Film director Uwe Boll is saying goodbye to Hollywood, or the b-movie equivalent
where he's plied his trade, saying he will no longer be making movies.
has the details that say he's not only done ruining video game
properties, but other scripts as well. Boll states the decline in DVD/Blu-Ray
sales is the reason he can't make money anymore. He says this is because he has
been self-funding his projects. "I never had people giving me money. I’ve been
using my money since 2005 and if I hadn’t made the stupid video game based
movies I would never have amalgamated the capital so I could say, ‘Let’s make
the Darfur movie’," he explains. "I don’t need a Ferrari, I don’t need a yacht.
I invested in my own movies and I lost money." According to
, Boll's five biggest movies grossed a total of $41.2 million worldwide,
so the idea that these allowed him to fund other movies reinforces the
understanding that his projects were in part supported by German tax laws.
