Update: The script for Knights of Badassdom has been written and is being rewritten by Matt Wall and Kevin Dreyfuss. Also note the lack of hyphen in the title – that flourish of mine was just a little line out of line.
Breaking news from Film 4 Frightfest. During an on-stage Q&A with John Landis and many of the crew and some cast (read: Linzi Drew) of An American Werewolf in London, Landis dropped a couple nice little nuggets of horror news. He had apparently been offered a picture called The Knights of Bad-assdom (my hyphen) but turned it down and directed the producers instead to who he considered the right man for the job.
That man is Wrong Turn 2’s Joe Lynch, and according to Landis he’s the guy particularly because the film deals with video games and Lynch reportedly knows all about them. Not a great deal to go on, so after the Q&A wrapped, I scooted up to Lynch and asked for more info.
