Uwe Boll doesn’t have the greatest reputation in Hollywood. You may know him as the guy who directed all those really bad video games adaptations like House of the Dead, Postal, BloodRayne and In the Name of the King. Or you may not, don’t feel bad, you’re not missing anything.
So what made Uwe turn his back on Hollywood? Mr Boll tried (and failed) to fund a sequel to Postal using Kickstarter back in 2013 (he only raised $29,977 of his projected $500,000 goal). Earlier this year he attempted to get funding for a sequel to Rampage (arguably his best film) using IndieGogo. That project only raked in $6,375 of pledge money in two months and obviously they pulled the plug on that. So as one does when failing on IndieGogo, Boll just jumped back to Kickstarter again, this time lowering his goal to $55,794. The Ramage project fell short again on funding, thus inciting this hate fueled message to Hollywood and crowdfunding sites.
Boll continued in a separate video railing against Hollywood. “They’re not all in it. It’s all about the fucking money. They’re fucking assholes and retards.” He even slams J Lo “What is Jennifer Lopez? Like a fucking demanding Mexican bitch, nothing else, who wants to fly with a private airplane, but at the same time she would say, ‘Oh, We have to take care of the environment,’ on a talk show.” Not sure why he’s picking on her, but we’re pretty sure she’s not Mexican. Watch below.
“Fucking kill the rich.” coming from the guy who said he has enough money to play golf for the rest of his days… nice. After those videos, no one in Hollywood will want to associate with him, and not many people will be sad about that. Guess that’s one hell of a way to go out, but we’ve seen someone quit a job with way better panache.
