long passed up on making Campbell a bonafide A-lister, and as the actor gets older, the chances that he’ll get any closer to making big slowly narrows. This announcement is still great news for fans of the B actor’s work, coming on the heels of last week’s rumor that a sequel to “Bubba Ho-Tep” was also in the works.
If this eventually does happen I sure hope it's better than The Man With The Screaming Brain.

As a Bruce fan, it sounds pretty cool to me. Though I doubt it will get a release here...

Come SciFi or midnight movies or direct to video, you can count me in. This sounds great.

My former manager, Dave Randolph, wrote that film. I wonder can he get a settlement...

I think I remember seeing it as "upcoming" years back, but never got around to picking it up. The picture I used is from amazon's listing.

Now, if they'd only get around to releasing Dancing Outlaw.

Except this time it might not suck.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only fan of They Call Me Bruce. I didn't know it was already available on DVD.

Blasphemy! New Nightmare was the best Nightmare on Elm St. It was also the last great film Wes Craven made.

As for this, it sounds like fun, but his directing chops really need to have improved from Man With The Screaming Brain.

It was his greatest film until Freddy finally made his appearance. He was a total lameass which really irked me given how well they set him up during the earlier portions of the film. It was really anticlimactic.

That's the one where he eats the glass candy to scare off some punks, right? Or did that happen in the first one?

Actually, they've already wrapped filming and have started post production.

I'm a huge fan of Red Eye, for what it's worth.

I can't wait to check out this flick from Bruce.

I am having flashbacks of the Rick Springfield song "Bruce". Basically he was talking about how people confused him with Bruce Springsteen, here is the chorus:

She called me Bruce, Bruce
I can hear her calling Bruce, Bruce
I can hear her calling Bruce, Bruce
I can hear her
My name is Rick I'm gonna stick it to ya babe
