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.

Since Wade Bradley negociated the deal on behalf of IndieVest, I presume the version will be his re-cut and not Joe Lynch's vision.

I simply hope that Summer Glau's scene were kept after the re-cut.

Good news. The original trailer looked good, but the question is, how will look this cut.

  Message #7 | Cam | 26 Jul 2013, 00:08 GMT

Aw, cut version? Well I hope they really didn't butcher it, xP

  Message #8 | Metal | 26 Jul 2013, 03:05 GMT

Well if it was released on time it would've a lot, but now it depends whether the movie is that good and whether this is the original cut.

  Message #9 | Metal | 26 Jul 2013, 03:06 GMT

If I was Joe Lynch it would've for sure. Accidentally of course. :P

If it is Wade's cut, I doubt it would be a good news it is getting released. Kinda if it really sucks or it is bad enough, it will be a waste and as if it wasn't never released.

I like that there'll be a release now, but I hope that the uncut version will become available when the dvd comes out, there are a lot of movies that have a special directors cut, maybe this will be one of them.

  Message #13 | chrisdvanne_ | 29 Jul 2013, 10:26 GMT

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.

i read an article that said that Wade Bradley said that there isn't even a re-cut, maybe the "re-cut" just has a slightly diffrent script (that might mean that it will be a 90 min movie instead of a 70 min one).

  Message #15 | chrisdvanne_ | 30 Jul 2013, 10:24 GMT

So much hard work and love went into this glorious production. I hope that everyone who made it happen gets to see it at its best, and enjoy the release.

  Message #16 | dylangillian | 30 Jul 2013, 11:18 GMT

yea, even if it is a 70 min version i hope everyone will still enjoy it, i know i will.

  Message #17 | Cegorach | 31 Jul 2013, 12:47 GMT

It is a relief the story has a positive end, regardless of the cut which made it through.

After all later it can all be released in a different form.

  Message #18 | dylangillian | 31 Jul 2013, 15:07 GMT

maybe if it sells well there will be a release of the full version.

  Message #19 | REG | 01 Aug 2013, 06:36 GMT

sweet finally we'll get to see it! I hope Summer's parts are in tact.
