‘My Name Is Bruce’ To Hit Theatres In October

25 06 2008

nullMy Name Is Bruce was finished about a year ago, but very few people have ever seen it. The story is stars Bruce Campbell, star of the Evil Dead trilogy, playing himself. Fans mistake him as the character he plays in the films, Ash, and he is dragged from his Oregon trailer into a fight with a real monster.

It Seems that My Name Is Bruce is finally getting a wide theatrical release, as well as some money for a reshoot. This news comes from The Movie Blog by way of ShockTillYouDrop:

ShockTillYouDrop.com attended the Saturn Awards on Tuesday night in Universal City, California and caught up with Dark Horse Comics’ Mike Richardson, who told us that Bruce Campbell’s My Name is Bruce will hit theaters this 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.”

This is awesome news! This movie looks pretty hilarious, and I can’t wait to see what it looks now that they can afford to beef it up.

Here’s a trailer from last year.
