Controversial German director Uwe Boll took to his YouTube page last night to release two profanity-laced video rants, where he lashes out at his fans and Hollywood celebrities like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, along with Marvel, Harry Potter and crowd-funding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. These rants come as his latest Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for his sequel Rampage 3: No Mercy has failed. The filmmaker was asking for $55,000 for the sequel, but with just three days left, the campaign has only raised $25,000, leading to these rants where he tells everybody who didn't support his movie to "go f--k yourself." Here's what the director had to say in the descriptions of both Youtube videos, stating he still plans to shoot the sequel next year.
"Never will do crowdfunding again. Thanks to the few they supported Rampage 3, the rest can f--k their mothers incl. Kickstarter and all the idiots who talked me into bulls--t like this. My last words to the Kickstarter campaign for rampage 3. I thank everybody who donated. All indiegogo donations are safe and they will get their prices. Iwill shoot rampage 3 in January."
The filmmaker previously tried to raise funds for Rampage 3: No Mercy through Indiegogo, but he only raised $5,000 of his $80,000 goal. He also tried to use Kickstarter to raise funds for another sequel, Postal 2, but that campaign failed as well. Here's what he had to say in one of the videos about why he wanted to make Rampage 3: No Mercy.
"I want to make Rampage 3 because it is an important movie, but it seems your easier giving $600,000 if you make a movie about some retarded wizard in a forest or for another, whatever, Marvels, Avengers bullshit dirt. So goodbye and goodbye Hollywood."
He went on to blast George Clooney for backing the Darfur documentary Sand and Sorrow, while ignoring the director's own Darfur film, 2009's Attack on Darfur. He also said that stars like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are "laughing" at the fans who go to see their movies. Of course, this isn't the first time Uwe Boll has gone off on an epic rant. He previously held a boxing match with film critics, and also challenged directors such as Michael Bay, Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary to box him, but they all declined.
