Director Kristen Stewart (I know what you’re thinking, but no, not that Kristen Stewart) has released a statement about her film, “The Legend of the Red Reaper.” The film, backed by Uwe Boll, is finally making its way to audiences, and below you can see the official trailer and poster from the film.

Here’s Stewart’s statement on the film:

“Ladies and Gents – this is the movie I’ve been telling you about for over a year now.

Legend of the Red Reaper, my pet project, abandoned by the producers after a significant amount of production money was lifted from the budget, was nursed back to health by myself, Tara Cardinal, and up and coming female director Kristen Stewart (no relation to the Twilight actress). Together we forged a head, gathering a film army of dedicated cast and crew – some new and some old. The film was rewritten, recast and PAs were promoted to producer status. Houses were forclosed, some body parts donated to science – but the money was raised to tell a story that I believe in with my heart soul (and some long lost body parts).

Editor after editor jumped ship, holding up the project even further. Finally, Uwe Boll came to the rescue. The project was brought to his attention by lead actress Tara Cardinal, who also appears in two of his other projects, (Zombie Massacre and the Profane Exhibit with Clint Howard). Uwe, along with martial arts legend Ho-Sung Pak (Drunken Master with Jackie Chan) took the project on, using their combined extensive resources to pull together the epic fantasy action period peice the project it was always supposed to be.

After much ado, the new Legend of the Red Reaper trailer and one sheet fresh for AFM 2012”
