The first female has been added to the cast of new horror/comedy ‘Knights of Badassdom’ and it’s none other than every sci-fi geeks wet dream Summer Glau. Glau (below), star of TV shows ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ and ‘Firefly’, joins fellow actors Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwatean, Steve Zahn and Danny Pudi in Joe Lynch’s (‘Wrong Turn 2: Dead End’) demon-unleashing flick.
“A huge group of dedicated, costumed LARP-ers (Live Action Role-Players) , dressed like knights, elves & various characters, who give up their cell phones and take to the woods for the Central New Jersey Knights of Badassdom Adventure Society, where they are set to re-enact a dungeons and dragons scenario right out of the mythical Middle Ages.
After being dumped by his sexy girlfriend Beth, Joe reluctantly decides to join Eric and his Larping friends in the woods rather than stay behind and feel sorry for his newly single status. There he meets hot, ass-kicking, intimidating huntress LARPer Gwen, and finds himself a surreal adventure wilder than he ever imagined when a make-believe wizard casts an all-too-real spell from an ancient book he bought on EBay, releasing 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?”
‘Knights of Badassdom’ is set to begin shooting in July in Washington. In the meantime you can check out Miss Glau below and get down on your knees and pray to God you’re a man (or a woman if that’s your thang!)
