John Malkovich Heads to Comic Book Convention Comedy ‘Supercon’

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.
