Uwe Boll goes serious. Billy Zane has his back
Posted by LiveFor on April 3, 2009
Uwe Boll, master of the art of filmmaking, winner of multiple Oscars and loved by Video Game players and film fans everywhere is making another film. Only one fact in that previous statement was true.
This time his new film is a serious one. I know, I know, BloodRayne was almost Shakespearean in its intent, but no this one is really serious (for those not yet up to speed, I am being quite sarcastic).
According to Filmstalker Janjaweed aka Darfur “tells the story of American journalists in Sudan who are torn between returning home to report on what they have seen or to stay and try and help the victims of the atrocities there, something the countries of the world were unwilling to do…yet again.“
Variety have the news on who will be starring in the film.
Edward Furlong (American History X, Terminator 2)) will star alongside Billy Zane and Kristanna Loken (BloodRayne) in Uwe Boll’s “Janjaweed.” Drama is lensing in Cape Town, South Africa. The film follows American journalists confronting atrocities in Sudan.
Furlong next appears in John Morrissey’s “Tequila,” indie “This Is Not a Movie,” and another Boll film, “Stoic.”
I am a big fan of the Zane as some of you no doubt know. He would have been a kick ass Bruce Wayne / Batman back in the day. However, I don’t think starring in a Uwe Boll film is the right thing for him to do.
What do you make of that? Boll doing a serious film with issues and everything? Do you think he will do it justice or will it crash and burn?
