Boll hopes for more game films
Hollywood movie director Uwe Boll has announced that he is not planning sequels for Far Cry, Alone in the Dark or House of the Dead, regardless of the fact that he still holds the licences for the games-turned-films. Sci Fi Wire does however report that the much maligned director is planning a BloodRayne 2, or would at least like to work on a sequel. "I have the right to a sequel for BloodRayne, and there are many possibilities," he told the Sci Fi Wire. "I'd love to see her wash up on the shore 100 years later and end up in the Wild West, and then later go to World War II or something like that." Wonderful.
Of forthcoming sequel House of the Dead 2: Dead Aim, Boll stated that he had nothing to do with the project, which he described as 'more expansive' than his own concept for the sequel. The director's work on the original House of the Dead was arguably his most badly-received project, though Alone in the Dark proved particularly unpopular with the critics too. "Last year we only had Resident Evil 2 come out as a videogame movie, and this year there are a lot of them, but these movies will only become more mainstream, have better plots and have better actors," Boll commented, highlighting the growing significance of games-turned-films in the movie industry.
Gaming films are certainly becoming increasingly notable, this week alone an animated feature based on Rare's forthcoming Xbox 360 RPG Kameo was announced, whilst a third Resident Evil film has also been confirmed titled 'Afterlife'.
