We had the pleasure of throwing out some questions to Writer Director Uwe Boll about his new film RAMPAGE: CAPITAL PUNISHMENT which comes to DVD and Blu-Ray August 19th.
LEGLESS CORPSE: The character Bill Williamson, is very intense and his motives in Rampage: Capital Punishment are very politically motivated. Why did you go that route with the story, did some of your own political views merge into the character?
UWE BOLL: Absolutely. Everything that Bill says about politics is my opinion. We all get brainwashed and we don’t live in a democracy.
LC: Brendan Fletcher (as Bill Williamson) had a lot of monologues in the film, which were extremely well written. Is it hard bringing an actor to the level you want during lines and lines of intense dialogue?
UB: This is the reason Brendan has a co-writer credit – he had to work out how to say my long monologue.
LC: This movie is different from most of your other work, which is more action oriented. What made you switch directions and go with a very hard edge political thriller?
UB: I started that turn with ASSAULT ON WALLSTREET and I keep doing it now in Rampage: Capital Punishment. I’m a very political person and I think Hollywood completely ignores the reality around us. They make movies likes 12 YEARS AS A SLAVE and think that is controversial – it’s absurd.
LC: In your career you have gotten a lot of criticism about your films, the video game adaptations mostly, do you see yourself going back to adaptations, or are you content creating your own properties moving forward?
UB: I love making movies about stuff that actually happens around us but I still will also do pure genre films if I get the financing together.
LC: You are one of the busiest film makers working today, so I know you got other projects in works. What can we look forward to next from you?
UB: I have RAMPAGE 3 (the last part it will be) in the works, but also a great thriller named 12 HOURS and a VIKING movie in the works.
