Uwe Boll sues distributer of BloodRayne
Uwe Boll and his production company are about to sue the distributer of Bloodrayne after the extremely poor run it received in the US. The claims are quite harsh and seem to appear quite valid pathetic box office returns or not.
From Empire comes the news:
Seems that while Dr Boll was finishing up the Kristanna Loken-starring film in 2005, Zane – who also stars in the movie – suggested that he sell the US distribution rights to Romar. The suit charges that Romar breached the agreement they reached to open the film in at least 2,000 cinemas across the States, failed to pay Boll and co their share of the gross proceeds (probably about $100, given the box office, but that’s beside the point) and never using the $10 million the production company provided for advertising.
Oh dear, a missing US $10 million that was supposed to be for advertising? That's a bit more serious than just some sour grapes on Boll's part, and what is Zane got to do with all this, is he being sued because he suggested it? Seems as though there's more to this story which is yet to out.
