Much maligned director and pugilist Uwe Boll recently announced he will be making a sequel to his 2007 epic In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale which starred Jason Statham and Burt Reynolds. The new movie, currently titled Dungeon Siege 2, will star Expendables co-star Dolph "I must break you" Lundgren who will play a "a cop or like a fighting coordinator" who fights ninjas and goes through time and.... Here's how Boll described the movie to Bloginity in a recent interview.
It's like contemporary, right now big city, and we have Dolph Lundgren basically being a cop or like a fighting coordinator ... and one night he gets attacked by ninjas in his house and fell with the ninjas into a vortex back in time. more about dungeon siege 2 >> Posted 12.06.10 by Jud
Signers of an online petition are attempting to accomplish what a slew of critically-assailed box office bombs have heretofore failed to: Stop German director Uwe Boll from making any more movies. When the folks at FEARnet.com asked Boll about the petition, which has thus far garnered an impressive 63,000-plus signatures, the schlockmeister responsible for such masterworks as Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne and most recently In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale -- movies that have all garnered single-digit ratings on the RottenTomatoes.com Tomatometer -- declared that it would take one million signatures to convince him to quit the business.
1,000,000 is an ambitious number, yes, but an achievable one. If you'd like to see the Teutonic menace end his assault on cinema, head over to petitiononline.com and add your name to the list.

Even the Germans are sick of Uwe Boll, it seems. Yesterday The Hollywood Reporter relayed the cheerful news that the hacktastic director of such epic box office bombs as Alone in the Dark and Bloodrayne may finally be done with big-budget filmmaking, thanks to a new German law closing the tax loophole that allowed Boll to finance his projects.
The final nail in the coffin of Boll's career came last weekend when his latest debacle, the $70 million In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, featuring Ray Liotta and Burt Reynolds, flopped badly at the box office, taking in just over $3 million.
Not to pat myself on the back, but I suggested the very idea to German politicians last week, and I'm thrilled to hear that our Teutonic brethren headed my passionate plea. Now, if we can just deal with the Hasselhoff issue... Posted 01.16.08 by reelz
