Campbell Rejects Bubba Ho-tep Sequel
Actor BRUCE CAMPBELL has turned down the chance to star as ELVIS PRESLEY once again in the sequel to BUBBA HO-TEP, insisting the character is "dead to him".
Campbell has been offered the lead role in the comedy Bubba Nosferatu and the Curse of the She-Vampires, but rejected the opportunity because he and director Don Coscarelli have failed to solve their creative differences.
He tells Fangoria magazine, "Don Coscarelli is a very passionate filmmaker. We got to a few points that we couldn't reconcile. I want to keep our friendship, so we parted ways. So I'm not part of that project."
