I have been following Joe Lynch‘s Knights of Badassdom for a long time. It is finally getting released as you can see in the announcement video below.
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn, and Ryan Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the mythical Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus from the pits of hell.
Fantasy and reality collide on the Fields of Evermore in an all-out epic battle of make-believe wizards, demons, and assorted mythical creatures. Their courage and friendship are put to the test as they attempt to vanquish the evil they have summoned. Will the group prove to simply be foam sword-wielding LARPers or true “Knights of Badassdom”?
Summer Glau also stars.
I have wanted to see the film for ages so it is good to know it is almost with us. Sadly, it appears this will not be Lynch’s original cut, but instead the Producer’s cut which is not meant to be quite as good. There was trouble behind the scenes (details here) which is a shame.
The film is available On Demand and Digitally February 11th.
