The Truth about Joe Lynch’s Knights Of Badassdom Cut

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Oct 01, 2014 / 2 COMMENTS


Summer Glau, Ryan Kwanten and Steve Zahn in 'Knights of Badassdom'.

Joe Lynch gives exclusive information about his Knights of Badassdom cut, reveals the name of a famous action star who has seen Lynch's cut and loved it, and gives hope to all the fans who wants to see the unreleased version of the horror comedy starring Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, Margarita Levieva, Danny Pudi and Jimmi Simpson.
 
Joe Lynch was at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas in September 2014 for the world premiere of his Salma Hayek high-octane, high-body count, bulletfest of an action movie 'Everly'. Entertainment site We Got This Covered interviewed Lynch about Everly but could not pass the opportunity to talk about Knights of Badassdom. 
 

Here's an excerpt from Lynch's interview:

Kurt Russell watched *my cut* of Knights Of Badassdom and said it was better than Ghostbusters. MY CUT! Not the one that went out, the version I had.

 
Lynch must be particularly proud to have been validated by Snake Plissken himself, since he revealed his son’s middle name is "Plissken". Verily!

Later in the interview, Lynch talks about scenes that were cut in the released version and why.
 

WGTC: So I have to end talking about Knights Of Badassdom. Your cut exists. People have seen it. Kurt freaking Russell has seen it and loved it. Others rave about it. Why hasn’t the public seen it yet and when are we going to? This is something that needs to happen.

Joe Lynch: No comment! [winks emphatically] I’ll tell you this – eOne has approached me about [my cut]. The version released was extremely successful on VOD and Blu-Ray, EXTREMELY successful, and look, there’s a lot of fans of the movie. If you didn’t know anything about the controversy, you’d think it’s a fun little romp. It’s just unfortunate that I was never given a DGA (Directors Guild Of America) screening, and that’s mandatory. My version has been seen – Kurt Russell saw it and said it was better than Ghostbusters – do I need to say anymore? I was making The Goonies for grownups where the final product ended up being more Role Models with the little bit of blood they couldn’t cut out and were stuck with.

WGTC: I sat there watching Knights Of Badassdom knowing full-well your version probably contains so many decapitations, bloody battles, and absolute insanity, and THAT’S what I want to see. Is that pretty on-point?

Joe Lynch: Oh completely, but it’s not even that. There’s a whole 10 minute ending that was cut purely for financial reasons. They didn’t want to finish the special effects and the owner didn’t like someone’s dress. I was like, “Come on, really? That’s the reason why?” He was like, “No, of course not!” Yea, whatever, that was the reason why.

[...]

But yes, someday my version will be released, it will definitely happen.

I wonder whose dress Joe Lynch is referring to. Margarita Levieva is the only character wearing a dress iirc.

i'd love to see the original version (as does everyone). i mean the released version was nice, but i feel like we missed out on allot of stuff.
