    Kickstarter, the popular crowdsourcing website, has the been the host of many, many successful projects. From books to movies to games (and even entire game consoles). Naturally, just about everyone and there mother is trying to get on the gravy train before it leaves the station.

    Which brings us to...

    :arrow:The Escapist

    Boll shit.

    Anyway, he goes on to state that the film would star him, actress Jackie Tohn, and "whoever survived part 1." The campaign runs until October 27th, and if successful, would begin shooting in Spring of next year. Uwe is aiming to deliver the final product in August 2014. If you so desire, you can donate here.

    Before you guys go positively postal, I have to admit, I'm digging this. Really, honest. It's clear that Uwe Boll just doesn't give anything resembling a shit, and you know, I can appreciate that. Plus, this is a lot more entertaining if you think of him less as a director and more as a performance artist.

    Bravo, Uwe, bravo!

    Film adaptation of Postal 2.
    Well, that's going to be banned in a ton of countries.

    He'd be more likely to get money on kickstarter to NOT make a movie.

    Over there

    From what I understand, the first Postal movie was a Postal 2 adaptation… So, does that mean that this will be a Postal III adaptation?

    can't forget this

    No way, I can't believe some people actually would actually throw some money into this while knowing how horrible his adaptations were.

    His Far Cry movie wasn't that bad. It just had nothing to do with Far Cry.

    Thank god. When I checked the page I was a little worried, but 7k on his first two days (with free publicity) is pretty god awful. I'm not expecting much to come of this.


    and thus the whole world joined hands and sang...

    Could you imagine a world without Uwe Boll films?

    I imagine someone who would use the word "swag" would also contribute to Uwe Boll making movies.

    I would imagine someone who makes assumptions of people based on a single word thinks a bit too damn high of themselves.

    YES! This is great news to me, actually.

    Now, don't get me wrong - his films are terrible and cringe-worthy... and that's the whole point. Some of them are so bad that they're good - you don't watch them expecting quality cinema, you do the exact opposite. I enjoyed "Postal" and I'm willing to believe that I'll enjoy "Postal 2" even more if it "Kickstarts".

    Unlike most of Uwe Boll's projects which go horribly wrong ("Alone in the Dark", anyone?), "Postal" is supposed to be terrible and outrageous, making Boll the perfect director for it, really. His works are a satire on cinema while the game is a satire on video games - it's a match made in heaven.

    I would imagine someone who makes assumptions about other people's assumptions assumes too much.


    I think it's only satire it it's intentional. It certainly didn't start that way, but he acts now as though that was his plan from the beginning...which it wasn't...

    I'm actually willing to believe that it was a stunt all along, but fair enough. B-Class cinema is dear to my heart, be it born by ineptitude or filmed "B-on-Purpose".
