Zero Charisma

Chris Hardwick might be taking over the nerd world. Which is fine, for the most part, as long as he continues to be a force for good. Firmly in the “force for good” category is getting into the film distribution business and bringing SXSW Audience Award winner Zero Charisma to audiences around the country. In partnership with Tribeca Film, Nerdist Industries will distribute the directorial debut of Katie Graham and Andrew Matthews, which follows the story of Scott (Sam Eidson), a table-top game enthusiast whose quest to lead his friends on Dungeons & Dragons-esque quests comes with a bit more off-table drama than he’s equipped to handle.

It will make sense in context in both films, we promise. We begin tonight with an image of Jack Black in Richard Linklater’s black comedy Bernie, about a small-town mortician who makes friends with an elderly woman (played by Shirley MacLaine). The mustache looks creepy, but the last time Black and Linklater teamed up (School of Rock), Black was at his best. Here’s hoping that happens again when the film opens next month’s LA Film Festival.
