Paul Giamatti gives us some new hope for Bubba Nosferatu

He says "I'm going to f***ing break my spine in half if I have to to get that thing done."

We all want to get Bubba Nosferatu made and for a while Paul Giamatti seems to have been the driving force behind getting it done. It is well known that Giamatti loves Bubba Ho-Tep and has been keen to work on the sequel 'Bubba Nosferatu'. Paul Giamatti has been slated to play Elvis' manipulative manager Colonel Tom Parker for a few years now. He has spoken a few times about how much he wants to get the movie into production. Bruce Campbell's hesitance to be involve was a serious setback to the production but the biggest problem currently seems to be a lack of funding. Paul Giamatti spoke with the folks behind the MTV Movies Blog about Bubba Nosferatu in an article published on the blog today. He said: "We've been trying to make that for two, three years, and we're going to get it done at some point. I'm going to f***ing break my spine in half if I have to to get that thing done. We've been trying so hard and we've had so many near-misses," he continued. "It's almost come together like 15 freaking times and then it falls apart. At some point we're going to get that done because it's a great script. We'll get it done at some point." It sounds like there is some serious resolve behind his intentions to get the movie made as soon as possible. Bubba Nosferatu certainly needs a decent lead actor and Don Coscarelli back to direct and the thing most likely to get things moving in the rtight direction at the moment would appear to be Giamatti. He finished by saying: "We'll find some way to do it, I swear to god. I think 'Bubba Ho-tep' is just a f***ing great movie. I really do. We'll make this other one somehow." I'm sure we'll all be rooting that they do.
