Knights of Badassdom Finally Gets a Release

But Probably Not in the Director's Desired Version

Two years ago, Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2) directed the horror comedy Knights of Badassdom. An official release was in limbo because of disagreements between the makers and the director lost the rights to the movie. Only a few visitors of the San Diego Comic Con saw the film.

The plot revolves around a group of LARPers (Live-Action Role Players) played by Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage and Summer Glau, among others, who accidentally summoned a demon that wants to kill them. Sounds like a typical "wouldn't it be cool if...." idea that was made with little financial backing but some well-known faces. As mentioned before, internal battles were the reason that it took until now that a distributor (eOne) picked up the film and is going to drag it into a few US cinemas. A parallel VOD release is planned, as well, and especially Dinklage has the potential to make the film a small success.

But there's also bad news since the film will most likely not be put out in the version that Joe Lynch assembled. After it got taken away from him, his former partner Wade Bradley made his own cut of the movie. Lynch doesn't know anything about the status quo and suspects that it won't be his version that will be shown in cinemas. A definitive release date has yet to be set.
