I bet there are a lot of people groaning and swearing after reading the headline for this article, but alas, it is true. This time however, Mr. Uwe Boll is smart and is making the film BEFORE the game is actually released.
The good folks at Slashfilm give us this:
Arrow in The Head reports that Boll has acquired rights to an unreleased action roleplaying game, Legend: Hand of God. Boll expects to shoot Legend with a $40 million budget in 2009. The game will be released in the United States early next year.
Well, what can I say about Mr. Uwe Boll? I surprisingly don’t hate him like the rest of the online community does. Sure, his films are bad. I only watched ‘Alone in The Dark’ because my former employer (Arrow in the Head’s John Fallon) had a small cameo in the film. As soon as his cameo was over, so was my viewing experience of AITD. I never watched ‘BloodRayne’ because I had heard horrendous things about it, and I only watched ‘House of the Dead’ because I’m a sucker for zombie films.
But, one extraordinary thing I noticed about Mr. Uwe Boll is that he has become the Ed Woods are our time, which is why he gets as much work as he does. Am I looking forward to this project? No. Although, I am willing to give ‘Postal’ a chance. So like or not, Uwe Boll’s film career is still flourishing, and we will see more of his films in the near future. What are your thoughts?
