Bubba Nosferatu Still Lives Says Giamatti


Ever since Don Coscarelli's amazing Bubba Ho-Tep I've been chomping at the bit to see a sequel to that amazing film. Not long after we heard about Bubba Nosferatu. Unfortunately after awhile Bruce Campbell announced that he would not be returning to the role of Elvis. It was a hard hit to the production no doubt but at the time it was later rumored that Ron Perlman would replace him with Paul Giamatti playing Colonel Tom Parker.

Now we are still waiting for the movie and it seems like the movie will never be made. But Giamatti has told MTV that the film WILL get made, "We've been trying to make that for two, three years, and we're going to get it done at some point. I'm going to f---ing break my spine in half if I have to to get that thing done."

He went on to explain why exactly he thinks Hollywood won't take a chance on Bubba Nosferatu, "I think it's just the atmosphere of movies right now, smaller movies. Nobody has the balls to make a movie for under -- it's got to be a $40 million comedy or a $200 million 'Avatar,' and that's it," he said. "Those are the only things anybody wants to make right now. Nobody wants to do anything else. Everybody's terrified of doing anything else except that kind of thing. So that movie is deemed way too bizarre and outside the box right now. Which is stupid, because there's an audience for that movie, totally."
