Bubba Ho-Tep became a cult hit in 2002 with its story about a mummy that stalks a nursing home and is dispatched by a man who thinks he's Elvis (Bruce Campbell) and another who thinks he's former President John F.

In 2008, Ron Perlman was suggested as a possible replacement for Campbell by Paul Giamatti, who is set to play Elvis' manager Colonel Parker in the movie, but, again, progress stalled.
