Uwe Boll wanted to make Rampage 3 because, like many directors, he feels that sometimes a story just needs a new chapter or proper ending. With three days left in the campaign, though, and barely having hit half of their goal, that’s most likely not happening.
Admittedly, I’ve never seen the first two films, but this lovely synopsis provided by Boll — or his people — will help (I think):
The critically acclaimed Rampage trilogy follows the disillusioned Bill Williamson (Brendan Fletcher), as he looks to change the world by ‘reducing’ its population of scumbags, liars, and anyone he disagrees with. He is a man of stern political beliefs, ones that he is more than willing to kill for.
In the first film, Bill went on a rampage in his hometown of Tenderville, Oregon that left 93 people dead. He disappeared soon after, leaving a video that promised he would rise again…
In Rampage: Capital Punishment, Bill took over a TV station in Washington, D.C. Using a hostage camera crew, he let the world witness the carnage. As the police tried to intervene, he detonated explosives hidden within the station, killing everyone inside.
Bill however escaped, and has been waiting, biding his time until now…
Peep the trailer, then we’ll talk:
Meh. I have a feeling that’s how quite a few people felt (minus the 308 rubes — I mean, “backers”) and decided not to throw any money at it. Also, considering this is the third attempt he’s made to raise the funds (that trailer was initially created for Indiegogo), Boll is pissed. In this hilarious 90-second tirade, Boll has some interesting thoughts about those who didn’t back the campaign (“the rest can f*** their mothers”), Kickstarter, and crowdfunding in general.
Note the extra shot fired at Marvel? Ooh…now you gone and done it, Boll. Crix SMASH.
If you want to hear some pure comedy — including how Boll feels about A-list Hollywood (especially George Clooney), restaurant reviews and his own political commentaries on things like the NSA, The Wolf of Wall Street, and America’s prison system — you should subscribe to his YouTube channel. Boll’s tirades will inadvertently put a smile on your face, because the dude’s anger is hilarious.
Perhaps if Boll had handled himself like Ron Perlman in that actor’s desire to make Hellboy III, he would’ve been a tad more successful.
