A New LARP film?
November 17, 2011
It seems there may be another LARP film in the offing. Lancelot is in preproduction and offers this as its synopsis:
Set in modern day New York, “Lancelot” follows a group of Lord of the
Rings-like fantasy role players called “The Order of the Green
Dean, a hip, girl chasing, urbanite has his life turned upside down in
Central Park one morning when he meets the “dreamy” knight, Isabel, an enthusiastic role player dressed up in medieval-inspired garb and
engaged in a serious sword fight. Determined to make her his next
conquest, Dean infiltrates the group but must tackle a series of
offbeat challenges to prove his chivalry and valor to the skeptical
This is no easy task as they are thwarted at every turn by Roger,
Isabel’s ex-boyfriend, who now poses as a villainous Robin Hood,
traveling the park with his band of “Merry Men” and dedicated to
overthrowing “The Order.” In the battle of good versus evil,
realities come crashing together.
The cast includes:
Brandon Routh (SUPERMAN RETURNS, CHUCK)
Madeline Zima (THE NANNY, CALIFORNICATION)
Cary Elwes (THE PRINCESS BRIDE, ROBIN HOOD MEN IN TIGHTS)
Christopher Lloyd (BACK TO THE FUTURE)
Does this sound good? Well it sounds like a rom-com at LARPs expense, but as always it depends on how it’s done and how LARP is portrayed.
We will be keeping an eye out for trailers in the future, but for now there is a promo video here
