Uwe Boll alive and well and making more (bad) movies

uwebollScreen Daily is reporting that the infamous (and very bad) movie director, Uwe Boll, is getting the ball rolling on an Alone in the Dark film sequel. The shooting will begin this summer in New York with the tentative title being Alone in the Dark 2. It will have a minuscule budget of $7.5 million. Boll will be announcing a director and casting shortly thereafter. So wait, Boll will actually not direct the sequel? Yea!

Eventhough the original Alone in the Dark film was not such a good movie (read: understatement), the first film somehow earned enough money to produce a sequel.

Boll will spend the summer shooting the movie adaptation of Far Cry in Vancouver. Screen Daily also revealed German actor Til Schweiger (Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, King Arthur) will be starring in the film.

Boll has a few other video game films coming up: the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale starring Ray Liotta, Jason Statham, Burt Reynolds and Leelee Sobieski which will open in August. Postal, starring Zack Ward as Postal Dude opening in North America on September 28th, two planned sequels to Bloodrayne and a film based on Legacy of Kain.

    Another bad director who has no clue on the lok game let alone its rich script and history. Leave it to Hollywood to mess up a good game and thing. He messed up BloodRayne. Also knew nothing of the game and didn’t get it right till the third installment.. I say this leave it to the directors and the producers who made the game to do these movies and have them pick the directors or producers who are willing to do the movies justice instead of excuse my french ” raping them.” I f you never played them why do a movie when you have no clue on its history.
