Cast Joins Uwe Bolls Dungeon Siege
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Statham and Leelee Sobieski are set to headline the cast of director Uwe Boll's $60 million adaptation of the sword-and-sorcery video game Dungeon Siege, which begins filming Sunday in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Statham, whose credits include Cellular and Collateral, plays the film's hero, Farmer, and Sobieski, who credits range from Eyes Wide Shut to Max, has been cast as Muriella, daughter of the court sorcerer Merrick, who will be played by John Rhys Davies, who appeared in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Also starring are Ron Perlman (Hellboy) as Norick, Farmer's friend; Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) as Duke Fallow; Burt Reynolds (The Longest Yard) as King Konreid; and Kristanna Loken (BloodRayne) as Elora, an enchanted tree-like creature whose support proves critical to Farmer. The production will film in and around Vancouver through mid-September.
