Uwe Boll Wiki Biography

Uwe Boll was born on 22 June 1965, in Wermelskirchen, North Rine-Westphalia, ( then)West Germany. He is a screenwriter, producer, and director, best known to have worked various film adaptations of video games; he has also worked on “Rampage”, “Tunnel Rats”, “Postal”, and “Darfur”. All of his efforts have helped put his net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Uwe Boll? As of mid-2016, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $10 million, mostly earned through a successful career in films. He has also written a few books and owns a restaurant. He’s had a career dating back to the early ’90s, and as he continues his work, his wealth is expected to increase.

Uwe studied at the University of Cologne and then the University of Siegen. He earned a doctorate in literature but even prior to his studies, was focused on starting a career on making movies. A few of his first major releases include “Heart of America” and “Blackwoods” which he co-wrote and directed. He then started to earn a reputation for making video games into films, working on projects such as “Far Cry”, “House of the Dead”, “BloodRayne” and Postal”. Other films he’s worked on include “Seed” which included footage of animals being tortured from PETA,and “Auschwitz” which depicted brutal scenes of the concentration camp. He also worked on a short horror film entitled “The Profane Exhibit”, which is about a daughter getting locked in a room with her parents. Regardless, his net worth rose steadily.

It is also known that Boll is working on “Eaters” which is based on the video game “Zombie Masssacre”. He also did a Kickstarter for a sequel to “Postal”, but it was cancelled prematurely. Uwe has also written two books entitled “How One Must Make a Movie in Germany” and “Genus Series and its Genres”.

With most of his films getting poor reception at the box office, a lot of people wondered where the director was getting money to produce his films. In the commentary of “Alone in the Dark”, he explains that he finances his films using a tax shelter fund that essentially earns him back half of the money he used to make films. Because of this, a lot of people have seen him in a negative light – a few of his films would be listed as the worst films ever made. He even made a bid to direct the “Warcraft” film, one that Blizzard turned away from since they knew about his reputation on video games. Despite that, he has still had a bit of successes with his other films, such as “Darfur” and the films prior to “House of the Dead”.

For his personal life, it is known that Boll married Natalia Boll in 2014, and they have a child. Uwe is well known for confronting critics and even making derogatory comments against them; he’s published a lot of negative comments against critics, video game companies, and other personalities. He has even taunted big names such as Eli Roth, Michael Bay, and George Clooney, to which Michael Bay responded that he didn’t even know the guy until he ranted on YouTube.

1I do not play video games at all.
2[on Hollywood] That is the most bullsh*t business with bullsh*t idiots, one after the other lined up behind each other. You know, they are all fu*king each other in the asses and nobody makes any decisions. All the actors I ever worked with, Ben Kingsley, whatever, are fu*king pussies, nothing else! They are in the as*holes of their managers, agents and publicists and attorneys...[June 2015]
3Maybe you know it, but it's not so easy to finance movies in total. The reason I am able to do these kind of movies is I have a tax shelter fund in Germany, and if you invest in a movie in Germany you get basically 50% back from the government.
4The German press is not friendly to me. I can compare it to the US press. I had 25% really bad reviews, like, "Oh, a Boll movie. Typical trash." But some said it was "by far Boll's best movie." They compared it to, not The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), but something weaker like Eragon (2006).
5I want to make good movies. Of course, I want to make entertaining movies for the younger audience, and this is a lot of times not working with film critics who are more into drama or art-house movies. But on the other hand, I always try to make solid movies.
6[asked about how game developers are involved in the making of Postal (2007)] Yeah, they were very involved, this time too much involved, I wrote the script, it's their baby. They liked the treatment, but they didn't like the approach of some stuff, they thought it was too funny, but I said the only way to tell a story like "Postal" is to do it funny, let people laugh. I don't want a movie like Taxi Driver (1976) where a guy is killing everybody, too many movies like that. "Postal" is a movie where everybody is running amok, everyone has good reasons to run amok from the welfare office guy to the police officer. Coming up in two to three weeks, they will be really happy, like our cast . . . I think it will be hilarious.
7[on fighting--and winning--against all of his critics in a boxing ring] You see what happens when people get hit in the head? They like my movies!
8[about what he learned from his disastrous experience with Alone in the Dark (2005)] That a script matters.
9[about his favorite book, Gustavus Myers' "The History of American Fortunes"] If you follow the money, like the writer did - the history of the Rockefellers and so on - you find out about real history. In that book you learn that the Civil War was not about freeing the slaves, it was all about the money, etc.
1Worked together with Academy Award winners Ben Kingsley and J.K. Simmons, Academy Award nominees Burt Reynolds and Eric Roberts, and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss.
2An admirer of Michael Haneke's films and the early work of Oliver Stone.
3Is a fan of District 9 (2009).
4[2010] Empire Magazine's 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever' includes 2 films by Uwe Boll: House of the Dead (2003) (Nr.35) and Alone in the Dark (2005) (Nr. 21). Boll is the only director with 2 films on the list.
5Considered fighting comedian Ron Sparks when he challenged critics to a boxing match during the filming of Postal (2007) but ultimately declined because of Sparks' age, height and weight advantage - and due to the fact he'd be fighting several challengers back-to-back. Boll ultimately defeated every opponent in the Vancouver matches, which can be seen in the Raging Boll (2010) documentary.
6Lists The Searchers (1956), Taxi Driver (1976), Apocalypse Now (1979), Citizen Kane (1941), A Clockwork Orange (1971), and Breaking the Waves (1996) as some of his favorite films.
7Cites the Trevor Howard / Marlon Brando version of Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) as the film that made him want to be a movie director.
8Despite several Razzie Award nominations, including one "win" for Worst Director, not one of the films he has directed has been awarded the Razzie for Worst Picture.
9Planned on making a film based on long running Sega franchise Wonder Boy, with a script by Robin Morningstar. Intentions moved so far along that Caitlin Stasey from Aussie soap Neighbours was attached to a part. When Sega decided to leave the character for all intents and purposes dead, the project collapsed, and was featured as the main news story in issue 51 of Retro Gamer Magazine.
10Has worked with Robin Morningstar on a proposed film of Konami property Contra, which either has resulted in the mock Uwe Boll's Contra trailer by fans on the internet, or the fanbase was unknowingly ironic in its timing.
11Cites Apocalypse Now (1979) as his favorite movie.
12Was a film critic for a local radio station in the late 1980s.
13Challenged his critics in June 2006 to a "put up or shut up" boxing match. His production company issued a press release stating that Boll would challenge his 5 harshest critics each to a 10-round boxing match. To be eligible, the critic must have written two extremely negative reviews of Boll, in print or on the Web, in 2005. The fights are documented in the film Raging Boll (2010). Boll knocked out all opponents.
14He is good friends with Clint Howard and cast him in Blackwoods (2001), Heart of America (2002), and House of the Dead (2003). He is also good friends with Dominic Purcell and Michael Paré. Paré is in over 15 Boll films.
15His favorite film of 2005 was Sin City (2005). His favorite film of 2012 was Django Unchained (2012). His favorite film of 2013 was The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
