Peter Dinklage to star in Edgar Allan Poe-inspired Hop Frog

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 Poe’s 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.
