Boll sues Billy Zane

May. 2, 2008by:

Uwe Boll Notoriously terrible filmmaker and pugilistic antogonizer is continuing his reign of terror by suing actor Billy Zane, claiming Zane owes him 700,000 dollars in revenues from the 2005 mega-flop BLOODRAYNE. More specifically, Boll claims that Zane was the one who suggested Romar Entertainment distribute the film and that Romar president James Schramm promised the film would open in 2000 theaters. Moreover, Zane received a pay-out of 900,000 dollars and the film only opened in 950 theaters. Either Boll's strapped for cash or he's looking for financing for his next series of painfully horrible video game adaptations.

Extra Tidbit: Anybody ever think that Boll is a diabolical genius who purposely makes atrocious films? Seriously, the guy's amassed a ludicrous amount of fame for doing this. Maybe he knows exactly what he's doing.

I think the lawsuit smacks of desperation, but, to a degree, I think Boll knows what he's doing. He's been able to acquire funding, theatrical releases, and decent actors for his films. Ben Kingsley for god's sake! As much as I don't care for him, he's doing something right.

Bolll ....

.... should have his own talk show (called , for example, Superboll). There he could fight other director and s*** on other movies that are better than his. New Jerry Springer Show? You bet your a** :)

Yeah, but fame to what end? Everybody thinks he's a douche. And a ludicrous amount of fame? No. On sites like these, maybe, but 90% of my friends would have no idea who this guy is.

Billy Zane called the f'n walk off... Boll has picked on fat teenagers... Anyone who thinks he's really famous needs to get outside a bit more... People don't even know about the movies he made, never mind that he's a filmmaker... "They made a house of the dead movie? What? When?"

The guy is a walking joke. Not only does he make terrible movies, but his attitude towards critics is the most pathetic and immature shit I've ever seen from a director. Even if that petition reaches 1 000 000 signatures, he'll likely continue to direct crap films like nothing happened.

Boll Knows

A) Him sueing Billy Zane is absurd, but who knows the truth? B) I think the "Extra Tidbit" is correct. I think he knows exactly what he is doing with all these awful films he is making. Please bear in mind, that thanks to a tax loop (recently disabled) in Germany, the studio that backed most of his films (maybe all) made money if the film failed. So, now, he just needs to make one under the new tax laws, then I'll judge. FYI- Postal, is his first film under the new tax laws.

I blame the people who hire him. Who backs this guy with his track record? I saw POSTAL and that movie cost 20 million, but it didn't nearly look it. What a waste of funds.

lol tidbit

It's very possible! He could be a genius making shitty movies on purpose. Especially with the education he has, he should be able to do these things better, yet he doesn't. I think that he's just really mediocre and doesn't strain himself to do much better because of his surprise fame. After House of the Dead he probably was pissed with himself but with the fame he got he figured it must be working pretty well for him, so keep it up.

Maybe

Maybe he is hoping that Tim Burton will one day make a film based on him like he did with Ed Wood.

GENIUS? BOLL? WHA..?!

Boll is suing Billy Zane? The Phantom guy that nobody has cared about for the past decade or so? I agree with Taldaran...Uwe Boll hopes to have Burton make a film outta' him. Unless you know, Burton pukes at the idea the moment it crosses his mind. Boll's not a genius. He's just a regular prick / dickhead / cockface who's famous (for all the wrong reasons) enough to have his voice heard. Billy Zane is desperate enough to star in Bloodrayne and now Boll wants to sue to poor chap? C'mon, leave

Billy Zane deserves the money as compensation for being in another Boll shitpile special.

(Someone photoshop the mic in that pic with a big fat cock.)

Maybe...

If I had a sexual rendezvous with Uwe, he'd stop calling people faggots.
