While it’s not exactly comics-related (though Dark Horse Entertainment will serve as distributor), it’s still big news for just about every comics fan I know: Yes, Bruce Campbell’s next film, My Name Is Bruce, finally has a release date!
ShockTillYouDrop.com, who spoke with Dark Horse president Mike Richardson during the Saturn Awards last week, has reported the film is due out in October. Directed by Campbell himself, and featuring a script by Mark Verheiden, the film’s plot involves the real-life Bruce Campbell being mistaken for the character he played in his Evil Dead films and forced to fight a demon in order to save a town.
The film was first screened almost a year ago, but a string of delays caused many to doubt whether it would ever be seen in theaters.
But that’s not all, according to the movie website:
Richardson said that a sequel, titled My Name is Still Bruce, is in the works as well. Dark Horse Entertainment and Image Entertainment will distribute both films.
(Sorry, I couldn’t help it.)
