Nearly two years ago, director Joe Lynch arrived with cast in
tow to the now legendary Hall H of San Diego Comic Con where annually, films
begin to bang the drum of anticipation. Joined by actors beloved by genre fans—GAME
OF THRONES’ Peter Dinklage and FIREFLY’s Summer Glau—the filmmaker presented
the trailer for a picture entrenched in Live Action Role Playing, metal and
monsters: KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM. After an undeniably positive response, the
question remains in March 2013; where is it?
A detailed, time lined and fed up open letter has attempted to answer such a question. Badassdom.com is an anonymously-created site from a stakeholder,
who alleges Wade Bradley, CEO of IndieVest and now Media Society has
effectively taken KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM “hostage.” Following its Comic Con
preview in July 2011, it seems Bradley forcibly removed Mark Burton (president)
and Matt Wall (writer) from their positions in the production company and has
been on a roll of re-editing and financially draining resources since. The
result is accusing Bradley’s new Media Society of ignoring the creatives and investors of KNIGHTS OF
BADASSDOM, seeking additional funds, as well as planning to hold a private sales screening of a drastically recut 70-minute version of the film tomorrow, March 5th.
It seems those involved in KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM and
IndieVest are attempting to wrestle control from Bradley, linking to additional
reporting of misdeeds, as well as calling for IndieVest to sort themselves out and for whoever purchases the film to
give it back to Joe Lynch. Hopefully this campaign is successful and the proper
vision of KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM, which certainly looks to deliver, is unleashed.
