Should we be concerned?

A couple of newly announced projects bear similarities to Bubba Nosferatu

Precious little has been heard on the Bubba Nosferatu front recently. I continue to keep my ears open for any updates and the second there are any you'll be the first to know. I have seen a few announcements of new movies recently that seem to have similar fish-out-of-water themes to those in Bubba Ho-Tep and Bubba Nosferatu. In Bubba Ho-Tep old Elvis was turned into a kickass mummy killer, and I may be wrong here, but I don't recall hearing many tales of the real life Elvis hunting down spectres and soulsuckers. Two new projects have been discussed recently that set real life people in unlikely circumstances in the same sort of way. Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov have optioned the movie rights to Seth Grahame-Smith's newly released novel 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' in which Abe sets out to avenge the loss of his mother to vampires. This sounds like a similar set up to Bubba Nosferatu's intended plot (i.e. well-known figure faces off against vampires). Seth Grahame-Smith is best known for being the author of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'. The second movie announcement that caught my eye was the news that Warner Bros had a script treatment for 'Leonardo Da Vinci And The Soldiers Of Forever' in which Da Vinci faces off against creatures from the underworld. I like to think that Bubba Nosferatu, 'Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' and 'Leonardo Da Vinci And The Soldiers Of Forever' can all develop at the same time. It would be a real shame if these 2 higher-profile movie concepts caused Bubba Nosferatu to stall. It would be great to hear some fresh news on the Bubba Nosferatu front. Don? Paul? Ron? Any news or updates you can give us?

You probably already know, but if you look on Ron Perlman's profile on IMDB. Yeah, i think they're making one.
