May 11: Don Coscarelli talks BUBBA sequel possibilities

Fango writer Ian Spelling talked to writer/director Don Coscarelli about the potential for a follow-up to his art-house hit BUBBA HO-TEP (arriving on DVD May 25 from MGM):

”After a two-year stint shepherding BUBBA HO-TEP through its festival play and then theatrical run,” Coscarelli tells Fango, “I am removing my marketing hat and putting back on my director’s. I am definitely keen to do a sequel. One thing we learned early on was that you could take the word ‘Bubba’ and follow it with any monster name, and you have a sequel.

“There were strange ideas floating around—BUBBA MOTHRA…BUBBA BLOB…but in the film’s end credits we announced BUBBA NOSFERATU: CURSE OF THE SHE-VAMPIRES,” he continues. “Bruce [Campbell] likes this one, especially the idea of it taking place before Elvis [officially] died. It would follow the King and his Memphis Mafia as they leave the set of KING CREOLE, down in New Orleans, and get involved with a coven of female vampires—lots of fun hooking Elvis up with chicks with teeth. I’m a little more partial to BUBBA SASQUATCH, in which Elvis would wind up in a rest home in the north woods where a tribe of killer Bigfoots are snatching the old folks and eating them—and then it would be up to the King to burn some Bigfoot ass.

“However, all of the above is predicated on strong DVD sales,” Coscarelli cautions. “But from our early reports, it looks like the Bruce Campbell fan nation and a lot of other folks are already buying the DVD, even though it doesn’t come out until the end of May.” Watch this site for a chance to win the disc beginning this week.

So what else does Coscarelli have in the works? Another entry in his most famous franchise, perhaps? “I’m also developing several other projects, even some outside the genre. I’d also still like to do another PHANTASM film. Reggie Bannister and Angus Scrimm are still in great shape and raring to go.”
