UWE BOLL ALONE IN THE DARK
Insomniac mania sent this excerpt from an interview with Alone in the Dark director Uwe Boll. In the adaptation of Infogrames' popular videogame franchise, Christian Slater stars as supernatural detective Edward Carnby and Tara Reid plays Aline Cedrac. The film is targeting a Fall 2004 release date.
'Zee Zack - So what will the main character be more like, is it the old-fashioned detective seen in parts 1-3, or the bad guy seen in 'The New Nightmare'? Or are you going to do like a mixture?
Uwe - No. It's more the old fashioned detective and what I actually like is because there is a not a lot of movies in the last years that you have really basically..a normal guy, as the hero.
Uwe - Yes, sarcastic humour. There is for example a scene in the movie in an airplane where a young boy says to Slater like er 'I think there's a monster in my closet, but my mother said I shouldn't be afraid' etc and Slater tells him like 'Your mother is wrong, yeah you should be afraid of the dark.' So anyway he is really scaring him to death. Yeah so this is the kind of the sarcastic humour in the movie, but in total the movie is, I would say from the tone. It's very dark and it's very disturbing also.
Zee Zack - Do you feel that many films have too many or too little twists in them, will Alone in the Dark have a twist and are you planning to make sequels, or perhaps even a trilogy?
Uwe - Exactly, Alone in the Dark has a lot of twists, but we're not using it like the twist is there because we only have to do a twist, yeah, the appeal for Alone In the Dark from the beginning was that like we need 3 films to tell the whole story so it's not like Matrix where the first movie was it, and then they made the second one and the third one because of the success of the first one. In our case I think it is so you need the second and the third movie to understand completely what is going on.'
Two more films to come after this one? Sounds interesting.
