Genre demi-god Don Coscarelli, director of one Beastmaster, four Phantasms, and one particularly popular episode of Masters of Horror, has been dropping hopeful little hints about a sequel to his cult fave Bubba Ho-tep for quite some time, but a few of the astute horror sites now bring word that Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires may become a reality more sooner than later.

Of course it's a given that Bruce Campbell will return to play Elvis Presley (you really have to seen Bubba Ho-tep for any of this to make sense), but BD.com just caught wind of a rather colorful little rumor: Could Paul Giamatti be lined up to play Col. Parker in Bubba 2? I'm sure stranger things have happened in the realm of cult horror sequeldom ... even if I can't think of one right now.

Not much regarding BH-t: CotS-V is set in stone just yet; Mr. Coscarelli has his script finished and cast a few lines in the water, but as far as funding, casting, and all that important stuff are concerned, we're still waiting for the good news. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and rent Bubba Ho-tep. Based on a wonderfully offbeat story by Joe Lansdale, it's a flick that (somehow) wedges chills, giggles, wit, and warmth into one irresistible little B-movie.
