Uwe Boll, the auteur who gave us House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, has taken to Kickstarter to fund his latest masterpiece -- Postal 2.

So what is the movie about? Here's the plot outline from the Kickstarter page:

Postal 2 will be a controversial comedy in which we take up current political issues. We take the biggest scandals of our democracy, like the happenings about Julien Assange and Edward Snowdon [SIC] and show that there is no difference between our democracy and the prison camps in Russia or China. We show that through this massive monitoring our communication data is not safe anymore! We want to make a movie which is totally uncensored, pointed against everything and everybody, against every political party and every religion. There will be no survivors.

The script is expected to be completed this fall and production is planned for spring 2014. The completed film will be released sometime in August 2014.

The goal is to raise $500,000, and, as of this writing, there are already 164 backers pledging $7,231. The Kickstarter ends on October 27, 2013. By the way, what happened to those German tax breaks which allowed Boll to make his previous movies?
