As fans we love to see films that give us the nudge, nudge, wink wink of fan service. But what if you could see an entire movie made up of nothing but that? Would it work as a film? The Knights of Badassdom panel at San Diego Comic-Con last year hinted at a film that hopes to do precisely that. But despite being directed by Joe Lynch, and having a cast that includes Peter Dinklage, Danny Pudi, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, and Summer Glau, the film is yet to be released.
There must have been some major issues with distribution for Knights of Badassdom, because the fan page on Facebook with its 24,000 followers, has mostly been fielding comments complaining about how the film began production in 2011 and by the end of 2012 the release promise still hasn’t been kept. A trailer is a promising move, though. Will we see the release in 2013?
But take a look at this thing – what happens when LARP crosses the line and becomes as real as the cars you drive there in?
To the producers and actors and everybody who worked on this movie, we can only say this:
Release the film already and take our money.
