Uwe Boll Knights Dominic Purcell for In the Name of the King III, Produces the Knights vs. Werewolves Flick Moonrunners

Amazing how a film franchise that began as an earnest attempt to produce a Lord of the Rings-style epic fantasy has turned into a series of films about world-weary killers for hire getting zapped back to medieval times.

Dominic Purcell is the third actor Uwe Boll has recruited to serve In the Name of the King. “Prison Break” and Straw Dogs remake star Purcell replaces Dolph Lundgren’s suicidal soldier of fortune from part two as the latest assassin to experience a life-changing journey to a time of sword & sorcery in desperate need of a hero in Uwe Boll’s In the Name of the King III.

Synopsis:
Hazen Kaine, an American contract killer living in Sofia, Bulgaria, gets more than he bargains for when he enters into a contract with the mob. One last job before he gets out and starts a new life for himself. The targets: the three children of royal billionaire Andon Dupont. Seems simple enough, or so he thought. Hazen apprehends the children, and before he can blink an eye, a simple necklace worn by one of the children sends his life spiraling back to medieval times. Now completely out of his element, Hazen fights for his life as he tries to escape a medieval army and a fierce fire-breathing dragon.

It is here that Hazen learns what is it to be a real man and a true warrior. He must fight alongside these damsels and their people, dodging arrows and fire balls, to reclaim a kingdom that was stolen from them years before.

Not for nothing, I miss the Krug from part one. Can’t we bring back the Krug? And Jason Statham’s boomerang weapon… Remember that boomerang he used repeatedly for the first 20 minutes of the film and then never again? Dominic Purcell as a modern hitman forced to fight orc-like monsters with a boomerang in a medieval kingdom; I’d be all over that.

Expect to see In the Name of the King III sometime next year.

More knightly action will be found in the Uwe Boll-produced crusaders vs. werewolves flick Moonrunners directed by his F/X man Michaël Massias.

Synopsis:
Kingdom of France in the year of the Lord 1210. The Albigensian Crusade puts the south to fire and sword.

Hunted by crusaders, a few heretics take refuge in a vast forest. They do not know yet the beasts roaming these woods are far more deadly than the Soldiers of God. Lost in werewolves’ territory, crusaders and heretics become the preys of these bloody creatures. They have only one choice to survive: Forget their differences and form an alliance to fight the moonrunners.

No word on any casting yet or when we can expect to see Moonrunners, but we’ll keep you posted.

Rest in Peace: Bill Gold, Iconic Movie Poster Designer, Passes Away at 97

Published

Sad news as it’s been confirmed that iconic graphic designer Bill Gold, who was responsible for creating thousands of film posters, has passed away in his Old Greenwich, Connecticut home at 97 years old.

Gold’s career stretched back decades to the early 40’s, where he designed posters for films like Yankee Doodle Dandy, The Big Sleep, and the classic Bogart/Bergman film Casablanca. Over the next several decades, Gold would work with directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, Ridley Scott, Stanley Kubrick, Desmond Davis, Oliver Stone, and many, many more. Some of his most famous works were done for many of Clint Eastwood’s westerns, William Friedkin’s The Exorcist, John Boorman’s Deliverance, Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, and a multitude of posters for the James Bond franchise.

Per THR, Gold is survived by, “…his wife, Susan, son Bob, daughter in-law Joanne, daughter Marcy, grandson Spencer, granddaughter Dylann and her fiancé Justin, great nephew Jaaron and “man’s best friend” Willoughby.”

We send our deepest condolences to his family in this sad time. However, we also send our gratitude for a man whose work fascinated and intrigued countless audiences over more than 70 years. I remember walking through a movie theater’s halls and delighting in looking at movie posters, imagining what their stories could hold. I can only believe that other children over the years looked at Gold’s work and wondered the same thing about those films.

Live-Action F.E.A.R. Adaptation Coming To Machinima

Published

on

Screenwriter Greg Russo has signed a deal with Machinima to pen an adaptation of the F.E.A.R. video game franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The article did not specify whether the adaptation would be in the form of a film or a series.

Russo, who is a lifelong gamer, will work with Machinima on creating and developing the F.E.A.R. adaptation, although we don’t know much else at this point. Machinima are a subsidiary of Warner Bros., and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the F.E.A.R. franchise has also been owned by WB since 2009. In other words, Warner Bros. were bound to give us a live action adaptation of F.E.A.R. at one point, so we’re not too surprised by this development.

Russo, who is also writing the scripts for the Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil reboots, was quoted as saying the following:

“As a lifelong gamer, it’s an absolute honor to partner with Machinima, the preeminent provider of digital content to gamers worldwide. F.E.A.R. holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited to bring my personal passion to this and future projects and can’t wait to see where our partnership goes from here.”

An acronym for First Encounter Assault Recon, the F.E.A.R. games focus on an elite task force who fight to stop Alma Wade, a young girl with incredible psychic powers, from tearing apart the fabric of reality. Legendary film director John Carpenter served as story consultant on the third game, which we awarded a highly positive review back in the day. We’ll bring you more on Machinima’s adaptation when it becomes availalbe.
