knights of badassdomThe long-awaited Knights of Badassdom, starring Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Summer Glau, has been thought dead by the larp community. After its strong start atComic Con 2011, it was viewed by hopeful larpers as a badass movie that doesn’t paint us all in the light pop media likes to shine on our beloved hobby. Unfortunately, director Joe Lynch and IndieVest producer Wade Bradley didn’t see eye to eye in the editing phase, turning Lynch’s 90+ minute movie into a 70 minute product he wasn’t allowed to take part in.

In case you’ve forgotten, here’s the official description:

After being dumped by his sexy girlfriend Beth, Joe reluctantly decides to join Eric and his LARPing friends in the woods rather than stay behind and feel sorry for his newly single status. There he meets hot, ass-kicking, intimidating LARPer Gwen, and finds himself plunged into a surreal adventure wilder than he ever imagined when a make-believe wizard casts an all-too-real spell from an ancient book. That spell releases an actual demon with a taste for human blood — and souls — that starts systematically decimating the players in this suddenly deadly game. Will our guys become the heroes they have been pretending to be before time runs out?

Ontario-based company Entertainment One recently bought the North American distribution rights to the movie. They are currently planning a day-and-date theatrical release across North America, along with VOD. As of the writing of this article, there are no set dates or locations for release. We’ll keep you posted!

This is a hopeful step in the right direction, but what does it mean? Will Lynch get to share his vision for the movie, or will the truncated version be released to the public? Will it be as badass as we hope? Looks like we’ll have to wait until the release to find out.

    I have been waiting for this movie since I first heard rumors about it. If we are fortunate, they will release the Lynch edition. This would make for an excellent group outing. Heck, LARPING.ORG might want to rent out a theater for fundraising event. 🙂

      What are the last three larp films out in theaters, Thomas? I’m just wondering if I missed one. All I can think of is “The Wild Hunt” and “Role Models”.

    The delay may work out to everyone’s advantage. In 2011 not many people had even heard of the movie “the Station Agent” or it’s Lead. Now Everyone knows who Peter ” Just give him the freakin’ Emmy already” DInklage is. Hopefully they’ll run the full 90 minute cut.

      I’m pondering what other LARP films have been in theaters as well.

      If we are fortunate we will get good exposure and the original 90 minute cut. If we are extremely fortunate it will be a great movie that reflects generally positively on our hobby. 🙂
