Attention, RTers: Ask Uwe Boll a Question!
Your questions answered by the Postal director himself.
RT is a website for the people, and as such we are offering the RT community the chance to pose a question to moviedom's most controversial working director: Uwe Boll.
We'll be meeting Boll later this week as he embarks on a press tour to promote Postal, his latest videogame-to-screen offering. Post your burning questions for the Teutonic Terror below and select lines of inquiry will be put to him on your behalf. (Try to keep it tactful. And no, we're not going to challenge Boll to a boxing match.)
Boll's upcoming Postal hits theaters later this month (May 23) and is a sort of departure for the man known best for films like Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. Unlike those actioners, Postal is an intentional comedy that mines today's political atmosphere for laughs with the delicacy of a bull in a china shop. Borrowing its premise from the videogame of the same name, Postal follows a down-on-his-luck loser named Dude (Zack Ward) as his worst day ever turns into a frenzy of bullets, babes, terrorists, and angry mobs; suffice to say that avian bird flu, Osama bin Laden, and a doomsday cult come into play. Did we mention the full-frontal Dave Foley?
Nearly every Boll flick nabs a handful of Hollywood stars; Postal features the aforementioned Dave Foley, Zack Ward, J.K. Simmons, Verne Troyer, Larry "The Soup Nazi" Thomas as Osama bin Laden, and Uwe Boll...as Uwe Boll.
Boll, a natural publicity magnet, has single-handedly spread word-of-mouth for Postal's debut by posting a video online disparaging filmmakers like George Clooney, Eli Roth and Michael Bay; more recently, he prematurely confirmed that he'd step into the ring opposite Bay, as he had before against his harshest critics (Bay later denied the showdown.)
Below, one of Boll's recent promo videos for Postal, in which he delivers a PSA-style lesson in the character of General George S. Patton. Remember to submit your Boll questions below!
**UPDATE: Thanks to all of you who submitted questions. We talked to Boll this morning and he answered some of your burning inquiries! Stay posted for our full interview soon!
