Rumors continue to pick up steam that fanboy unfavorite Uwe Boll is planning a second and possibly third installment in a BloodRayne series of films, which might actually be the second and third signs of the approaching apocalypse. The original film, which was based on a video game (as if the Uwe Boll's name alone didn't tip you off) and starred Kristanna Loken, set off an extremely loud bomb at the box office, then fizzled into oblivion.

The new film would have Rayne fighting vampires in the old west, presumably in an effort to let Boll try and develop a sense of stylish filmmaking. "Dead Noon" ... we can see the posters now. Since the first film cost $25 million to make, and grossed $2.5 million in its opening weekend, is anyone doing the math here? This was a movie so bad they had to give away the BloodRayne 2 video game on the DVD in order to try and generate sales. Not only that, but it's also been panned universally ... and when I say universally, I mean people in other galaxies wrote to tell us how bad this movie was.

As if that isn't enough, Loken and Boll have already finished shooting another video game to movie adaptation, the thrillingly titled In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. No word on where Ben Kingsley stands on this one.
