Statham & Sobieski Join 'Dungeon Siege'

Jason Statham and Leelee Sobieski are set to topline director Uwe Boll's adaptation of the sword-and-sorcery video game Dungeon Siege, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Statham plays the film's hero, Farmer, and Sobieski plays Muriella, daughter of the court sorcerer Merrick, who will be played by John Rhys Davies.

Also starring are Ron Perlman as Norick, Farmer's friend; Matthew Lillard as Duke Fallow; Burt Reynolds as King Konreid; and Kristanna Loken as Elora, an enchanted tree-like creature whose support proves critical to Farmer.

The production will film in and around Vancouver through mid-September.
