Joe Lynch's indie film Knights of Badassdom is all set to come San Diego Comic-Con. The story follows a group of costumed LARPers (Live Action Role Players) who accidentally release a real-life Heavy Metal demon.
The panel for the film will take place on Saturday July 23rd at 2:15pm in Hall H. The panel will include a Comic-Con exclusive trailer and there will be a discussion and Q&A with stars Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Summer Glau (Firefly, Serenity, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Danny Pudi (Community), Margarita Levieva (The Lincoln Lawyer), and the films director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2).
This movie sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing what exactly they are going to show at the panel.
Here's the synopsis for the film:
After being dumped by his sexy girlfriend Beth, Joe (Kwanten) reluctantly decides to join Eric (Zahn) and his LARPing (Live Action Role Players) friends in the woods rather than stay behind and feel sorry for his newly single status. There he meets hot, ass-kicking, intimidating LARPer Gwen (Glau), and finds himself plunged into a surreal adventure wilder than he ever imagined when a make-believe wizard casts an all-too-real spell from an ancient book. That spell releases an actual demon with a taste for human blood -- and souls -- that starts systematically decimating the players in this suddenly deadly "game." Will our guys become the heroes they have been pretending to be before time runs out?
