We’ve been hearing report after report concerning a Bubba Ho-Tep 2, everything from the title being ‘Bubba Nosferatu’ to from the film being the prequel telling the tale of the famus Elvis “switch.” But in a recent interview, director Don Coscarelli seemed like he didn’t know anything about the sequel, which does seem likely to happen. Read on for the scoop…

“Bubba Ho?Tep” (now showing at select cinemas across the UK) is without a doubt one of the year’s most enjoyable movies and, according to our exclusive chat with director Don Coscarelli, fans of this tale of an aged Elvis battling an Egyptian mummy can expect to see the King of Rock n Roll taking on some more supernatural foes in a follow?up.
We asked him outright if he and leading man Bruce Campbell are set to bring the rumoured “Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She Vampires” to the silver screen anytime soon; “My sources say yes. Things are looking quite good. MGM was very happy with the results in the States, the UK’s looking very solid, there’s a lot of fan interest in it ? and Bruce would love to play some more of the old hound dog! So there’s a good chance we actually will make that film.” However don’t expect filming to kick off any time soon as Coscarelli has yet to come up with anything other than the title, “There is no story (yet) so we’re gonna try and cook up something good?hard to say (when), but as soon as we can.”
