The man everyone loves to hate, Uwe Boll, has just teamed up with Freestyle Releasing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, they will be distributing three films together.
In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale is the headliner in this package. Based on the Dungeon Siege videogame, the film stars Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Ron Perlman, Leelee Sobieski, John Rhys-Davies, Matthew Lillard and Burt Reynolds. It will open January 18th, 2008 all across America.
Freestyle co-president Marke Borde stated "Freestyle is really getting behind this picture. We've hired support staff just to market this picture, and we plan on reaching out to both traditional media as well as video game media to take full advantage of the Microsoft Dungeon Siege video game."
Boll plans on promoting the film at this year's Comic Con. Borde continued, "It's a pretty big picture and it plays great. I don't chase movies based on video games and any pre-awareness that those franchises might have with an audience. I chase movies that are good."
Uwe Boll's long awaited dark comedy Postal is also part of the deal. It will open on September 28th, 2007
