“Bubba Nosferatu,” the prequel to Don Coscarelli’s low-budget genre laugher “Bubba Ho-Tep” would have Bruce Campbell’s Elvis Presley battling vampires.
Now, acclaimed thesp Paul Giamatti has been linked to the film and seems very keen on the project. He tells Rotten Tomatoes that “I would really like to do that…we are trying to do it… I’m playing Colonel Parker, which will be great.”
Unfortunately one thing holding it up is Campbell himself – “Bruce Campbell was waffling around about whether he wants to play Elvis or not again. So that’s the problem…you gotta have Elvis and you really want him playing Elvis, so hopefully we can get him to do it.”
What if they can’t? “If not, I’m sure they will try and find somebody else but I think it’s contingent on whether he’ll do it or not. It’s a great script, a completely insane script.”
