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!

He also had small but pivotal parts in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" and "Avengers: Infinity War."
