Uwe Boll seems to be attacking the idea of video game adaptations with a relentless furvor, with BloodRayne already in the bag he has now set his cast for Dungeon Siege, which begins filming Sunday in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The film follows the journey of Farmer (Statham) from simple family man to heroic prince. Amidst a fantasy backdrop of war in the Kingdom of Ehb between the evil Gallian and the ruling King Konreid, Farmer sets out to find his kidnapped wife, Solana, and avenge the death of his son, who was killed by animal warriors called Krugs.
Sobieski will be playing Muriella, daughter of the court sorcerer Merrick, who will be played by Rhys Davies. Perlman is Norick, Farmer’s friend, Lillard is Duke Fallow, Reynolds is King Konreid and Loken is Elora, an enchanted tree-like creature whose support proves critical to Farmer.
The film is based on not only the first installment of the popular video game created by Gas Powered Games and published by Microsoft Game Studios, but it will also feature elements of “Dungeon Siege II,” set for release on August 16th. Boll also added, “Gas Powered Games is so excited about the film script that they want to do an expansion pack or full game based on the film.”
Along with the video game adaptation BloodRayne, expected around January 2006, Boll is also adapting the video games “Far Cry,” “Hunter: The Reckoning” and “Fear Effect” for the big screen.
