I’ve been paying attention to The Knights Of Badassdom since last summer when the cast was announced, and the project has only gotten more exciting. It’s got a cast that any self-respecting nerd would kill to meet, with Firefly‘s Summer Glau, Game Of Thrones‘ Peter Dinklage, True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten, and Community‘s Danny Pudi. It’s got an original topic- the world of live action role playing, which it approaches with an attitude more affectionate than disdainful. And it’s got some amazing buzz out of SDCC, which isn’t surprising, seeing as how it’s tailor-made for that audience. But most importantly, it looks funny. Check out the first trailer for a taste of the badassness.
Knights of Badassdom doesn’t have a release date yet, but I’d expect it early 2012. In the meantime, if you can’t wait, you can pretend that Game Of Thrones is an credibly high-budget re-inactment of a LARP campaign. Or just watch the trailer.
