Today, Entertainment One, who picked up Joe Lynch's KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM back in July, has finally announced a release date for the film which will now see a VOD release on February 11th, 2014. Unfortunately, however, they will not be releasing the director's cut of the film. F*cking bummer, man! Maybe someday we'll get the chance to see Lynch's intended cut of the film, but for now we are all going to have to settle with what we've got, and any version of the film better than no version at all, right? ...Right?
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM stars Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Summer Glau. Lynch is currently in post-production on the thriller EVERLY starring Salma Hayek. Let's hope that film can stay in one piece!
In this humorous fantasy adventure from IndieVest Pictures, Joe (Ryan Kwanten) is a heavy metal rocker who’s just gone through a painful breakup with his girlfriend, Beth (Margarita Levieva). His concerned roommates (Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage) kidnap him to their LARP gathering, where he enters a realm of fantasy escapism in which pretend knights, elves, and barbarians clash with foam weaponry on a mock battlefield. When Joe’s “sorcerer” roommate (Zahn) inadvertently summons a deadly succubus that takes Beth’s seductive form, bloody reality crashes down upon their fantasy world. Once LARPers start to turn up dead, the make-believe wizards and warriors must become the real life heroes they have been pretending to be in order to conquer the evil that has been unleashed.
