Deadbolt has a great feature on video game director, Uwe Boll:
Boll told Coming Soon, "Dungeon Siege transcends the video game genre and appeals to mainstream entertainment audiences ... Based on the success of House of the Dead, I believe Dungeon Siege contains major crossover potential because of its unique blend of action and fantasy, on the order of Lord of the Rings." Boll’s cast for the fantasy epic includes Jason Statham, Leelee Sobieski, John Rhys-Davies, Ray Liotta, Matthew Lillard, Burt Reynolds, Ron Perlman, Claire Forlani, and Kristanna Loken.-- Boll Keeps Rolling
It's esssentially an overview of the infamous director's career, inlcuding the theories about German tax law which apparently allow the man continue working. I've taken Brinstar's advice on BloodRayne, although I was amazed to see that Guinevere Turner helped write the damn thing. Going from indie lesbian flick to social commentary horror to schlocky b-movie action is a very odd career path for young "Max".
Now, I've seen House of the Dead. And it was bad. bad. The best part was seeing Lois Lane's breasts (if you've watched Smallville, you'll understand). So what will happen with these movies when Boll can attract solid B-list actors and some decent writers?
If Rotten Tomatoes is any indication, not much.
