What ever happened to the damned Oldsmobile?
Well that damned Oldsmobile is still in Ash vs. Evil Dead. The actual, actual, actual, real Oldsmobile – we put it on a boat and we shipped it to New Zealand, where we filmed. That is Sam’s personal car that I rode in when I was in high school. And I know he’s got them all numbered. He has four of them, but there’s only one that’s the original.
Any chance of a Bubba Hotep 2? That movie was awesome!
The script for Bubba Ho-tep was a very unique script and the reason there has not been a sequel is because we have not been able to come up with a script that is as good as the first one. And I know now after having some experience that your script is like your blueprint for your building and if your blueprint is pointed in a funny direction, that’s the way your building is gonna go.
So if you have a script that is subpar, it’s gonna be a subpar movie and none of us wanted to do that with Bubba because a lot of people really dig it. So, at the end of the day, too, it’s also okay to not make a sequel.
We’ve all gone a little sequel-crazy, a little remake-crazy, myself included. It’s okay for original ideas to get made and made once. That’s what they used to do. It’s gotten a little chronic now.
I enjoyed the humor in your books. Have plans for another, sir?
I do have plans to a sequel for If Chins Could Kill because it’s been 15 years now since the first book came out, so there’s a lot more ridiculous stories to go with it.
Both books, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor and my second novel, Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way, are out as e-books now. So, if you’re tired of looking at old, black and white photographs, get your e-0book. There’s lovely new color images for you to see.
Well, folks that’s it ! Some great questions asked by the fine folk of Reddit, and some great answers from Bruce himself.
