Uwe Boll wants you to fund his next film

Got £30 burning a hole in your pocket?

The credit crunch is affecting everyone it would seem – how else do you explain Uwe Boll turning to us mere mortals for financial aid.

 

Yes, yes, hold back the jokes about “it’s because his movies usually suck and no one wants to fund them”… He’s serious.

 

With the German tax loopholes he’s been using to bring the world BloodRayne and Alone In The Dark now closed to him, he’s offering people the chance to contribute to his new terrorist thriller, Blackout.

 

If you click along to the movie’s official site here – you can sign up to donate £30 towards the budget.

 

He needs $18.5 million, and if you help him get there, he promises you a limited edition DVD and a various prizes, including up to $50,000 in cash (shouldn't he, er, be spending that on the movie?) and chance to win a visit to the set.

 

Get there before 31st March, or the site will be shut. Oh, and if he doesn’t get the whole amount he’ll either try to work with a lower budget or – and this is where we consider calling Watchdog – he says he’ll return at least £28 of your hard-earned folding stuff.

 

So what are you waiting for? You don’t need food or electricity… You need another Uwe Boll film in your life.

 

Anyone? Anyone?

It will probably go straight to DVD or Zone Horror anyway!

I am amazed he is trying this as like Icon said the flaw is he has no fans :lol

 

That said is I had the cash I may have actually donated to the film, just so I could say I had a part to play in what will no doubt be one of the worst movies ever made :P
