Peter Dinklage to Star in Rumpelstiltskin Movie for Sony
Peter Dinklage is charting out life after Game of Thrones.
The actor is attached to star in a Rumpelstiltskin movie for Sony, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Author Patrick Ness is set to write the screenplay for the film. Ness is best known for books that include A Monster Calls, which was made into a 2016 movie by JA Bayona and starred Felicity Jones, and the science-fiction trilogy Chaos Walking, an adaptation of which will hit theaters in March via Lionsgate.
The Rumpelstiltskin movie would be based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about a girl who is tasked with spinning straw into gold for an evil king that threatens execution. Unable to do so, she makes a deal with an imp (Rumpelstiltskin) that she comes to regret.
Karen Rosenfelt; Circle of Confusion’s Matt Smith; and David Alpert, David Ginsberg and Josh Weinstock are producing.
Dinklage, who will be wrapping up his Game of Thrones tenure with the final season set to air in 2019, will next be seen in Reed Morano's sci-fi film I Think We're Alone Now. The actor has won two Emmys and a Golden Globe for his work as Tyrion Lannister on the HBO drama.
Dinklage is repped by CAA and Jackoway Austen.
