Uwe Boll to Continue Campaign of Terror
Somewhere, an angel just lost its wings.Uwe Boll has purchased the rights to yet another videogame adaptation.
Slashfilm -- reporting on an item from Arrow in the Head -- brings word that the director you love to hate has announced plans to bring Legend: Hand of God to the screen. The action RPG is still unreleased, but that hasn't dampened Boll's enthusiasm for the film version. From the article:
"I think Legend will be very successful because of its unique blend of high fantasy and dark atmosphere. The world of Legend contains major crossover potential and was already adapted as novel and audio book," says Boll from the set of Far Cry, which he currently works on in Vancouver with Til Schweiger, Ralf Möller and Udo Kier.
The article goes on to note that "Boll expects to shoot Legend with a $40 million budget in 2009," which is the saddest thing we've read all day.
