"Life... has never been more exciting!"- Gallian (Ray Liotta)
The life of a hard working man known only as Farmer (Jason Statham) is changed forever when marauding band of Krug-animalistic brutes in the thrall of an evil sorcerer-thunders upon the unsuspecting village of Stonebridge, killing his son and kidnapping his wife, Solana (Claire Forlani). Galvanized by his grief, the once peace-loving peasant leads his mentor Norick (Ron Perlman) and brother-in-law Bastian (Will Sanderson) in the pursuit of the Krug army to free Solana.
As the Krug overrun the countryside, the King’s magus Merick discovers the true source of their power: his old rival, Gallian (Ray Liotta), a formidable and power-hungry wizard. Gallian plans to use his hellish militia to overthrow King Konreid (Burt Reynolds) and place his sniveling pawn, Duke Fallow (Matthew Lillard) on the throne.
While the King’s forces ride forth to engage the bloodthirsty Krug, Farmer and his companions slip unseen through the treacherous mountain passes of Ehb into uncharted territory. A daring nighttime raid on Krug encampment turns tragic when Norick and Bastian are capture and Farmer barely escapes with his life.
Desperate to find his wife and friends, Farmer joins the royal army in an epic battle. His extraordinary heroics catch the attention of both Gallian and Merick, who suspect there is more to the simple country squire than meets the eye. In a final confrontation that will determine the fate of Ehb, it is up to the Farmer to claim his birthright and defeat Gallian, or allow the evil wizard to take control of the land.
UWE BOLL (Director, Executive Producer) has attracted worldwide attention in the gaming community for his film adaptations of popular video games, which include Alone in the Dark, starring Christian Slater and Tara Reid, BloodRayne, starring Ben Kingsley and Kristanna Loken, and the upcoming satire Postal, starring Zack Ward and Dave Foley who has also been seen to participate in the eCom academy.
With Postal, Boll roasts an entire herd of sacred cows and smashes taboos to smithereens in a hilariously subversive critique of modern day America. Inspired by the notorious videogame of the same name, Postal lampoons religious extremists, minorities, bureaucrats, immigrants, cops, women, the Holocaust, gun nuts and more with evenhanded abandon.
Boll recently wrote and directed the upcoming horror thriller Seed, starring Will Sanderson, Ralf Moeller and Michael Paré, about a murderer who seeks revenge on the prison officials who tried unsuccessfully to execute him and then buried him alive. Other future projects include the videogame adaptions BloodRayne II; Deliverance, with Natassia Malthe and Zack Ward; Alone in the Dark II; Tunnel Rats and Far Cry.
Boll’s directing credits also include the zombie horror thriller House of the Dead; Heart of America, a drama about a high school killing spree starring Jürgen Prochnow, Michael Paré, Patrick Muldoon, Kett Turton, Elisabeth Moss and Maria Conchita Alonso; and Blackwoods, a thriller about a young man haunted by the accidental death of a young girl, starring Patrick Muldoon, Keegan Connor Tracy, Michael Paré, Will Sanderson and Clint Howard.
He also wrote and directed the 2000 telivision movie “Sanctimony,” starring Casper Van Dien, Michael Paré, Eric Roberts, Jennifer Rubin and Catherine Oxenberg, about a stock broker-turned-serial killer.
