Medieval Times Headed For Movie Screen

By MIKE FLEMING JR | Monday May 13, 2013 @ 10:40am PDTTags: Benderspink, Broken Road, Medieval Times



EXCLUSIVE: The production companies Benderspink and Broken Road have teamed to make a rights deal with the Middle Ages-centric Medieval Times. Their aim is to take the branded dinner and tournament venue and get medieval on turning it into a feature film property. They’re putting together a package to shop to studios. Medieval Times has hosted over 53 million visitors to date in nine locations. Each event pits six knights in jousting tournaments and swordfighting competitions for the title of King’s Champion. Each location is housed in a replica 11th-century Spanish castle and features 30 horses and 75 actors. They celebrate 30 years of business this December. The chain was seen in The Cable Guy and Garden State. Benderspink has The Hangover Part III and We’re The Millers coming this summer. Broken Road’s Todd Garner is in post on Black Sky for New Line, and he also recently sold Tag, which now has Will Ferrell and Jack Black attached.

I swear these idiots would buy the rights to my soiled underwear if it had brand recognition.

I've never heard of this place, so to me this will just be a generic medieval jousting movie.

OK, this is just a really stupid idea.

Honestly, I'd expect this to go the opposite direction. Why isn't there an official Game of Thrones dinner theater? That might be goofy fun. This is just retarded.

I got fired from that place when I was about 20 for property destruction.

But that's a tale for the confessions thread.

I guess this will be my confession of the day. Back in 1997 while visiting Chicago, some friends and I went to the Medieval Times in Schaumburg. I really don't remember much about it except for the desert was basically a Mcdonald's apple pie.

Yeah. A Knight's Tale. (2001)

I've been to a few Medieval Times shows. They were fun
but I can't see how this would work as a fucking movie.

This is just a retarded idea.

I find this bit more disturbing. I'd have a hard time naming two "comedians" that are less funny than Jack Black and Will Fuhrell, and putting them in a movie together really is just reinforcing "everything is shit."
