Exactly one month and ten days after it started, principal photography has wrapped on Knights of Badassdom up in Spokane, Washington. The film is directed by Joe Lynch and based on a script penned by Kevin Dreyfuss and Matt Wall.
Lynch tweeted the news (via @TheJoeLynch) and also gave us an indication of how he plans to spend his first day post-shooting:
– “The Knights Of Badassdom: That’s A Wrap!!! (July 10th-August 20th)” was followed six hours later by:
– “Just wrapped KOB hours ago. Haven’t slept in days. What are we doing? Seeing PIRANHA 3-D #FuckYeah”
Now that’s what we call a dedicated horror fan! Way to go, Joe!
Knights of Badassdom stars Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, Douglas Tait, and Danny Pudi. The flick follows the exploits of a group of LARPers (Live Action Role Players) who accidentally release a big badass demon.
Spectral Motion, who created creatures and mutants for the Hellboy and X-Men franchises, are handling the special effects duty so expect a lot from the plethora of demonic minions that are set to be unleashed.
After being dumped by his sexy girlfriend Beth, Joe (Kwanten) reluctantly decides to join Eric (Zahn) and his LARPing (Live Action Role Players) friends in the woods rather than stay behind and feel sorry for his newly single status. There he meets hot, ass-kicking, intimidating LARPer Gwen (Glau) and finds himself plunged into a surreal adventure wilder than he ever imagined when a make-believe wizard casts an all-too-real spell from an ancient book. That spell releases an actual demon with a taste for human blood — and souls — that starts systematically decimating the players in this suddenly deadly “game.” Will our guys become the heroes they have been pretending to be before time runs out?
