Actor Bruce Campbell has revealed that he hopes his comic Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead will become a film, but Sam Raimi doesn’t seem interested.
Bruce Campbell he revealed that he proposed to his great friend Sam Raimi to make a film based on his comic DC Horror Presents: Rock Vs. The Army of the Dead.
The protagonist of the horror saga The House would in fact be interested in bringing the story he created together with the artist Eduardo Risso to the big screen.
What Campbell’s comic is about
The story of Sgt. Rock Vs. The Army of the Dead begins in Berlin, 1944, when the Nazis are being defeated by the Allied forces and decide to make one last attempt to turn the tide of the war. Hitler and his evil scientists create a serum capable of bringing deceased soldiers back to life, creating an army of the dead even stronger than when they were alive. Sergeant Rock, hero in Europe, and his team find themselves on a mission into enemy territory, where they must face the strangest and most horrific enemies they have ever encountered: zombie Nazis.

The possible film
Bruce Campbell spoke about the possible film stating: “That’s a Michael Bay style movie if it ever gets made. One of the Hemsworths gets involved, get the cheapest one to play Sgt. Rock. It’s a Brad Pitt style role. You need that tough blond guy“.
The actor added: “I think it just came out in graphic novel form, they got all the issues together, and I want to take that volume and put it on Michael Bay’s desk like, ‘Man, start working, start prepping.’“.
However, Bruce initially thought of his great friend Sam Raimi: “I gave it to Sam Raimi. I told him ‘Sam, your next movie’“.
The director, however, did not accept the proposal and, for now, the comic is not yet destined to become a film.
