Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

At the tail end of Bubba-Ho-Tep, Bruce Campbell fans everywhere were teased with the words, “Elvis returns in Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires starring Sebastian Haff.”  Will Bruce Campell actually return to the role of the King? (There have been rumors to the contrary.) And just who is Sebastian Haff, anyway?  Word is that Stephen Romano has penned a screenplay, based on a story by Don Coscarelli and Joe R. Lansdale.

Screenplay by Joan O’Brien and Charles Denton
Directed by Jerry Lewis

Clowns and the Holocaust. Who wouldn’t want to see that? Never released due to the bad taste factor, but after Life is Beautiful, could the world be ready to see Jerry Lewis take on the death camps? Read about the movie’s history in an article from Film Threat.

Roger Rabbit Two: The Toon Platoon
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

by Nat Mauldin
As Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a parody of film noir, this movie would have taken on the war genre, with Roger involved in WWII.

This was one of the first “Almost a Movie” scripts I collected in hard copy form, and I’m happy to have found a PDF of it online. (That saves me the effort of having to scan it myself!)

Read a review at Film Buff Online. See “Who Screwed Roger Rabbit” at the Animation World Network.

Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

Treatment by Unknown
Bruce Campbell himself thought this movie probably wouldn’t work. How do you do each franchise justice? Personally, I think the Friday the 13th and Elm Street series interlock nicely, but tying in the Evil Dead continuity seems wrong. After this projected sequel to Freddy Vs. Jason was dropped, Bloody-Disgusting posted the treatment, but it has since been removed.

Recently, the concept was reworked into a comic book, available here.

Bruce Campbell was to have starred in this parody of Indiana Jones. Sam Raimi directed a 10 minute short to raise funding, but the project didn’t get off the ground.
