Brace yourselves folks, for there is a new Leprechaun-themed movie coming. This time around, however, it won’t be Warwick Davis in a crappy costume running around killing people. In fact, it looks like Game of Thrones fan-favorite, Peter Dinklage will be taking on the leprechaun role, and it won’t be a campy horror flick.
The script is being put together by newcomer to the industry, Andrew Dodge and is being billed as a Bad Santa-esque comedy film in which Dinklage will play a man that tries to convince people that he’s actually a true-to-life leprechaun. If it carries the same level of over-the-top vulgarity and ridiculousness as the movie they’re comparing it to, it should be quite the sight to see what Dinklage can do with it.
So far, there’s no director attached or any other info on the film, but stay tuned and we’ll let you know what we learn as we learn it. And considering that Dinklage is a pretty busy boy with his other projects, that could be a while.
Thanks to /Film for the heads-up.
