Boll Has Plate Full with $60M "Dungeon Siege," "BloodRayne 2," more

A recent interview with game-to-film auteur Uwe Boll over at GameDaily BIZ has the filmmaker discussing his plans regarding the "BloodRayne" sequel (perhaps a trilogy!), as well as the status of his epic, "In The Name of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale," not to mention even more projects in the making.

With a $60 million budget (!), Boll has completed "Dungeon Siege" and has trimmed it from nearly three hours to a two-hour running time before it debuts in his homeland of Germany this summer. However, the most eager of fans can look forward to the original director’s cut in all its glory once the film lands on DVD. Despite a cast including Ray Liotta, Jason Statham, John Rhys-Davies, and Burt Reynolds, Boll is still seeking North American distribution.

Meanwhile, Boll has proceed with "BloodRayne 2," with leading lady Natassia Malthe replacing the original’s Kristanna Loken, who may very well return for a proposed third film, set in World War II, should the Western sequel make back its $8.5 million budget.

"Rayne’s still using her swords to fight with, but she also has weapons because it’s the Wild West," said Boll. "It will be a darker, creepier atmosphere with lots of vampire bloodsucking, but not the type of butchering we did with the first film."

Soon after, Boll plans to complete "Postal" (in which he appears – as himself) and "Seed," not to mention an adaptation of "Far Cry." Because of such a full workload, he has passed on directing duties for the "Alone in the Dark" sequel to its writers, Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer. While Boll may still produce the sequel, it has to yet to be confirmed whether lead Christian Slater will return.

Boll: "If he accepts that, he’s the first choice to play him as Edward Carnby again. If he doesn’t, I think we should go for someone who looks like Edward Carnby."
