John Malkovich has joined the cast of comic book convention laffer “Supercon.”

Pic, which is currently lensing in New Orleans, follows a group of washed up television stars and comic book artists who make their living attending conventions. Down on their luck, the ragtag team hashes a plot to rob the convention and bring justice to a crooked promoter and an overbearing former TV icon.

Malkovich, whose recent credits include “100 Years” and upcoming actioner “Deepwater Horizon,” joins Maggie Grace, Mike Epps, Russell Peters, Clancy Brown and CariDee English in the pic.

“Supercon” is directed by Zak Knutson, who co-penned the script with Andrew Sipes. Gold Star Films’ Joey Tufaro and Todd Trosclair produce alongside Momentum Productions’ Susan Gorrell and Maria J. McDonald.

    Make sure you see Dana Snyder at Florida Supercon this weekend, it’ll be the last year you see him there after this comes out (he wrote it as well, and the “crooked promoter” is CLEARLY Mike Broder)

    Can’t decide if this is a rehash of tower heist or a complete rip off of Alan’s Tudyk’s Con Man.
