Army of the Dead/My Name is Bruce updates

 Shocktillyoudrop has a lots of good news to report today.


STYD was able to talk to Dark Horse Comics founder Mike Richardson who said the upcoming Bruce Campbell Flick, My Name is Bruce, should be in theatres sometime in October.

“Some people maybe thought the film fell out or that there was something wrong with it,” Richardson says, touching on Bruce‘s slow journey getting before wide audiences. It was roughly a year ago that it screened to CineVegas film fest attendees. “We did our shoot, put it in the can and the studio that financed it liked it so much they gave us more money to do a second shoot. We beefed it up so it could go into the theaters.” 

According to IMDB, the film is about B Movie Legend Bruce Campbell who is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and forced to fight a real monster in a small town in Oregon.

I don’t know how wide of a release this movie will have, but more than likely, it will be pretty small. So if you want to see this movie, chances are you’re going to have to wait for the dvd. Also, they’re already planning a sequal!

enjoy the trailer here.


 STYD also managed to speak with Zach Snyder about Army of the Dead.

In the hustle and bustle of Tuesday night’s Saturn Awards ceremony in Universal City, California, managed to squeeze a mini-update from Zack and Deborah Snyder (300) regarding Army of the Deadwhich the pair are producing.

With director Matthijs van Heijningen locked in place, Zack, who is busy in post-production on Watchmen, hopes shooting will begin, “Really soon. The studio [Warner Bros.] seems to love our director and love our script. The movie, for me, is all about spectacle and being crazy, so it’s just trying to find a balance with the studio.”

Deborah adds, “We’re hoping to start this fall.”

Written by Joby Harold (
interview), Army of the Dead is set in a quarantined Las Vegas in the not-too-distant future and focuses on a father who tries to save his daughter from imminent death in a zombie-infested world.

I hope that some of the visual masterpieces from 300 can carry over into this film. While I usually despise CGI in zombie flicks, I can give Mr. Snyder the benefit of the doubt with this one.
