Uwe Boll to make Trek XII

Say you saw this news. How would you react that this monumental hack is making a Trek movie?

(Why did I put this threadin this forum, mostly because Boll's movies fall under this catagory and this thread is more about him than Trek XII.)

I don't know who the hell Uwe Boll is, nor why I should care what he directs. What's the big deal about this guy anyway?

Point taken, but Trek XII still seems to be just as vital part of the subject. Hence, off to Future of Trek.

He doesn't know how to direct or cast or tell a story and thinks he's one of the elite filmmakers around (and beating up his internet critics in the boxing ring proves his directing talents). But other than that he's great.

Posted by Michael Bay
"I never even heard his name till last week when he made threats and rants. The guy is a fucking idiot, making threats to me, Clooney, Eli Roth, says he has a doctorate—but uses the word 'retard' in his vocabulary, come on. When you look at his videos, what is interesting are the backgrounds. I guess his low rent offices, with 15 year old 3/4 machines, archaic computers, this is just some dumb chump trying to get some fame when he has none, so he has to make Youtube lame quality anger rants. Guy just want attention because he can't get any for the so called movies he makes. Nothing sadder when he had his screening in LA to an over half empty movie house."
Boll is a twat.

^ I have a new respect for Michael Bay. First he puts Megan Fox in her place, and now this.

Also, Michael Bay isn't calling for the release of Roman Polanski. As far as I know, anyway.

With a 150 million budget, he can't do any worse than Abrams.

Good thing you like to make comments that make every other comment seem that much stronger and valid.

Re: Uwe Boll to make Trek XII

Remember how Paul Sams of Blizzard blew off Uwe Boll when he offered to direct a WoW movie? "We will not sell the movie rights, not to you...especially not to you!"

I would expect Paramount to give him an even harsher answer.

Speaking of which, why the hell do production companies hire this guy at all? Isn't his name by itself a definitive guarantee for a movie's failure?

Re: Uwe Boll to make Trek XII

Uwe Boll films are horrible, the only reason I know about him is because at "That Guy With The Glasses" website his films are often the subject of ridicule and justifiably so he really is a hack!
