Ray Liotta will play the villain, Gallian, in director Uwe Boll’s video game adaptation, Dungeon Siege. He joins Jason Statham, John Rhys-Davies, Matthew Lillard, Leelee Sobieski, Burt Reynolds, Ron Perlman and Kristinna Loken in the film.
The Hollywood Reporter says Will Sanderson, former NFL star Brian J. White and German supermodel Eva Padberg have joined the cast as well.
Dungeon Siege, which is based on Gas Powered Games’ million-selling PC game franchise, is filming in and around Vancouver through October 11. The $60 million fantasy film is expected to run three hours.
“The story starts in the same way that the first game begins,” producer Shawn Williamson of Brightlight Pictures said. “A peaceful town is attacked by the evil krugs, and a reluctant hero emerges to assist in the defeat of the creatures. He is joined by others along the journey.”
Dungeon Siege II ships for PC from Microsoft Games Studio on August 16. Boll expects the movie to be ready for distribution by late-summer 2006.
