Good news, the long-shelved Knights of Badassdom will finally be distributed in the USA.
Entertainment One has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Joe Lynch's horror comedy, which stars Game Of Thrones‘ Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Summer Glau, reported Deadline.
There's no specific release date yet, but Knights of Badassdom will hit theaters and VOD at the same time. For your information, the version to be released won't be director Joe Lynch's cut but producer Wade Bradley's cut, since the later negociated the deal on behalf of IndieVest (Bradley screened a to potential distributors a re-cut version on March 2013); this is evidenced by the tweet Joe Lunch posted right after the announce: "Till I get a call... #NMC" (Not my cut)
Of course we're very excited that the movie will finally be released and we will keep you informed.
In Knights of Badassdom, Summer Glau teams with live-action role players who conjure up a demon from Hell by mistake and must deal with the consequences.
Pending the release of the movie, watch again the promising trailer unveiled at Comic Con 2011:
Side note: the movie poster displayed on top is not the official poster, it is fan made.

Once again Lorin, we don't know anything about that "re-cut version", besides the fact that director Joe Lynch tweeted "Not My Cut".
Maybe it's even better than Lynch's one.
Like you, I hope we will be able to see a director's cut one day. That said, given the fact that Bradley and Lynch have a major disagreement, I can't see how the company who holds the rights will release Lynch's version. We'll see.
