Blizzard Shoots Down Uwe Boll WOW Project

Kotaku reports:

"Uwe Boll likes games. Likes making movies based on games. Likes making movies based on games involving swords, castles and magic. Guy's got a track record. So Uwe Boll making the World of Warcraft movie, it just fits, right? Did for Boll. Didn't for Blizzard." (Industry, PC, World of Warcraft)

I bet they all but laughed in his face, then kicked him to the curb. In fact, I'm shocked they even granted him an audience, to even pitch his movie to them. o_0

World of Warcraft isn't ruining peoples lives, they're ruining them on their own. They just blame WoW for their own incompetence.

lol, you would think blizz out of all people would of jumped at making more money off of WoW. Good for you Blizzard, you can find someone else that garnishes more respect to make this movie.

On a side note, I've lost enough of my life to WoW... no way in hell am I going to watch a raid onscreen and not get epic loot!

At first I thought everyone was being too hard on this guy until I saw Bloodrayne and now I see why people hate him. I loved the game but his movie made no since and had nothing to do with the original story. It is suppose to be about Vampires but some how became a Western. Postal looks like it might be his first movie that some people may like but there is no way he should be able to make a WoW movie. Thumbs down.

Since I am a huge Warcraft fan (strategy, and for a while the MMO), I would have loved to see how much Boll could have screwed it up.

I think that the South Park episode should be the only offical Warcraft spin ^^

Uwe Boll is the skidmark in the underpants of the movie industry.

why not?

after all, he's "the only fcuking genius in the industry" is he not?

There's a word in Blizzard's vocabulary that Uwe Boll has probably never heard, and that word is quality. Blizzard is my favorite gaming company of all time, and the rejection of Uwe Bollsack only helps to solidify this.

I am totally Pro-Boll. Are his movies awful? Hell yeah, but anyone who can s*** on your memories of a game and then tell you that YOU are the idiot, and that he is "the only genius in the whole f**king business" has to have Bolls.

Seriously, there has to be a bottom of the s*** pile in movies. Why not him? At least he has the bravado (ignorance?) to keep going forward despite what his critics say. Good for him.

i wholeheartedly agree with you

Uwe Boll for president

Now this is obvious he's been orchestrating this petition, and bad publicity stunt himself. The fact that he's being so open with this proves it. His movies are always a flop so bad publicity is better than no publicity,
