The movie version of sports comedy series “Blue Mountain State” is finally coming. If the trailer is any indication, it promises to deliver on the laughs that its television counterpart provided in spades to its loyal fans from 2010 to 2011.
The show, created by Eric Falconer and Chris Romano, revolves around three incoming freshmen at a Midwestern college who must learn how to deal with football, girls, and fraternities.
In the movie, titled “Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland,” one of the main characters Thad Castle, played by Alan Ritchson, will be drafted into the NFL where he will be given a chance to start fresh.
However, given the amount of trouble that he and his friends got into when they were in college, it may prove difficult for Thad to leave it all behind.
In the trailer, which seems to be part of a dream sequence, Thad is being ushered into a carnival with gates bearing his likeness, with his friend Alex Moran (Darin Brooks) leading the tour.
Aside from a lot of people partying, Alex reveals that in Thadland, it snows cocaine.
Thad proceeds to the stage to shade Disney’s version of imagination, and he exclaims in delight, “This is Thadland!”
“Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland” is directed by Lev Spiro, who also directed the television series.
Aside from “Blue Mountain State,” Spiro also directed episodes of hit comedy shows like “Everybody Hates Chris,” “Modern Family,” and “The Neighbors.”
Ritchson, who plays Thad, and Chris Romano, who plays Sammy Cacciatore, also share writing credits with show co-creator Eric Falconer for the movie.
While the trailer hints at a 2016 release, no official date has been announced for the movie yet.
