Peter Dinklage Lines Up 'Rumpelstiltskin' Movie
Emmy-winning "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage is developing a "Rumpelstiltskin" movie at Sony.
Let's review what the classic fairy tale character has in common with Tyrion Lannister:
-- Short of stature
-- Loves gold (in the classic tale, he helps an imprisoned girl appear to spin straw into gold)
-- Not completely trustworthy
-- Drinks wine and knows things (or so we assume)
Author Patrick Ness of "A Monster Calls" will write the screenplay, Variety reports.
Dinklage just set an Emmy record with his seventh nomination, the the most for any actor for playing the same character. Bravo!
