After the disappointing Doom, I'm not ready to see another video game based film but ambitious director, Uwe Boll says his next project, an adaptation of the fantasy adventure game Dungeon Siege, is "a huge epic adventure." It's so huge, in fact, that it's being released in two parts. Boll will, according to the Hollywood Reporter, personally release the picture through his newly-formed distribution company, Event Film.

He reveals that the first installment of the $60 million film will hit theaters on November 3rd, with the conclusion to follow on December 1st. Boll says the decision to split the nearly 4 1/2 hour long movie in half was made to "support the exhibitors who can't accept a movie so long."

The film, now officially called In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, stars Jason Statham as Farmer, a common man who sets out on a mission to save his wife and child when they're taken by an evil army rampaging across the land, determined to conquer the mighty Castle Ehb, and destroy the King.

The film's vast and eclectic cast includes Ray Liotta, Leelee Sobieski, Burt Reynolds, Ron Perlman, Claire Forlani, Matthew Lillard, John Rhys-Davies, Kristanna Loken, Will Sanderson, Brian J. White and German supermodel Eva Padberg.

Dungeon Siege was one of my favorite RPG's to come out for the PC. I played it for quite a while before realizing that I was immensely enjoying a Microsoft game. It was a shocker.

I haven't seen Doom yet, but your opinion seems to be the norm. Most people did not enjoy the film. I haven't seen too many video games turned into film that were really that great. Final Fantasy was good because of the incredible animation and Resident Evil was decent, but that is about it.

I was looking into this film and it seems that no one was very happy to hear that it was being directed by Uwe Boll...

Enjoy.
