UPDATE: Bruce Campbell wary of Sam Raimi’s “Hobb

<p>Many people have been wondering about the source of this article, and I traced it to an IESB interview with Campbell titled "<a href="http://iesb.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2391&Itemid=99" target="_blank">Catching Up With Bruce Campbell</a>".</p>
<p>How this article hasn't been seen before yesterday is surprising since IESB dates it 27th April 2007.</p>
<p>Rotten Tomatoes posts Bruce Campbell’s thoughts on the matter of Sam Raimi and The Hobbit; the actor seems to have reservations about his friend directing it. The <a href="http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10007663-hobbit/news/1664800/" target="_blank">article posted yesterday</a> quotes Bruce Campbell as saying: </p>
<p>“<em>Well, I hope they pay Sam his overages like they didn't pay Peter Jackson. Hey, if they ain't paying Peter Jackson overages, I'd be very afraid, but that's me.</em>” </p>
<p>And if that’s not all, he seems to be on his guard as he regards Bob Shaye and New Line Cinema: </p>
<p>“<em>Bob Shaye-dy? New Lies Cinema? Yeah, these are the guys who distributed the first Evil Dead, don't forget. So, you know, enough said there.</em>” </p>
<p>However, he does consider a cameo appearance in the highly anticipated movie as “<em>hopefully someone that torments the hobbit. Hopefully someone who's not the hobbit.</em>” </p>
