New “Phantasm” and “Bubba Ho-Tep” sequel considered for production

The director of such classics as “Phantasm” and “Bubba Ho-Tep” Don Coscarelli has recently held conversation with actor Paul Giamatti, according to Arrow in the Head.

Giamatti stars in Coscarelli’s new horror comedy “John Dies at the End”, and the two talked briefly about possible joint future projects.

Giamatti in particular said that he would be interested in being involved with “Bubba Ho-Tep” sequel.

Coscarelli, who shot “Phantasm” back in 1979, and “Bubba Ho-Tep” in 2002, said he did not realize that there would still be interest in those films, especially in “Phantasm”, after 30 years.

Coscarelli noted that after he is done working on “John Dies at the End”, he would seriously be considering doing either a new “Phantasm” or “Bubba Ho-Tep” sequel.

By the way, “John Dies at the End” stars 86-year old Angus Scrimm – the leading villain of the “Phantasm” series. Let’s hope that if Coscarelli decides to make another “Phantasm”, Scrimm would still be around to play his part.
