  • Quotes

    • Uwe (when asked what he learned from his experience with Alone in the Dark): That a script matters.

    • Uwe: Fans are always totally flipping out and I understand that the fan of a video game has his own agenda in his head and has his ideas about what is a good movie and what is a bad movie.

    • Uwe: Maybe you know it but it's not so easy to finance movies in total. And the reason I am able to do these kind of movies is I have a tax shelter fund in Germany, and if you invest in a movie in Germany you get basically fifty percent back from the Government.
