Uwe Boll sues Billy Zane


Recommended Posts

Director Uwe Boll has sued actor Billy Zane in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming he's owed at least $700,000 in revenues from the 2006 boxoffice flop "Bloodrayne."

Boll claims in the April 30 filing that Zane was the one who suggested Romar Entertainment handle distribution of the film. Zane and Romar principal James Schramm allegedly promised the film would open in 2,000 theaters and that a $10 million advance from Boll would be used for advertising and promotion. But at least $900,000 was paid out to Zane and Schramm and the movie opened in only 950 theaters, Boll claims.

The film's budget was $25 million and brought in just under $4 million at the worldwide boxoffice.


That wacky man needs his own sitcom. Maybe an updated Odd Couple starring him and Jack Thompson.
