Bruce Campbell is the freakin' man. He's a great, funny guy who is also crazy talented. Let's face it, big stars like George Clooney only wish they could be as badass as Bruce Campbell. If the actor has his way, there's a chance that one day he will make an Expendables style horror movies.
I had never seen this interview before, but During an interview with The Hero Complex 4 years ago Campbell was asked about a couple of films he'd like to make, such as a sequel to My Name Is Bruce called Bruce vs. Frankenstein and The Expendables of horror movies. In his reply he explained us what he'd like to see happen with these:

"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."
Good hell in a hand basket! I hope this movie happens because it would be amazing! Just have someone work on that script so Campbell can bring this sucker to life. I want to see it now! While its been 4 years and nothing new has been reported on it. I hope that by resurfacing the idea, maybe something will happen.
