‘Rampage’ Director Goes on Rampage After Failed Kickstarter (Watch NSFW Video)

'Rampage' Director Goes on Rampage After Failed Kickstarter (Watch NSFW Video)

He’s directed movies such as “BloodRayne,” “Alone in the Dark,” “Postal” and “Far Cry,” but at this point, German director Uwe Boll will be best known for his latest productions: YouTube videos in which he slams Hollywood and freaks out about his failed crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for “Rampage 3,” the third in the “Rampage” series.

With three days left to go, Boll’s campaign has raised just over $26,000 of its $55,794 goal.

Frustrated with the tepid response, the filmmaker told movie fans to “fuck yourselves.” He also lashed out at Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey, Jr. who, he said, are “laughing” at low-income families who shell out money to see “Marvels Avengers bullshit dirt.”

This campaign is Boll’s third failed attempt to reach his target goal for the film on a crowdfunding site.

Referring to Kickstarter, he said, “What retarded amateur idiots collecting money on that website. For me, crowdfunding is absolutely dead.” But don’t worry about Boll. He said he’s got “enough money to play golf until I’m dead.”

Ironically, his rant may help drive potential backers to his campaign, but regardless, it’s unlikely he’ll reach his goal at this point.
