Bloody Disgusting has learned that Danny Pudi, the star of the vastly hilarious NBC sitcom Community, has joined the cast of The Knights of Badassdom.
Joe Lynch, who previously helmed Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, will direct the horror/comedy from a script by Kevin Dreyfuss and Matt Wall.
Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Steve Zahn (Shattered Glass) and Peter Dinklage (Death at a Funeral) will also star as a group of LARPers who accidentally release a real-life demon.
For those of you who have either been to a renaissance festival nor seen the films Darkon or Role Models, LARPers are middle ages enthusiasts who dress in medieval costumes and engage in faux-combat with fake weapons.
The Buzz: This film has comedy gold written all over it.
Danny Pudi is absolute riot as Abed, the movie-obsessed odd-ball student at Community‘s Greendale College. I’ve been dying to see him in a film — but not enough to brave the waters that are Road Trip 2: Beer Pong.
The cast and plot for this film likewise sound like they should add up for some serious laughs. Congratulations, Mr. Lynch. You officially have raised my interest levels from intrigued to excited.
