If ever there was a match made in heaven it is Uwe Boll and Dolph Lundgren. Sure, Boll has directed 27 titles and has lost literally tens of millions of German tax payer dollars, but no one's career has ever really been buried by an appearance in a Boll movie, so things might be okay. Well, except for Tara Reid, but we should be thanking Boll for that one. Putting Lundgren in his flick is great move because it puts a name in the headline that will gain interest, but it’s someone no one will think less of for doing a Uwe Boll movie. Win-win, eh?

The gigantic Expendables star will be taking the lead in Boll’s follow-up to 2007’s In the Name of the King. The first film starred Jason Statham, who seems to have rebounded just fine and even appeared in The Expendables with Dolph, but he didn’t bother mentioning to him that every movie Boll makes is poisonous to those who watch it. In fact, Lundgren seems generally unaware of who or what Uwe Boll is in a recent interview with Screen Junkies:
"Somebody just said he’s the evil genius of directing or something. I guess we’ll see."

Evil genius? I wish I knew as little about Uwe Boll as Dolph Lundgren does. Dolph gave a little back story about what to expect from In The Name Of The King 2:

I play an ex-middle ages war veteran who gets fucked up but he gets pulled into some sort of medieval power struggle, kind of gets a bit of a redemption for all his pains in service. It’s a role I just wanted to [play.] It’s fun to exercise my acting chops once in a while. I’ve got to get ready for Expendables 2.

I’m not sure how he’ll be exercising his acting chops in a film like that, but sure, Dolph, you go for it, buddy. Lundgren doesn’t mention when the film will start shooting but presumably once Boll gets money it’ll take him about 4 days to shoot the whole thing, roughly a day to edit and then a few hours to print the 40 DVDs hipster nerds will buy to have as an ironic space holder on their shelves. Hell, that’s what I’m gonna do.
