Uwe Boll's On Kickstarter Raising Money For Postal 2

Oh God, Uwe Boll's on Kickstarter, Raising Money for Postal 2

Well, it finally happened. Uwe Boll, maker of terrible movies in general and terrible video game adaptations in specific, has gone to Kickstarter in search of money for his next flick, which of course is a sequel to 2007's wretched Postal. He's raised $US2 so far.

Boll, the creative force behind flops based on House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne (with two sequels) and even Dungeon Siege, is looking for $US500,000 to start shooting the flick and will have until October 27 to raise it.

Boll aspires to make Postal 2 into another political satire, name-dropping Edward Snowden and referencing other current events in the pitch. It's a good M.O.: He can pretend this bullshit will have some sort of message and, if it's still utterly incoherent, he can go lol nm j/k because it's all a big ironic joke.

"This movie is important nobody besides Uwe Boll got the balls to make it," says the pitch.

The project began early this afternoon, starting with $US2 in its tip jar. Prizes and comps are offered for donations up to $US10,000, including a speaking role in the flick and blame credit as an executive producer. For all of the offers involving in-person VIP treatment, donors have to pay their own lodging and airfare.

Boll, as Brian Ashcraft pointed out three years ago, is incredibly good at finding money for his films despite a richly deserved reputation as a schlockmaster nonpareil. He also has no trouble getting name actors to go along for the ride. So it's possible that Boll already has money for a Postal sequel, and this Kickstarter is a stunt designed to thumb noses in the segment of the Internet that despises him, and gin up some awareness for his next film.

If the Kickstarter is successful, Postal 2 will begin shooting in the spring and will release in August 2014. If the Kickstarter fails, hell, who knows, Boll still might find a way to inflict Postal 2 on us.

    I'll shell out $2 if he can find a Gary Coleman impersonator to appear in it.

    Personally rather than give him money for that movie he should be paying people to see it.

    $100 to start with than a bonus $1 a minute to see how much you can take.

    $220 to see a movie it actually very good money it's over $100 an hour (120 min movie, don't forget the bonus), and yet you think of the director and think it's way too low don't you.

    Perhaps he should change his tactics, if he doesn't make $500,000 he will make another movie.

    oh man id love to See a POSTAL 2 movie, i loved the first one, if i could afford it i would play the entire thing

      srsly?

    I'd rather see someone take him on in the ring again - and this time hopefully beat some sense into him. Postal may be his best work - but that doesn't mean we want a sequel.

    I watched Dungeon Siege and Far Cry.
    To quote Sheldon: The horrors... oh the horrors!!!!
    Those are 3 hours of my life I will never get back. Someone please stop him!

    Haha, I loved Postal 2... and his take on the Postal universe for the movie (with help/oversight from the game developers) was actually pretty good for a Uwe Boll movie.

    It's not exceptional, but it was definitely amusing if you're a fan of the games.

    Well, if it stops him trashing a new franchise - even just temporarily - it may be money well spent.

    Uwe Boll is amazing! His movies are hilariously bad and make great "Well, it's 3am and we're drunk" movies.

    I thought Kickstarter didn't allow charity pledges? Because this is clearly for funding his ego.

    Has anyone started a Kickstarter to raise funds to STOP Uwe Boll making Postal 2? Because I would give money to that.
