Ron Perlman Hoping Bubba Nosferatu Will Shoot This Year

Ron Perlman

With Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy II now behind us, I'm anxious to see Ron Perlman on the big screen again. I Sell the Dead won't get a big release, I'm planning on catching Mutant Chronicles via On Demand sometime this weekend, and Thomas Jane's The Dark Country doesn't have a release date yet. So what else is on his plate? One of the many projects listed on his IMDb page is one called The Devil's Tomb, directed by Jason Connery, although unfortunately it's going straight-to-DVD. Another one is the Bubba Nosferatu sequel, which we updated in October of last year, reporting that Perlman was officially set to star.

Perlman spoke to SciFi Wire yesterday and gave them a few updates on both The Devil's Tomb (which will be out on DVD on May 26th) and Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, the long in-development sequel to Don Coscarelli's cult classic Bubba Ho-Tep from 2002. Last year, we reported that Bruce Campbell wasn't going to return as Elvis, so Coscarelli went searching for a replacement and ended up with Perlman. But considering this sequel has been seven years in the making, will it actually happen? Perlman seems hopeful, saying, "it's looking good for maybe late fall that we'll get down to principal photography."

He also confirms the rest of the details. "I'm on board. Paul Giamatti is on board [to play Colonel Tom Parker]. Don [Coscarelli] is on board. The script is finished. They are thinking that the resources are finally in place. And when I get done with season two of 'Sons of Anarchy' [on F/X], I think I'll have a little window at the same time Paul does, and we hope to do it then." This is definitely good news, as I'd love to see this sequel, even though I wasn't the biggest fan of Bubba Ho-Tep. Maybe I'm just looking forward to seeing one of my other favorite actors, Perlman, try to fill the shoes of the one-and-only Bruce Campbell. Excited?

It's very exciting, yes! I loved Bubba Ho-Tep; it was a wonderful little film and if it had been any other genre than a horror movie, Bruce Campbell would have been nominated for a whole slew of awards. He was brilliant in the lead role, so Perlman's got some big shoes to fill. I hope it gets a wider release than the first one; Coscarelli deserves a hit after all these years.
