Blizzard Shoots Down Uwe Boll WOW Project

uwe.jpgThere’s good news for all of you that have signed the petition demanding that Uwe Boll stop wasting film. Blizzard is in total agreement. The “director” has admitted to being shown the door after proposing one of his infamous adaptations based on the World of Warcraft.

But if you’re not going to make a faithful adaptation, why make an adaptation at all? Apparently, the folks over at Blizzard wonder the same thing, since they practically laughed Boll out of their offices when he approached them about making a World of Warcraft adaptation, the director confessed.

“I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, ,We will not sell the movie rights, not to you!especially not to you,’” Boll revealed. “Because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it.”

I’m sure it was a case of open mouth exchange feet, but I can’t get over Boll’s inadvertent admission that it would have been a bad movie. Finally some honesty in Hollywood.

If no one has ever watched a film by him, watch Nightmare Creatures. Your eyes may bleed from laughing soooo hard.

He has really shockingly bad manipulation of the English language. Sorry, that over.

HAHHAHAhAHA. I’m fairly certain this counts as an ‘owned’ moment. Being told “especially not to you” is pure ace.
