Theme restaurant Medieval Times to become a movie

May. 14, 2013by: Alex Maidy

No, this is not a joke. Hollywood has officially run out of ideas. When you option a 30 year old reataurant to make it into a movie, you have hit a new low as an industry. While I will wait with bated breath for movie versions of Applebees, Red Robin, and IHOP, the first to become a movie will be Medieval Times.

According to Deadline, the chain restaurant that features knights, princesses, wenches, and jousting has been optioned by Benderspink and Broken Road who are pitching the project to studios. While pitches are like assholes (everyone has one), I would not be surprised if this actually happens. Benderspink is also producing THE HANGOVER PART III and WE'RE THE MILLERS. If they can get some big names on board for this, it would be a cross-promotional dream for everyone involved.

For me, all I can think of is my favorite scene from THE CABLE GUY. Say, if Jim Carrey can somehow get involved in this, that would be awesome!

Best scene ever!

I mean Waiting was based off of a Ruby Tuesdays, and that was a great movie.... Given the right cast and story this might not be a bad idea.

If it's anything like Monty Python and the Holy Grail...nah, that's hoping for too much.

Always happy when Hollywood disappoints me, because I see way too many movies as it is

I suppose the red-and-yellow knight will be the hero, and the green knight will be the villain?

i wouldn't be surprised if its about some kind of slacker who gets a job at Medieval Times, sees a beautiful girl who works there, somehow time travels to actual medieval times, and saves the princess who... looks exactly like the hot girl he saw earlier, all the while learning some lesson about responsibility.

What's so strange about this idea? It will just another zany workplace comedy. The last restaurant movie I saw was Broken Lizard's The Slammin' Salmon and I enjoyed that one. Now it will be about a restaurant with knights.

We already have Harold and Kumar go to White Castle so is this really that far fetched? No. Bad idea, very yes

Yeah but H & K isn't about White Castle. This seems to be more along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean or even Battleship.
