A Geek Film for True Geeks: Knights of Badassdom

What do you get when you combine Summer Glau (Firefly/Serenity), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Danny Pudi (Community), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) with LARPing?  The best freaking geek movie ever! Knights of Badassdom, as if the name isn't cool enough, is a comedy, horror, fantasy adventure all rolled into one.  This star-studded cast made waves at Comic Con and you can be sure this movie will continue to gain momentum. 

The following is the description from the Knights of Badassdom panel and Q&A at Comic Con:
[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 (Live Action Role Playing) 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 on 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. The panel will include a Comic-Con exclusive trailer and a discussion/Q&A with stars Ryan Kwanten (HBO's True Blood, Red Hill), Peter Dinklage (HBO's Game of Thrones, Station Agent), Steve Zahn, pending availability (HBO's Tremé, Saving Silverman), Summer Glau (Firefly, Serenity, The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Danny Pudi (NBC's Community), Jimmi Simpson, pending availability (A&E's Breakout Kings, Date Night), Margarita Levieva (The Lincoln Lawyer, Adventureland). and director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2). Knights of Badassdom will be released in Spring 2012.]

Unfortunately the film won’t be released until spring 2012. So, in the mean time, check out their Facebook page to keep up to date.
