Just recently, we had the opportunity to sit down with Far Cry 2 developers Creative Director, Clint Hocking and Producer, LP Pharand of Ubisoft Montreal.
Now we all know that Uwe Boll has already made a Far Cry movie based on the first game and although it is yet to be released in a country other than Germany, we don’t really need to think too hard to realize that it will probably be a stinky pile of donkey dung. Well, that’s if Uwe Boll’s track record is anything to go by.
So what do the Far Cry 2 developers think of Uwe Boll and do they think that the movie may drag their upcoming release down with it?

So my question to the developers was the following:
What do you think about the upcoming Far Cry movie and do you think that with Uwe Bolls track record, the movie may damage the refreshed brand that has been created for Far Cry 2.
LP Pharand explained to me that the rights to the movie were bought by Uwe Boll’s company long before Ubisoft had bought the rights for the game from Crytek, which means that they and Ubisoft actually had nothing do with it.
That doesn’t mean that it won’t hurt the brand though does it.
The developers were very confident and stated clearly that they are proud of what they have created with Far Cry 2 and don’t think that the movie could negatively affect the sequel, which is very different to the original in terms of locations and story.
So are they against the idea of a Far Cry movie, or even possibly a movie for Far Cry 2? LP Pharand, had the following to say:
“We aren’t against the idea of a Far Cry movie, we are against the idea of Uwe Boll making a Far Cry movie.”
There you have it ladies and gentlemen and I don’t blame him for saying that at all. Uwe Boll has terrorized the movie industry for quite some time now and has yet to make a movie that could even be considered anything other than laughable.
