Uwe Boll Sets his Sights on a Zombie Massacre

4 Comments

I don’t know what it is about videogames that gets German director Uwe Boll so worked up and excited, but the guy has set his sights on yet another videogame-to-movie remake — this time the 1988 game “Zombie Massacre”. So what’s it about? Says GameDaily Biz: “Zombie Massacre is a driving/shooting game for up to four players. The goal is to drive a fully-armed nuclear warhead (that’s stowed in the trunk of their vintage 1950s convertible) into the center of a city overflowing with zombies. After depositing the weapon, players will then have to make it out of the city just as quickly as they entered it before the warhead detonates.”

German producer/director/writer Uwe Boll first made his mark on the video game industry with House of the Dead, an adaptation of Sega’s hit arcade shooter. Now the director has teamed up with game developer 1988 Games to bring their new Wii shooter, Zombie Massacre, to the big screen. Boll said the film, which will likely have a $6 million budget, will shoot in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2009.

“I want to make this movie more creepy than House of the Dead, which was intended to be funny and campy,” said Boll. “I’d like Zombie Massacre to be a harsh zombie movie like 28 Days Later.”

And apparently the producers of the game actually contacted Boll, and not the other way around, to turn the game into a movie. How about THEM apples?

    BOLL ON ZOMBIE MASSACRE AND TO WORK ON NINJA ASSAULT MOVIE.

    Uwe Boll is still making more movies from video games but all his movies turn into failures so now he working on Zombie Massacre and should work on the other video game to go into a film Ninja Assault.
    Ninja Assault is a ninjas shooting demons and Mr Boll could make that movie easy.
    The plot is set in the year 1620 where a evil Shogun Kagai is ambushed by the three ninjas Guren,Gunjo and Aoi.Now Kagai is back from the dead and he has kidnapped Princess Koto and Siann and Kagai wants to make a scarfice to marry them to bring the power of their flesh into his body.
    Guren,Gunjo and Aoi and American merchant Captain Jack Allen to together to fall in battle against the spider demons and to fight Ghan mann,Tenshin,Shadow Kwan and to destroy Kagai at all cost.
    Boll and the crew would make the movie based on the Ninja assault game to make the story and the plot loosely.
    Thank You.
