    Don Cheadle Making Progress With Miles Davis Project...

    "I actually just got off the phone with the studio executives about putting it together. It’s a difficult time to make films, especially ones that don’t have people flying or sequels or cars. We’re struggling through, but it’s going to happen."

    Comic-Con '11: 'Knights of Badassdom' Gets Trailer & First Look Image

    LARP Movie Ruled Hall H With A Foam SwordBeing the geekiest panel at Comic-Con's Hall H takes some work, but for our money, the honor goes to the LARP horror-comedy "Knights of Badassdom" and their Saturday nerdfest. For the uninitiated, LARP stands for "Live Action Role-Play," so picture Dungeons & Dragons with costumes and foam swords on a battlefield off a highway somewhere (you'll recall some of this from the subplot and ending of "Role Models"). Before the panel began, actual LARPers in costume led the audience in a shout of "huzzah!" and director Joe Lynch clearly was in awe of his film's Hall H presence, walking on stage and saying, "Holy shit! Hall H rules!" Clearly ecstatic over being at Comic-Con as a presenter rather than an attendee, he said, "I'm LARPing right now, I'm role-playing, I'm a director. That's what we're trying to get across right now: that you can be someone else."
