If ever there was a movie that did not require a follow-up, it would be Uwe Boll's disastrous Alone in the Dark. Uwe Boll only produced this time around, allowing the makers of the direct-to-dvd House of the Dead 2, Peter Scheerer and Michael Roesch, to write and direct this second installment of the Alone in the Dark franchise that continues its grand tradition of gobbledygook storytelling.
An evil centuries old spectral witch lurks inside a lab?
Gone are Slater, Tara Reid, and Stephen Dorff, but what a cast they still managed to wrangle for this name-only sequel about a team of witch hunters battling it out with a wicked witch while fighting over a cursed dagger: Rick Yune, Bill Moseley, »
See the trailer for "Far Cry," starring Til Schwiger, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Natalie Aveon, Michael Paré, Craig Fairbrass, Udo Kier, Mike Dopud, Carrie Genzel, Anthony Bourdain, Ralf Moeller, Michael Teigen, D. Harlan Cutshall and Scott Cooper. Uwe Boll ("Bloodrayne," "In the Name of the King," "Alone in the Dark," "Postal") directs from the writing by Masaji Takei, Peter Scheerer and Michael Roesch.

Fango recently caught up with actor Rick Yune, best-known for his roles in such blockbuster action fare as The Fast And The Furious and Die Another Day and more recently seen in such low-budget efforts as The Fifth Commandment (which he also wrote and produced) and the creature-feature sequel Alone In The Dark II (pictured, and reviewed here). Considering that the latter’s producer Uwe Boll is turning Bloodrayne into a trilogy, it goes without saying that a third Alone is almost certainly guaranteed.
Even so, the Korean-born Yune, who replaced original star Christian Slater in the second installment, reveals that he will not reprise the role in any further follow-ups. “I have heard that they want to continue the Alone In The Dark series,” he tells Fango. “But I definitely will not be going back to play Edward Carnby again.
