Uwe Boll is up to his old tricks again. The director who has made such financial and critical bombs like Alone In The Dark, BloodRayne and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, has posted a new video on MovieSet.com/Postal, a site created for his new film Postal. The video shows Boll responding to a recent internet petition to get him to stop making movies. You have to see this for yourself, but be forewarned, there is some R-rated language in here, folks. Click below for the video.
If you're wondering what he's talking about, there was an Internet petition created to get Uwe Boll to stop making movies. Last week, Fearnet.com posted an interview with Boll where he was asked about the petition. There were only 18,000 signatures when the interview was published on April 4, and Boll said it would take 1 million signatures to convince him to stop making movies. As of this writing, there are currently just over 140,000 signatures.
A "pro-Boll" petition has been formed (apparently today, from a comment on the Fearnet.com story) and, as of this writing, there are currently 133 total signatures.
UPDATE: According to JoBlo, both Eli Roth and Michael Bay have responded to Boll's video. Roth responded by saying it was, "the best compliment ever," while Bay posted the following on his message board:
"I find people who rant like that - calling shit about both me, and George Clooney - comes from someone screaming because he is not being heard. He is obviously a sad being. When you ask 'do I care?' Not in the slightest."
UPDATE #2: (4.10.08) The madness ensues as Uwe Boll continues to stoke the flames of the internet fans who hate him. Check it out...
