Uwe Boll Being Sued for $1 Million by His "In the Name of the King 2" Producer

Posted: March 31st, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Uwe Boll Being Sued for $1 Million by His "In the Name of the King 2" ProducerSubmit Comment
Producer Rob Van Ronkel has filed a lawsuit for $1 million against director Uwe Boll for misspelling his name in the credits for "In the Name of the King: Two Worlds." Van Ronkel claims the misspelling was not an accident.

Everything started after Van Ronkel convinced Dolph Lundgren to star in the film. Soon after, he was arguing with Boll over his producer's fee. Eventually his credit was stripped completely before a compromise was worked out whereby Van Ronkel go an associated producer credit.

But the producer says that Boll kept a grudge and took his anger out by by spelling his name "Rob Van Runkel" on the film's end titles, which then was also misspelled on IMDB. His name was also missing from the DVD box and marketing materials.

Let us rejoice with this news: hopefully Uwe Boll will be broke after this or this will have a definitive bad publicity that no one will give him any money.

There is always the bright side of life, ta ra, ta ra ta ta...

Haha, in sweden "Runk" means jacking off. But I guess that was not the intention and noone else finds it funny.

runkel is short for the german word furunkel(GIS it)

I'd be glad if my name was spelled wrong in the credits of a uwe boll movie.

So what? If Uwe Boll misspelled a producer's name wrong.

What about all the video games that turned into movies which he destoryed.

I hope Uwe Boll never directs a movie again after this.

So a 'u' instead of an 'o' is worth a million, but the film isn't worth a fifth of that? Am I missing something? Because the title was only released to disc, and hasn't made sh*t in sales.

She will be suing our goverment next, As it was their advice to maybe store a little fuel if our tanker drivers decide to strike !!

Which couldn't happen for at least 10 days anyway, It's gone crazy here the past 5 days or so.

Forgive me when I say this, but you Brits have more government than you can handle, and yeah, she'll sue. Probably win too.

Yeah we have way to many chiefs, but not enough Indians (metaphorically of course we have a sh*t load of indians here) so to speak ..

Questions for the producer:

Who are you and did you have to pass a psyche evaluation before you gave that God-awful f*cking excuse of a director one penny for his sequel ?


Are you retarded ? Great Persuader, is that you ?

Why do you bother suing Uwe ? You oughta be suing him for putting out sh*t ... wait, you might wind up in a boxing match with the ugly German f*cker.

You're better off suing Michael Bay. At least he know's his work is sh*t.

And the consolation prize for Dumb f*cker of the Year (aka The Ryan Dunn Award) goes too ... *drum roll* .... Rob Van Ronkel !

Rob! C'mon up and get a kick in the pants, ya arsehole!
Max Rockatansky Junior writes:
on March 31st, 2012 at 9:07:24 PM

Rob has about as much luck recooping his money as he does in producing a buddy cop movie with Gary Coleman and Ryan Dunn called Cop Out 2: Kevin Smith's sh*tsequel.

Also, does this guy even own a million dollars?...

He should be PAYING Boll a million dollars to NOT have his name associated with this pile of crap on IMDB. Obviously this Runkel is some sort of magician or wizard if he was able to convince Lundgren to star in this flop. Just go spin some hay into gold and let Boll continue making these terribly awful films so the world has someone to laugh at besides our governments.
