Medieval Times isn’t just for dinner anymore. The live action dinner theater is jousting its way to movie theaters. Production companies Benderspink and Broken Road have partnered to forge a deal for rights to the franchise. I want to laugh, but crazier things have worked. Given the popularity of the fantasy genre on screen right now, they could easily take the name and make an epic movie. It could go the other way, too. If the worst case is another film like A Knight’s Tale I’d be okay with that.
The companies are putting together a package to take around studios. I can only hope that the pitch package is presented by knights in shining armor alongside chicken served without utensils.
