Boll loses German funding
Finally the tax loophole in Germany that has been funding Uwe Boll's huge films is at an end, and that means one thing, lesser talent.
I say one thing because I am totally sure that it does not mean the end of Uwe Boll as a film-maker.
This makes the third failure in a row for Uwe Boll with BloodRayne, Alone in the Dark and now In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale which, according to The Hollywood Reporter through Coming Soon, took a mere US $3 million on its opening after costing a rather hefty US $30 million. Now that's a flop.
So enticing critics into a boxing ring and beating them hasn't helped make his films any better, however he's not deterred.
"In the future, I will focus on small films such as (the video game adaptation) 'Postal' or (the Vietnam war drama) 'Tunnel Rats,'...These are films that represent my true passion, and they can be done with small budgets."
Oh those are his passions, so what were the previous films? The ones he did for cash to raise enough for his passion projects?
Yes he may have a 0-3 KO record (that's against), embarrassed a host of big name stars, and wasted tons of investors money, but he's going to keep going. I guess the thing to be thankful about is that he's going to concentrate on his passion projects.
