Peter Dinklage to Star in RUMPELSTILTSKIN

Peter Dinklage

Peter Dinklage is set to star in Rumpelstiltskin, an adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale for Sony.

Patrick Ness, the author of the book A Monster Calls, which was turned into the 2016 animated feature of the same name, and the science-fiction trilogy Chaos Walking, is set to write the screenplay.

The fairy tale centers on an evil king who forces a young girl to spin straw into gold on a magical spinning wheel. To help her with the task, she enlists the aid of a magical imp to be played by Dinklage.

I have to admit, as much as I like Dinklage’s work, I did wince when this news was announced. It seems like such an obvious move to cast him in this part, perhaps especially after his wonderfully counter-intuitive casting as a giant in The Avengers: Infinity War.

No director has been attached to the project and Sony has not yet set a release date.
