Uwe Boll Set To Begin Destruction Of Far Cry On June 20th

Cry far, Far Cry...Uwe Boll shall make your death a painful one.

Movie site Gamerflicks has reported that Uwe Boll's next, and hopefully last, film. This time, his target is the relatively new franchise, Far Cry, and he will begin filming on June 20 until August 28. The filming will also take place in a wooded area...a forest, actually. Not a jungle as some publications had suggested when filming was thought to take place in Hawaii. The new locale for the film will be in the northwestern rainforests of Vancouver. Will Jack Carver be able to stop this movie from sucking? Probably not, but if your curious as to what the story will be, read on:

It’s unknown how close the movie will stick to Ubisoft’s game story although the change of location from a tropical environment (the setting of the game) to Vancouver’s coastal rainforest may require some modification to the screen story. The game follows Jack Carver, an ex-Special Forces soldier, who is hired by a journalist named Valerie Constantine to take her to a seemingly remote and unpopulated island in Micronesia. Shortly after arriving on the island Jack is attacked by mercenaries and separated from Val. As he begins tracking his employer across the jungle Jack discover that there are strange mutated creatures also on the island called Trigens, the result of a clandestine experiment involving genetic manipulation. As each step brings him closer to rescuing Val, more clues about the origins of the Trigens and their creators are slowly revealed to Jack.

Hmmm, no. I still think it'll suck. Especially with the involvement of 'veterans' from his past movies like "Shawn Williamson (producer), Mathias Neumann (director of photography) and Tink (production designer) Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer (Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead II)." ...but you never know. What are your thoughts?

Hehehe... this is going to be highly amusing. Since I live in Vancouver, it's always great seeing places that I recognize in everything from the lowliest B-movie to the biggest blockbuster.

Of course, I have a particular fondness for B-movies, but that's mostly because they tend to be a) hilarious, and b) creative in unexpected ways. "Good" filmmakers typically do most things right -- they've clearly been to film school and studied what works -- so you kinda know what to expect, but Boll's a bit less predictable... I mean, he'll probably do some slow-motion fight scene while inappropriate music (eg. cheesy techno) plays in the background followed by totally random flashbacks, but in every movie, he always finds at least one new way to screw up. Best part is, it'll probably be a highly-entertaining mistake, and that alone will make the movie worth downloa^H^H^H^H er... renting.

Mega-suck.

It's too bad, Far Cry is one of the best games of its type out there. I still like playing it, and sometimes daydream about some of the great setpiece firefights I remember from it.
