Uwe Boll launches Kickstarter for Postal 2 film

A "controversial comedy" to deal with "current political issues".

Lifetime Razzie award winner Uwe Boll wants $500,000 to fund a Postal 2 movie.

The film's Kickstarter campaign will run for two months. If successful, Boll will write, produce and direct the project by himself.

"Postal 2 will be a controversial comedy in which we take up current political issues," he describes. "We take the biggest scandals of our democracy, like the happenings about Julian Assange and Edward Snowdon and show that there is no difference between our democracy and the prison camps in Russia or China."

Boll's widely-panned film version of the first Postal appeared back in 2007, the same year as his second BloodRayne flick.

The director has helmed two Alone in the Dark movie conversions, as well as big screen attempts at the Far Cry and House of the Dead franchises. A third chapter in his BloodRayne series was released in 2010.

"Help us to to make this campaign possible," Boll concluded. "This movie is important and nobody besides Uwe Boll got the balls to make it."

At the time of writing, 66 backers have pledged $2601. 59 days remain.
