Retired German filmmaker Uwe Boll is going on a rampage over Warner Bros. Pictures’ new sci-fi monster flick “Rampage”.
“Rampage” stars heavy hitters like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Joe Manganiello, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and former UFC fighter Urijah Faber.
But Boll, who is known for adapting video games for movies, is demanding the upcoming film change its name. After all, Boll released a trilogy of “Rampage” movies from 2009 to 2016.
“We are living now in a world where Independent Movies are dead and the big players only are making all the money,” the German filmmaker said in a statement published by Deadline. “That they then use developed brands and ideas from established series such as my ‘Rampage’ films in order to make even more money is unfair but typical.”
“The new ‘Rampage’ movie will shrink my brand and my revenues I can make in the future with my ‘Rampage’ movies,” he explained. “It also confuses the audience! I want that[sic] Warner Bros. change the title, especially because the new movie has nothing to do with a ‘Rampage’.”
The director also took shots at the upcoming movie, saying it “looks more like ‘Jumanji 2’ and is one of those typical feelgood, popcorn bulls**t movies that the studios use to brainwash America even more!”
“All these kind of movies including ‘Transformers’, ‘Avengers’ are helping the military industrial complex in America to win and have r***rds like Trump be American President who would say that the earth is flat as soon they think they can benefit from this!” he concluded.
Johnson’s upcoming “Rampage” movie busts into theatres on April 13.
