Dinklage recruited for Knights of Badassdom

Remember how funny the live-action roleplaying, foam sword-fighting scenes were in ROLE MODELS? And remember how Peter Dinklage is awesome? Well, combine those two things together, and you have THE KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM. Dinklage is being approached for an unspecified part in the film whose synopsis is below:

A huge group of dedicated, costumed LARP-ers (Live Action Role-Players), dressed like knights, elves & various characters, give up their cell phones and take to the woods for the Central New Jersey Knights of Badassdom Adventure Society, where they are set to re-enact a dungeons and dragons scenario right out of the mythical Middle Ages. But when a make-believe wizard casts a spell from an ancient book bought on eBay, fantasy becomes reality as an actual demon manifests itself with a taste for blood and souls. Do these pretend warriors have the real courage to stand up and fight to save themselves and the rest of humanity?

A humorous concept to be sure, but I can’t quite put my finger on where I feel like I’ve heard this before. The film is from director Joe Lynch, who must have impressed someone with his debut of WRONG TURN 2: DEAD END, as he’s now taking on this project, described as a “heavy metal adventure.” No word on what exactly Dinklage will be doing here, but let’s not jump to elfin conclusions just yet…

Extra Tidbit: Remember the DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS movie with Marlon Wayans? Oh man.
