Morgan Spurlock's Comic-Con Documentary Gets a Distribution Deal

Comic-Con Episode IV - A Fan's Hope

Ever since it was revealed that Morgan Spurlock was heading to Comic-Con in 2010 to shoot a new documentary about the giant convention for fans of comics, films, television and pretty much anything and everything in pop culture, we've been waiting to lay our eyes on it. Alex checked out the film when it hit the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year, and now the rest of us will have a chance to check out Comic-Con Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope as THR reports a new distribution outfit called Wrekin Hill, teaming up with the collectible outlet NECA, will finally bring the film to theaters early next year. Read on!

The plan is to release the film in the spring of 2012 along with a multi-city tour which will include various fandom gatherings around the country. NECA says, "In the spirit of the film, we plan to go out on the road with the filmmakers to cities across the country so that fans and audiences can see the film in large theaters and small arenas, with Q&As, contests, give-aways and all sorts of special cultural presentations." For those who are just learning about the project, it follows various geeks attending Comic-Con in 2010 including an exhibitor, a costume designer and a select few others. Any attendees just might catch themselves on camera, too. Fellow film blogger Harry Knowles at Ain't It Cool News produced the film with Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin and Thomas Tull. Stay tuned!

Oh Morgan...I met this guy at the Brooklyn Museum Of Art. He was very decent. Can't wait to see this flick.

He should probably call it "A Documentary about Morgan Spurlock at Comicon". In fact that goes for all his shitty, vapid & self promoting "documentaries". Morgan Spurlock Eats McDonalds. Morgan Spurlock Goes to Afghanistan. What a fucking douche.
