Entertainment One has acquired North American distribution rights to the long-in-the-can film The Knights Of Badassdom, which stars “Game Of Thrones'” Peter Dinklage, “True Blood’s” Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Summer Glau, says Deadline.
The indie fantasy comedy revolves around a group of live-action role players who mistakenly conjure up a demon from Hell and must deal with the consequences.
EOne plans a day-and-date U.S. release in theaters and on VOD.
The Joe Lynch-directed pic, written by Kevin Dreyfuss and Matt Wall, hit Comic-Con with its geek-cred cast in 2011 (“Community’s” Danny Pudi, Revenge‘s Margarita Levieva and Josh Molina also co-star).
“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 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.”
