Wizard World Day 3 - Bruce Campbell Panel June 2, 2012

Day two (or day three for everyone else) was on Saturday.  Because i did so much on Saturday this post is going to focus on the panel that I attended, Bruce Campbell.  We got to the convention a little late and decided to check out the Bruce Campbell panel. 
During the panel Bruce took fans with Evil Dead tattoos on stage to have a contest.  Six people went up and the winner, a man planning to tattoo both legs with evil dead characters won receiving $2 from the pocket of Bruce Campbell.  
Bruce also talked a lot about his upcoming projects including the Evil Dead remake which he, Sam Raimi, and Rob Tapert are all involved in.  The film is being shot now and should be in theaters or at least finished by next year.  He also mentioned that there would not be a lot of CGI in the new film rather they would be using old fashioned makeup effects.  
Bruce also talked about his upcoming project, OZ, which is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz.  The film also stars James Franco as the Wizard and Campbell mentioned that he has a pivotal role.  The film is being made by Disney so he couldn't say too much because they had representatives at the convention dressed as klingons.  
Overall the panel was a great time.  Even if you have never heard of Bruce Campbell (not possible) you would enjoy his panel!  His best line had to Miami - once the face of homelessness now the home of facelessness.
Check back tomorrow for all of the details about the truly amazing costume contest!
