How's this for a dream team: Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones") and Edgar Allan Poe? For whatever reason, this just seems like a match made in heaven - and thanks to the movie gods, the two shall be in collaboration soon, according to Screen Daily.

Dinklage is set to star in HOP FROG, an adaptation of the famous Poe tale; Mark Palansky (PENELOPE) is directing from Brian Alan Carr's screenplay.

The story revolves around:

...a puppeteer who poses as a court jester to exact revenge on the knights who murdered his uncle and kidnapped the woman he loves.

Dinklage had this to say about the project:

Hop Frog is beautiful and vicious... It has haunted me ever since I read Poes original tale of revenge years ago. I can think of no other director than Mark Palansky to bring this new imagining of it vibrantly to life."

Put this one on your "must see" list right this very second.

Hop-Frog has not been done too often such as Fall of the Usher and The Black Cat possibly have been. A Hop-Frog adaptation is welcome. The director and star are promising choices. Hopefully, this Hop-Frog can both entertain and educate at the theatre and in the classroom. A person would not mind if screenwriter Brian Alan Carr resembles Brian Alan Lane, the literary scholar. Poe needs to remain popular in and outside the academy.
