Back in February Uwe Boll revealed to Eurogamer.net that he hoped to give his many critics a chance to appear in his next videogame adaptation, Postal: "I'm in the movie - Uwe Boll will play a minor part. I get killed by my 'Boll haters'." He also stated that he'd be happy for the Boll haters to play themselves.
It turns out Boll is a man of his words. In a press release titled "Uwe Boll challenges his critics to 'Put up or shut up!'", Boll states: "I'm fed up with people slamming my films on the Internet without see[ing] them. Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand Internet voices. Half of those opinions come from people who've never watched my films."
Boll now challenge his critics to a fight - as in, an actual, physical fight.
"Towards the end of the filming of Postal the five most outspoken critics will be flown into Vancouver and supplied with hotel rooms," the press release states.
"As a guest of Uwe Boll they will be given the chance to be an extra/stand-in in Postal and have the opportunity to put on boxing gloves and enter a BOXING RING to fight Uwe Boll.
"Each critic will have the opportunity to bring down Uwe in a 10-bout match. There will be five matches planned over the last two days of the movie. Certain scenes from these boxing matches will become part of the Postal movie. All five fights will be televised on the Internet and will be covered by international press."
However there are a few rules for entry: first of all, you must be a man weighing between 140 and 190 pounds (63.5 kg - 86 kg). Secondly, you must have "posted on the Internet or have written in magazines/newspapers at least two extremely negative articles in the year 2005."
