Financing to be used for vidgame adaptations

Producer-director Uwe Boll has announced that he’s raised $47 million through German film fund Boll KG 4.

The financing will be put toward the production of the vidgame adaptations “Bloodrayne,” from Majesco, and Gas Powered Games’ “Dungeon Siege,” among other productions.

Boll’s “House of the Dead,” based on the Sega videogame, was released by Artisan Entertainment Oct. 10. Boll’s next pic, “Alone in the Dark,” stars Christian Slater and Tara Reid. Based on the Atari game, it is slated for a summer bow.

Boll’s pics are repped by Daniel Sales’ Interactive Film Sales Intl.
