Uwe Boll Announces Return to Feature Films After 5 Year Absence


Uwe Boll

Uwe Boll, the often controversial and divisive filmmaker plans to return after a 5 year hiatus. His latest project FIRST SHIFT is a crime drama that follows a NYC police officer and his rookie partner Angela over the course of a 12-hour shift. Gino Anthony Pesi (Shades of Blue, Ambitions) and Kristen Renton (Sons of Anarchy, Days of Our Lives) have been cast in the central roles. Additional cast includes Onye Eme-Akwari (Outer Banks), Willie C. Carpenter (Men in Black), Garry Pastore (THE IRISHMAN), and Cate Bottiglione (Law & Order: Organized Crime). FIRST SHIFT is currently in pre-production, with filming beginning this Spring in New York. 

FIRST SHIFT aims to be a gripping tale that captures the essence of life as a cop in one of America's busiest cities. Examining everything from the mundane to the dangerous, Boll hopes viewers will experience an intense day in the life of law enforcement officers.

This is an interesting concept that plays to Bolls strengths as a filmmaker. I'll be keeping this one on my radar and checking back to see how turns out.

“It was important for me to show both sides of the coin – the exhilarating moments as well as those that can be quite heartbreaking”, shared Uwe Boll on his latest film. “Showing the audience the difficulties of forming strong relationships, while enduring stressful experiences, this film expresses the realities that can occur. I’m looking forward to getting back in the director’s chair with this incredible cast.”

“My character Angela is really trying her best to find her place in this world she doesn't understand yet - but she's determined and brave enough to take on whatever comes her way," said Kristen Renton. “I’m excited to begin shooting a Uwe Boll film in New York.”
