Peter Dinklage to Star in an R-Rated Leprechaun Comedy
Peter Dinklage is the best; let’s just get that out of the way first. Exhibit A is his endlessly entertaining work as Tyrion Lannister in ‘Game of Thrones.’ Exhibit B is that he just signed on to star in an R-rated leprechaun comedy for Paramount Pictures. Oh Dinklage!
Described as ‘Bad Santa’ but with a leprechaun, The Hollywood Reporter says the untitled comedy would star Dinklage as a crook who cons people into thinking he’s actually a leprechaun. Like ‘Bad Santa’ before it, the film is reportedly “deep in R-rated terrority” and from his work on ‘Game of Thrones,’ we’re sure Dinklage knows his way around a few curse words.
Written by Andrew Dodge, who wrote Jason Bateman’s upcoming directorial debut ‘Bad Words,’ the film would have to wait until Dinklage wraps filming on ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4, which is currently underway.
The Emmy-winning and always-awesome actor can be seen next in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ which opens in theaters on July 18, 2014.
