GameDaily.biz reports Uwe Boll is working on a new movie based on the video game Far Cry. The filming is expected to be ready by August 4:
Boll is filming the movie on several islands around Vancouver, British Columbia. He had originally had his sights set on Hawaii and Florida, but ultimately decided to stay in Vancouver, where he has filmed the majority of his movies.
Boll has cast German actor Til Schweiger (Tomb Raider 2, King Arthur) in the lead role of ex-special forces operative Jack Carver. Emanuelle Vaugier (CSI: NY), who gamers know from her role in Need for Speed: Carbon, plays reporter Valerie Cardinal. Craig Fairbass (White Noise 2) assumes the role of Parker and Udo Kier (Grindhouse, BloodRayne) brings the evil Dr. Krieger to life.
Boll has also cast Natalia Avelon, Ralf Moller, Michael Pare, Michael Eklund, Don Davis, Jay Brazeau and Chris Coppula in the film. Boll said the script will follow the plot of the first video game, which sends Jack and Valerie to a mysterious island that's home to the Kreiger Corporation and its genetic experiments.
