Ain’t It Cool News is breaking the story that Bruce Campbell is reprising his role as Bruce Campbell from My Name is Bruce in an all new movie that begins filming this fall.

Hello everyone. Bruce Campbell here. This urgent message is short, because my keystrokes are monitored and I fear for my life. My partner at Dark Horse comics, Mike Richardson (normally a very rational and talented man), threatened to have his foot soldiers “crush my spleen” if I did what I am about to do. But the fans deserve to know, so with great trepidation I officially announce Bruce Vs. Frankenstein, the sequel to My Name is Bruce. Principal photography begins this fall in Oregon. I’d like to live long enough to see the cameras roll, so please, for the love of God, do not tell anyone – I can’t risk this announcement getting back to Mike! Thank you.

I’m a bit disappointed by this news. While Campbell can and has done some very amazing things, My Name is Bruce was less than a good story.  Still, Bruce is Bruce, and I’m sure I’ll see this one as well.

What about you?

    I’m on the road, thanks to work commitments and have my Name is Bruce lined up to keep me occupied tonight. Will post whether I feel a sequel is a good or bad thing once I’ve watched the first one, but if it means more Bruce Campbell then I’m up for it. They should adapt his book: Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way cuz it’s good fun :-)

    I didn’t care for My Name Is Bruce, I don’t even think that I finished it, honestly. I love Bruce Campbell as an actor, he’s been one of my favorites since I ran across Evil Dead when I was like 14, so 12 years ago. I’d still have liked to have seen him as Mysterio in Spider-man 4 but alas, my ideas weren’t listened to. Either way, I’d still sit down and attempt to watch a sequel just because of my loyalties to all that is Bruce.

    I love everything he does, even the worst of his movies. You don’t like him for being great, you love him for being bad, like 70s kung fu movies. I can’t wait for this to come out, and I’m still waiting for Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash, the comic series was AMAZING!
