Uwe Boll's POSTAL





http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=62899

"The movie will be so politically incorrect and harsh, it's like a mirror to American society, and I don't think the movie will be well received by everybody. For example, Osama Bin Laden will be one of the lead characters - I think that shows the mood of the movie."

So what will Bin Laden's role be, exactly? Well, Boll explains, the idea is that he's holed up in Tucson, Arizona, running a Taliban camp. "That shows a little bit how politically incorrect Postal will be - it's really an underground, alternative point of view. Let's wait and see; I think we will suprise a lot of people."

Boll confirms that Diff'rent Strokes and Postal star Gary Coleman is already signed up to play himself in the film, but he's yet to find a leading man to take on the role of the Postal Dude. One thing's for sure - he'll be going for a comedic actor, "Like a Matthew Lillard, for example, or Ron Perlman," rather than a serious type.

I can't see Sam Jackson getting too excited in being in a Uwe Boll film - "who, Uwe Boll?! - career suicide?, no muthafuckin' way"

That Ron Perlman, what a cut-up.

What's funny in that interview is how Boll claims the Doom director copied stuff out of Alone in the Dark.

I predict this movie will never be made - and if somehow it is made that Gary Coleman will be the biggest name in it.

Postal is one of my favorite game series and if done right it could've been a great cult hit. But unfortunately the butcher of video game films is working on it, and that's a tragedy.

The first contestants of Uwe Boll's boxing match were announced.

I love Boll, he's like that speck of dust in the eye of video game and comic book fans.

At least this time he appears to be *trying* to make something wacky instead of just doing it by accident. And again, he's adapting a game that has little-to-no mainstream name recognition... yet he'll end up alienating that small fanbase the most with the final product.

His role in Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow is widely seen as the best comedic performance since Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator, although some hold the subtle complexity and dry wit of his tour-de-force performance in Ice Pirates in higher regard.
