Often dubbed the “most hated director of all time” , Uwe Boll is notorious for not mincing his words. That doesn’t make his films any better either, but it regularly makes for downright legendary audio commentaries. Back in 2017, the director, who is responsible for a whole slab of the worst video game adaptations of all time (including » Alone In The Dark » and » House Of The Dead «), also published an autobiography. At one point, «You can fuck me!» also deals with the shooting of his «Dungeon Siege» sequel » Swords of the King 2 — Two Worlds «.

In doing so, Uwe Boll, in his usual manner, also lashes out at his main actor Dolph Lundgren , who allegedly not only needed a stunt double in classic action scenes, but even for the race. Of course, it was a good idea to ask when our author Lutz Granert talked to the » The Expendables » star via zoom about his new film » Castle Falls «. When asked about the accusations from Boll’s autobiography, Lundgren explained the situation at the time as follows:
Dolph Lundgren: “I’ve had a 40-year career as a martial arts fighter – not only in movies but also in tournaments. As a result, I sustained hip damage. Both of my hip joints were replaced just prior to filming. I was in so much pain that I couldn’t sit up on a flight from LA to Vancouver and was in 1st class the entire time. I guess that’s why I had a double for running — but I did one night fight scene myself. But do you know: Uwe is Uwe. I still remember him checking stock prices on his smartphone while filming a dramatic scene. He had no interest in directing or talking to the actors.»
FILM STARTS: How do you personally feel about him?
Dolph Lundgren: He’s a guy who has a lot of issues that maybe should be addressed in a therapy session.»
This is Castle Falls
In Castle Falls, Dolph Lundgren not only co-stars alongside his Expendables 2 and Day Of Reckoning co-star Scott Adkins, he also directed the film himself. In Germany, «Castle Falls» will be released on DVD & Blu-ray on May 26, 2022 — and even a week before (i.e. on May 19) as VoD:
