It's the end of an era, a ridiculous one, but an era nonetheless. It's pretty much an amazing feat that Uwe Boll has made it this long -- between critical ravaging, box office stinkers, and the fiery need to physically beat naysayers. Now, well, the big-money reign is over. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Uwe Boll is leaving big-budget pictures behind and will return to low-budget movies after his $70 million movie, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, completely bombed at the box office.

Very luckily for Boll, these aren't the sort of films he wants to do anyway. Boll says: "In the future, I will focus on small films such as (the video game adaptation) Postal or (the Vietnam war drama) Tunnel Rats. These are films that represent my true passion, and they can be done with small budgets." Phew! What a blessing in disguise for him (as well as for us). I mean, if having lots of money to make his movies was his true passion, this new development would really suck. Good thing his last three flicks tanked.

With his passion restored, what's next? There's more than just Postal and Tunnel Rats. He says that he's lined up Zombie Massacre for Boll Massacre #57896.
