Perennial games-to-film helmer Uwe Boll is getting set for his next directorial effort, a movie version of Ubisoft's Far Cry. The illustrious Dr. Boll has revealed to IGN that the film will go into production in May 2007.


We expect the game-based flick to mirror the plot of the original Far Cry, centering on a man who finds himself tied to a chair inside an old cargo ship. He is freed by an unseen stranger, and sets out to escape his captors.

Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer (Alone in the Dark) wrote the the script for the film. A rewrite is being done by Art of War screenwriter Wayne Beach.

The film was previously reported to have a budget of around $25 million. Rumor has it that filmmakers were at one time interested in courting The Rock and Naomi Watts for the lead roles. That might seem like a bit of a casting stretch, but in the world of Uwe Boll, anything is possible!
Boll also tells us that he's working on sequels to Alone in the Dark and BloodRayne.

Next up from Boll are In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and Postal.

Well, there's another game series that is going to be insulted by Hollywood. Will there ever be a decent game to movie transition?

I think Hitmans a really good movie - the way it makes references to the games but has its own storyline is great
