Bruce vs. Frankenstein: The "Expendables" of Horror

By News

According to a recent interview with The Hero Complex, Bruce wants the Bruce vs. Frankenstein to be the “Expendables” of horror movies, or more like the “It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World” of horror.

“I want to get so many horror movie stars that people can’t possibly not see the movie. I want to give them other stuff to do. I want to have Kane Hodder be very particular about what he eats. I want Robert Englund to be a tough guy, like he knows tae kwon do or something. I want to find out the hidden sides of all these people. Some will play themselves, some will play alternate characters as well. I may approach Kane Hodder to play Frankenstein. He could be Kane Hodder himself fighting himself as Frankenstein. It could be crazy.”
