Summer Glau joins The Knights of Badassdom. Well that's what Bleeding Cool is saying. The movie is a horror comedy about a bunch of LARPers (live-action role players) who fight real demons.

That sounds like Jim Butcher's short story It's My Birthday Too in Dresdan verse.

Sounds perfect! (If true :)
Needs a better title.
Ah, awesome. Always glad to see some more of Summer!
Sounds like fun.
Hopefully "Lighting Bolt! Lightning Bolt!" is a phrase capable of rending the beasts of hell asunder.

Shouldn't Felicia Day be involved with this somehow?
I'm with windmillchaser on this one. This would be the next step in the Guild series...if they had the CGI budget, of course
That's silly, everyone knows Summer Glau has been a knight of badassdom since "War Stories."
I like this title so much I might watch this.
It looks like I may be working on this film. Cool!
Abed and River xD i know their just characters xD but i can totally see both of them LARPing xD yep felicia day should be here just like what windmillchaser said
I am so very sick of the 21st Century dialect of English. Another film I won't even consider watching.

Well then... see you in ninety years!

ETA: A little something for the curious amongst us - Plot Synopsis via slashfilm.com:

A huge group of dedicated, costumed LARP-ers (Live Action Role-Players) , dressed like knights, elves & various characters, 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?

The English language always has been and always will be in constant flux. Always evolving and growing. I adore that. Keep up or learn French. :)
DaddyCatALSO Ya know what they say about those in glass houses, my friend. You know very well you have a language all unto yourself. And I say that in the nicest way possible.

Besides, what are you complaining about? "Badassdom" or LARP? 'cause...well, blame Joss for people's tendencies to stick "dom" and "Y" and "ish" on the ends of words. And LARP has been around for as long as people have been role-playing.

I think it sounds fun. Then again, that's the kind of thing I'm into.
Back in my day, we called 'em badacres.

ETA Or badalecks.

It's just a funny title, DaddyCatALSO, something like "Kick-Ass".

Not just English, only the dead languages (sorry Latin), don't modify. However, I believe the last change in Portuguese grammar was just to make me more illiterate. :(

Edit: Because I really don't know English.
